AC Propulsion's tZero: World's Fastest Electric Production Car

AC Propulsion's tZero is likely the first electric-powered car in production that could punk a Ferrari F355. With its 200hp, and a vertical torque "curve" (love those electric motors) that launches the featherweight from zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, the tZero certainly performs like a supercar.

Of course, at top speed, its range is probably best measured in meters (it reportedly can travel 300 miles on a charge at 60mph). Still, at $200,000, according to Forbes, it's in the price range of only those who can afford to have it trucked home if it runs out of juice. If you don't mind a decrease in performance, an "on-board" (outboard?) charger is available (see photo).
