EV Innovations unveils electric cars

EV Innovations unveils electric cars

We're at the New York International Auto Show today, and one of the first things that caught our eye was the Wave, a brand new plug-in electric car from EV Innovations (formerlyHybrid technologies). The car is meant to be an affordable electric vehicle for commuters — it can get up to 170 miles on a charge. It starts at $34,000. And though the version at the show is just a prototype, the company claims it's not a concept, and that you can order one online starting today.
But with a top speed of 80 mph, the Wave isn't going to win any races. That's why EV Innovations also introduced the Inizio EVS (red interior and render pictured below), an all-electric sports car with a top speed of 170 mph that can go from 0-60 in just 4 seconds. The Inizio EVS can go 200 miles on a charge. But these upgrades from the Wave don't come cheap—the sports car costs more than $100,000 more than the Wave, with a starting price of $139,000. If they work, these two should give the Tesla Roadster and Tesla Model S a run for their money, but we'd feel more confident in the company's claims if it had brought working models to the show.
