The key reason why I will not go out and buy an electric car right now is that I would have to make compromises. If I am to change from combustion to battery power then the car MUST at least offer all that petrol power can. Currently there isn’t an electric car that has a real buzz for performance. That was until Tesla let slip about their M5 rival.
The BMW M5 is a colossally powerful saloon that is epic in just about every proportion. Tesla let the cat out of the bag in an interview saying that there is to be a Tesla Model S Sport. This car is to have M5 rivalling performance of 0-62MPH in just 4.5 seconds! With masses of torque and a supposed 300 mile range, the Model S Sport could be just what the environmentalist ordered.
