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

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?

seems to be 100km/h to 0 stopping results
this article says 108 feet = 33 metres.

but ross has mixed up acceleration
0 - 60kmh
vs
0 - 60mph = 100kmh
