The most remarkable features of the e1 are the light weight: 500 kg (1102 lb) and that it can only be driven by drivers that are no heavier than than 70kg (150lb, no comment). It uses a 110kW, quadripolar, liquid-cooled, AC induction motor (150hp) that propels the car to 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in less than five seconds and gives the e1 a maximum speed of 230 km/h and maximum torque of 250 Nm (185 lb-ft). The lithium-ion batteries, distributed along the car's floor, weigh only 84 kg and use a signature ceramic membrane that separates the anode from the cathode, giving the car a range over 300 km (200 mi).
