We now have pure EVs in space

I love these EVs. 0 to 100 km/h in 4 days, but they can run continuously for 5 years, off solar panels. Go on, calculate how fast they would be going after 5 years!

It's poetic that Elon Musk helped put them there.

One of the fathers of MeXy the electric MX-5, along with Coulomb and Newton (Jeff Owen).
