Video: EV buggy has 1017 Nm of torque

30 April, 2013 | by TopGear.com

This is the first all-electric vehicle to compete in the National Off Road Racing Association’s Mexican 1000 rally. And it’s got enough energy on board to power a house… for a WEEK. Yep, this 399kW, 1017 N.m. open-wheeler’s called the SR1 EV1, and it’s been built by SRI, SRD and EV West, the chaps that made a man called Bill very happy last year. It doesn’t have the juice to attack the full 1931 Km race, but it’ll be taking it on in bitsize portions. And if this video’s anything to go by, it won’t do too badly at all. See for yourself…
