Electric X1 beats Ferrari and Porche GT

Wrightspeed is an early stage Silicon Valley based startup using ‘ultra clean technology’ to produce highly energy efficient performance cars.
Wrightspeed has constructed a proof-of-concept prototype, the X1, which has demonstrated 0-60mph in ~ 3 seconds, and an energy consumption equivalent to 170mpg. The X1 prototype proves that extreme performance vehicles can also be extremely efficient – if they use advanced technology drivetrains.


• 0-60 ~ 3.0 seconds
• Standing quarter mile ~11.5 seconds
• Top speed 112mph (electronically limited)
• Range >100 miles in urban use
• Charger: onboard conductive. Input 100-250V 50 or 60 Hz. Current: user adjustable up to 80A
• Energy consumption 200 WHr/mile in urban use, equivalent to 170 mpg (33,705 WHr/gallon)
