PG Elektrus

a decidedly more eccentric (or is electric?)  approach to the electric car market; the Eleketrus is a Lotus-based EV in the works from German PG. After having earned its by primarily producing carbon-fiber bicycles, the company has decided to a stab at building an electric car with the PG Elektrus, marking its foray into the growing sports car market.

If mo’ money equates to mo’ problems, the opposite hold true? sadly that doesn’t to be the case with Fisker and the company’s beleaguered Karma plug-in hybrid. But we digress, and Fisker’s very public with finances and the Karma’s mechanical issues what we in the Karma is an attractive plug-in just enough style and to make it one of the better looking hybrids today.

Why else Justin Bieber drive right?

For those still with the Karma, the sporty utilizes both a gasoline and an electric motor. The electric of Karma consists of two 120 kW electric that derive power a 20 kWh lithium-ion battery.
