Electromobility has never been so beautiful before.

“The powertrain is all-modern and was a co-engineering exercise between ICON and Stealth EV. The dual electric motor, transmission-less design provides 470 lb-ft of freight-train torque and the equivalent of 400 horsepower, with no shifts all the way up to the Merc’s 120 MPH top speed. A full Tesla Performance 85kWh battery array is strategically fit throughout the vehicle for exceptional weight balance. It is capable of an estimated 150- to 200-mile range and has 1.5-hour full recharge capability.“

Now the car claims the title of Fastest Zero Emissons car in Europe thanks to two electric fork truck motors, 60 Odyssey PC680 12V batteries and a Zilla 2K motor controller all delivering 1200 lb-ft of torque to the ground.

[...] 0-to-60 MPH time around 3.0 seconds and a quarter-mile run of 11.24 seconds at 114 MPH [...]
