This will be an interesting race to follow.

I just quote some lines, you can read the whole article at

The E-Runner Concept_One is powered by four independent electric motors with total power of over 1.1 MW (1,475 hp).
“We measured 0-100 km/h in 2.2 seconds,” said Rimac founder and CEO Mate Rimac. “200 km/h comes in 5.4 seconds from a standstill.
The Pikes Peak hill climb is 19.9 km long, and ends up at 4,301 m above sea level. Gas engines begin to starve for oxygen at that altitude, and the power of the engine can decrease as much as 40 percent. Rimac helpfully points out that electric motors need no oxygen.

Just imagine what else that kind of motor can be used for once the battery longevity is perfected.. imagine a hilux with that kind of power..

When energy sources like thorium and nuclear fusion are perfected(hopefully in our lifetime) the world will change.

So the EV's took first and second place.

Who said electrical cars are a pipe dream?
