Black Current Electric VW Beetle Running on FlightPower Batteries
Brothers Sam and Oliver Young made it into electric drag racing history at Santa Pod Raceway in the UK with his 1600 pound electric VW bug, "Black Current." Sam piloted Black Current to a 9.82 @ 132.22 mph run followed by a 9.51 time at 135.65 mph. This makes the speedy electric bug the "World's First Street-Bodied Electric Car" to break into the 9's. A significant historic event for EVs and electric drag racing history. The current running through Black Current is provided by FlightPower Lithium Polymer® EVO Ultra Nano batteries which have thicker innerconnects then regular RC batteries to handle the extra current.!

There may be disquiet about its gentle rate of climb, but the electric car

BMW, along with Tesla, is doing what looked impossible a few years ago.
Electric cars are finally becoming desirable. Maybe it took the power of a
couple of premium brands to help them on the way. Or maybe it's the radical

stay. And if the BMW i3 is anything to go by, they're here to be enjoyed,
rather than endured.
