The sleek two-seater has four onboard motors and four individual gearboxes, capable of delivering 1 megawatt of power to the wheels. For speed freaks, that means 0 to 100KPH (62MPH) in 2.7 seconds. It will also do 0 to 200KPH (124MPH) in 7.1 seconds and 300KPH (186MPH) in 15.9 seconds. The EP9 can't, however, complete a quarter mile stretch in under 10 seconds (at 10.1 seconds, it's pretty close however.)
