    Hyundai battery tech is currently the bees knees so should be better than Tesla battery tech kg for kg/ km for km
    IMHO - It's $100k, the nearest ICE model in their range is the Santa Fe which is $60k with equivalent spec. $40k buys a LOT of petrol

    But agreed, the Lanica Delta Intergrale look about it is tits
    Not sure how you worked out the battery tech /kg/km? They are using permanent magnet motors and the heat pump is a 3k option.

    The expected range indicates that the efficiency is pretty average too.

    The fastest one is about the speed of the slowest Tesla which costs half as much.

    Seems like another overpriced under competing nugget to me, only cool thing is the vehicle to load option.

      They keep asking for more stuff. Have sent them drivers license, bank statements, mortgage statement, payslips, ATO notice of assessment etc. Has me worried. Guess I'll find out soon. If it falls through I'll be devastated.
      Main issue is nopics isn't working at present, and all the money she makes is cash-only, which makes this rather tricky.
      Feeling pretty stressed out.

        ^ Don't, in the end it's just toy & they're only going to get cheaper + better as time goes by.
        Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

          normal Long range Model S now runs 10.8-9's at 129mph

          not quite as quick as the older model, but more MPH

          not bad VS the Plaid as the LR is $69k cheaper, so you can get the S LR and a 3 SR+ for the same money as 1 plaid

              I'm a fan of this body style (you love them or hate them) and the electric conversion with restomodding is pretty cool

              He's still going through a shakedown and getting everything finished off. Skip to 15 minutes to watch a launch from a right hand turn

                        While the Plymouth is cool and all surely it handles even worse than a stock one with all the weight up high from the battery in both the engine bay and boot. The main thing most EVs have going for them is while batteries are heavy all the weight is generally quite low in the skateboard so they have a great COG.
                        If in doubt power out

                          50 year old cars drive like shit compared to anything made today. The person has added a significant amount of parts to improve the suspension, but it's still going to be a 50 year old car

                              They look great. How much did you pay for them? When we picked up our LR my nopics said why didn't we get the black wheels!
