Below we want to share about DODGE CIRCUIT EV, an all-electric performance sports car.
No matter how much Chrysler tries to change up its Dodge EV, the fact remains that the car is essentially a Lotus Europa with Dodge badging. In an effort to make the vehicle more Dodge-like, Chrysler is bringing back the Dodge EV under a new name – Dodge Circuit EV – with a couple of its own cosmetic additions.
It has been the beneficiary of cross-hair nose job that is actually an improvement over the Lotus original
The Dodge Circuit EV design screams pure sports car from every angle. The Dodge Circuit EV’s profile demonstrates perfect proportions for balanced handling, placing the driver and passenger midway along the wheelbase. At the front of the vehicle, the distinctive Dodge crosshair grille splits the wind, sending it over the long, low hood and cleanly over the windshield and cockpit. The body sides feature a deep scallop, providing visual depth and also a functional rear-brake air duct. At the rear, the functional elements blend with design to create a uniform finish.
“The exterior styling of the Dodge Circuit EV mates bold Dodge styling to the no-compromise performance attributes of an all-electric performance sports car,” said Ralph Gilles, Vice President – Design, Chrysler LLC
Working with the latest advanced lithium-ion battery technology, the Dodge Circuit EV has a driving range of 150 to 200 miles between charges – more than triple the average daily commute of most consumers. Recharging the vehicle is a simple one-step process: plugging into a standard 110-volt household outlet. The recharge time can be cut in half by using a typical 220-volt household appliance power outlet.
