Sometimes you come across numbers that simply must be fantasy. That was our first (and only) thought when we read about a new electric car that is supposedly coming with help from the government of Oman. Here's what we mean:
  • Range: 2,250 miles
  • Time between required maintenance: 21 years
  • 0-60 time: four seconds
  • 800 horsepower engine
  • Price tag: between $70,000 and $91,000
This is what Sultan bin Hamad al-Amri, chief executive office of Noor Majan, said he has been working on recently, according to UPI, a respected news outlet. The car has been undergoing a feasibility study for the past year and al-Amri claims to have gotten, "preliminary approvals from the Ministry of Trade and Industry and the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs." The car will also supposedly have a solar-powered air conditioner and massage chairs. Here's a question: is mid-June some sort of April Fool's Day thing in Oman?
