Electric Westfield offers hope to car fans
So far the future for electric cars has looked boring (the Renault Kangoo van), expensive (Tesla Roadster) or both (Mitsubishi's iMiev.)
But hope is here in the form of this Westfield iRacer, which revealed its abilities at the Stoneleigh kit car show earlier this month.
The car is a prototype for a model that will form part of a one-make racing series in 2011, and has been touring around to show off the technical abilities of the car. Suffice to say it seems as though none of the little two-seater's agility has been sacrificed in the switch to electric power.
