    It'll probably be better at sprinting than at something long-distance.

    That was what I was thinking, unless they throw in a new battery ever time it needs one, and charge multiple batteries in the pits.

    If they're trying to enter the Le Mans 24h, I'm pretty sure they know what they're expecting, no one would waste money like that if they didn't think they have the potential to run a long distance race. The spec looks pretty impressive. And Peugeot, although not running full electric, already has a hybrid car ready for Le Mans.

    Well, not to put too fine a point on it, and I don't doubt that they've studied the issues and taken a very, very good shot at solving them, but still, the captain of the Titanic "knew" what to expect, too, for all the good it did him.
