Here's a couple shots of the Lightning GT from the UK. It will be available in 2009, but so far, not in the US.

It's got over 700 horsepower. Yet the fuel cost (electricity) is about 1/10th that of a comparable gasoline powered car.

An interesting part of the design is that the electric motors are attached directly to the wheels. There are no conventional brakes; the motors stop the car. One day many cars may use this design, meaning no brakes pads to wear out or replace.
