Electric sports car goes on show


Electric cars have suffered from a rather dowdy reputation. The Lightning Car Company is hoping to change that with its electric sports car.

The company claims the Lightning can hit 60mph (97kmph) in under four seconds. Instead of one single motor, each wheel has its own.

Managing Director Chris Dell talks us through the technology and design that makes the car tick, at the British International Motor Show.
