Lightning GT[edit]

The firm's first product, the eponymous Lightning GT, was unveiled in 2008.[1][2] It is based on an extant internal-combustion vehicle from Ronart Cars. It incorporates quick-charging lithium-titanate batteries from Altairnano into a body made from Superform aluminium. The Lightning GT employs rear wheel drive from two synchronous motors to accelerate to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) in less than 5 seconds and has an expected usable range of 150 miles (240 km) on a single battery charge. with a range extender battery pack option increasing this to 225 miles (360km).

The company is taking orders for 2012 delivery, with the first batch of 50 being secured now.[citation needed]
