Dodge ZEO: electric concept vehicle

Dodge ZEO

Dodge has released a new electric concept vehicle, the ZEO. According to the company’s press release:

The advanced propulsion system powering the Dodge ZEO concept is electric-only with a 64 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack capable of at least 250 miles.

Resting in a rear-wheel drive layout, Dodge ZEO’s 200 kilowatt (268 horsepower) single-electric motor contributes to a 0-60 mph time in less than six seconds — which rivals Chrysler’s famed HEMI powerplant.

I, for one, am a big fan of electric vehicles…the more, the merrier. Throw an electric muscle car into the mix…how can you go wrong?

I also appreciate it when companies push the design envelope (unlike the Prius or Civic hybrids) as Dodge has done here (fully appreciating that this is a concept and those are production vehicles).
