LFP batteries so you would think 100Wh/kg. 300km range on the R300 at say 160Wh/km = 48Kwh. So battery = 48000/100 = 480kg surely not?

Me thinks that the range is at 40-50km/h so more like 80wh/km => 24kwh pack. I don't like the way the markety person decided to scare us all with "radiation" - ohh look out!

Looks like they also forgot to do some km/h <=> mph conversions.

Braking 60-0 in 15m for blade, 33 for Tesla S
Accel 0-60 7.1s for blade, 4.3 for S
Planned EV: '63 Cortina using AC and LiFePO4 Battery Pack

It's got me confused. The graph shows 0-100kph takes 35seconds. Elsewhere it states it has the second best acceleration!?
The stopping distance can't be believed either unless they mean 60kph.

The price is good though at $28000.

Holes/discontinuities in the claims, lack of real photos, too-good-to-be-true (in Australia) pricing = vaporware?

Ross makes EVs no doubt about that, just ask Bernie Hobbs. And prices don't hold even on the exotica, 2008 Tesla roadsters now $50k on american ebay. Me, I'd like to get my hands on one of those EV engineering commodores, I really like that integrated drive train.
As for the EV corp website, not sure when the induction Vs PM motor debate will end, does anyone?

I got to say straight up that if that is a real company selling cars they need a way better website!
If its real its so bad it makes me think scam straight up!

When samarium and neodymium get too expensive to put into motors?
