Japan: Japanese Electric Car Startup Explains Why Its Cars Look So Wacky

We all know that most electric cars are more energy efficient than their gasoline counterparts, but just how do you improve on the limited range most electric cars have?

For some automakers like BMW, the answer lies in making an electric car as lightweight as possible. For others, the answer is to make the battery pack as large as possible.

But for Japanese startup electric car firm SIM-Drive Corp., the answer lay in redesigning the humble automobile, making it as aerodynamic as possible.

The result?

The SIM-LEI, a bizarre-looking electric car powered by four, 65 kilowatt in-wheel motors which SIM-Drive Corp. plans to put into production in the next two years.
