Ha ha. If the battery and drivetrain tech had existed about 10 or 15 years ago, it might have been built by Brammo.

As you all know, Brammo built the Ariel Atom 2 under license from 2005 until 2007 before switching to motorcycles.  I don't understand why there couldn't be a parallel project going on for an Ariel EV but I guess all the resources were tied up in the Enertia and then the Empulse.  This even predated the Tesla roadster which was the EV game changer.
