Electric-vehicles doohicky builder Hybrid Technologies is set to launch the previously announced all-electric version of the Mullen L1X-75 supercar. It's called the L1X-75 GT, and it's a carbon-fiber-bodied version of the V8 Mullen, called out by Forbes as the seventh fastest car in the US, a designation shared among the Saleen S7 and Dodge Viper. Hybrid Technologies's propulsion system, fed by a lithium battery — the company says — is "aimed at surpassing current electric sports cars," not mentioning the high-profile Tesla sports car by name (hint hint). Hybrid Technologies expects to market the $125,000 EV in Japan, the United Arab Emirates and the US. In other news, all-electric track day is coming up any time now.
