In this introduction video of the Electric 818 car by EV West and 33 Machine, we take it out to Adams Motorsport Park for an initial shakedown. The car is powered by a HPEVS AC2-35 dual AC motor setup running at 144kW. The car has 16kWh of capacity, and can drive about 60-70 miles on it’s lightweight lithium ion battery pack. Recharging is done through an onboard 5000kW charger, and is public charge station compatible, making this street legal electric rocket ship a great way to run around town, and still have track-worthy performance. The current weight of the car is 1700 pounds, but it still needs just under 250 pounds of bodywork added to the car giving an estimated final weight of 1950 pounds.
