Fun with an Electric Vehicle: 56 HP
Electric cars have often been regarded as large, ponderous and dull creations designed purely for sustainability. The popular perception has been that they lack the dynamic thrill of conventional sports vehicles. But the Carice TC2 electric car, hailing from the Netherlands, is challenging these stereotypes. Coming in at 1300 lbs (590 kg) in its essential make-up, this model demonstrates that driving pleasure and ecological consciousness can work together.
Featured in one of Fully Charged’s most recent YouTube videos, that specialized motorcar captivates with a design inspired by renowned sports cars from the past, such as the iconic Porsche 550 Spyder. Yet what makes this version stand out is it’s unique construction, it’s not a modification or assembled kit, it’s been artistically crafted from the ground up, bringing together classic style and cutting-edge technology.
Beneath its stylish cover, the TC2 conceals a powerful electric engine. You might anticipate immense power to be released onto its wheels, but in reality the TC2 is outfitted with a 56 horsepowered rear-mounted electric motor. Supplying energy to the vehicle is a 31.5-kilowatt-hour battery pack, which gives the car the potential for as much as 186 miles on one charge.
The TC2 contains no power-steering, anti-lock brakes, traction control, or any of the beeping security systems found in today’s automobiles. Although 0-60 times may not matter here, the car is still zippy and can elicit laughter from those who enjoy lightweight and agile sports cars.
