Electric Car Wins Infineon Performance Test
SONOMA (KRON) -- Most people think of electric cars as slow, ponderous things that you're lucky to do 35 mph in. Don't tell that to one man whose purely electric car outraced a Ferrari and Porsche at Infineon Raceway.
Ian Wright recently put his electric powered "Wrightspeed X-1" to the test at the same raceway where the rubber burns for NASCAR competitions. Wright says he believes eventually drivers will choose electric cars even over hybrids.
"If you measure the energy required to drive a mile and compare that to the energy use by the (Toyota) Prius, it's about three times better," Wright told KRON 4's Will Nordby.
