Detroit Preview: Saba Motors Carbon Zero electric roadster will return
Details on the Zero Carbon roadster are scarce and questionable at best, but as far as we can decipher, the roadster's claimed weight of 1,900 pounds is key to the vehicle's range and performance attributes. The two-seater features an aluminum chassis and lightweight carbon-fiber body work. It gets its go juice from lithium batteries built by ThunderSky and boasts a claimed range of 120 to 140 miles. Company chief executive officer Simon Saba states that the lithe roadster can run from 0 to 60 miles per hour "in the range of 5 seconds." While the numbers appear impressive, we'll have to wait until this vehicle hits the streets to find out if it's as capable as the company claims.
