Dale Vince's "wind-powered" Nemesis electric car has finally made a public appearance during its official "launch" at the RAC Brighton to London Future Car Rally. The sad news? Anyone hoping for a production version of the Nemesis will be disappointed to know that any chance of that has pretty much been quashed. The happy news? Vince and his team are working on a second-gen Nemesis, one that might be able to go 250 miles per hour. Because when you're building electric vehicles for the fun of it, why not make them outrageous?
Want some headline specifications for the Nemesis? Of course you do:
- Top speed: 170mph
- 0-100: 8.5 seconds
- Battery capacity: 36kWh
- Range: 100-150 miles depending on driving style
- Cost: Under £1m
- Time to build: 18 months
