DC Auto Show: Destiny 2000 used to be a Fiero, now it's a solar electric
Today, the Destiny 2000 can go 50 miles on a charge, has a top speed of 75 mph and a 0-60 time of 11.2 seconds. There was no one around to learn a bit more about the car, so in lieu of actual information, let's imagine the fun one could have in a Fiero EV.
