We last heard of the Mindset electric sportscar in February of this year, so when we saw an update (even just a mild one) of the hybrid car, we decided to share it with you. First, the car's got a name now: E-Motion. Clever, right? 'E' is for electric, we'd imagine, while the Motion part seems pretty self-explanatory. There don't seem to be any real changes made to the body's overall design, which strikes us as a unique blend of modern Karmann Ghia, especially up front, and the shooting brake syle that's become so popular on concepts these last few years.
Power comes from a 94-horsepower electric motor along with a small 24-horse gasoline-powered V2 engine. Lithium ion batteries of untold capacity hold the electrons. An extremely light weight - just 800kg (1764 lbs) - ensures sporty driving dynamics and acceleration on par with sportscar rivals such as the Lotus Elise. Starting in '09, 10,000 examples are scheduled to be built with a price of €50,000. There's a video of the E-Motion pasted after the break for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!
