World's First Electric Supercar Taking Pre-Orders and Going Into Production

Li-Ion won 2.5 million dollars in the the 2010 Automotive X-Prize for their work on their Wave II vehicle. Now, according to Gizmag, they're using the money to bring the Wave II and the Inzio to market. The Inizio has three models for sale at $139,000, $189,000 and $249,000, with the fastest Inizio model going from 0-60 in 3.4 seconds. It uses 12 batteries, comes equipped with two motors and charges in 8 hours.

The less able Wave II will sell for 39,000 and 49,000, with the more expensive model able to travel 200 miles on a single, seven-hour charge. Pre-orders for both cars will begin this month. If all goes to plan, the Inizio should begin shipping in July 2011, and the Wave II will arrive in December 2011. [Gizmag]
