I confess that in my old age ( 36 :oops: ) I have become a little skeptical of claims about new EVs until the vehicle is sitting in front of me.

But, I do hope the claims are true, and I hope they get it over to the UK! :D

They seem to be planning to trial in California first.

Anyone heard when they might send some over here?

Also, what is the battery technology? Anyone know more? I guess it is a closely guarded secret - they mention ferrous batteries in the video...?
