Follow-up: New Electric Car TEEWave AR1 Up And Close (Video)

When we showed you the so-called TEEWave AR1 last week, reactions were mixed, with some readers calling the latest electric car from Japan “pretty”, while others said it’s plain “ugly”. But now news site DigInfo TV has gone and shot a video of the vehicle, which not only shows the car in more detail but also provides more insight on its development and features.

To recap, the two-seat sports car (made by Japanese chemicals company Toray) uses carbon fiber reinforced plastic in several key parts (the frame, for example), which results in a weight of just 846kg (including the battery). The TEEWave AR1 reaches a top speed of 147km/h and offers a travel range of 185km.
