    Out of my reach .. A nice 20K version with 100mile range, 4 seats , nothing fancy. For the Covid-20 world ...

    100 miles seems rough - you basically can't leave town. At 20K, that's a non-starter for most people.

    Re: Dyson takes the wraps off its cancelled N526 electric car

    I wonder why it costs 150K to build, that seems way out of line with the market. It looks fairly plain, especially on the inside, very different from more luxury models it would be competing with.

    Probably most of the cost is because of the battery that can handle 600 miles with a single charge.

    Which when Singapore is an island 30 miles wide seems really necessary

    Erm for a 7 seater car all electric £150k is not unreasonable. Taycan is not much less with half the range

    Note unreasonable doesn't mean people will buy it...

    2.5 tons and 600 mile range? I'm calling BS on that.

    Look up "solid state battery"

    Then understand how both the 600 mile range is possible and that the car was never commercially viable at the same time.

    Yup google solid state battery some interesting info out there.
    Batteries are very very heavy - a lot more than an internal combustion engine for sure. The battery will be a high percentage of the weight.
    2.5 tons isn't that heavy for a modern car either. 2020 range rovers, for example, are around 3 tons

    Well, that electric car already exists with the new Volkswagen e-Up - 160 miles range, 4 seats and a price of approx. £20,000

    Indeed - missus is huge VW fangirl but her friends in the dealer are saying 100km not miles is more like the range in actual use.

    Still might be good enough for some, but not us. And then charging points at the moment more appear broken than working. We also live in a flat so we can't have a charging point at home and nearest point is 2 miles away and the missus is disabled....
