Saleen Planning EV Based on Tesla Model SJanuary 31st, 2014
Saleen is well known for its powerful, high performance Mustang, Challenger and Camaro variants, but not every car they drive is a gas guzzler. In fact, they’re now working on a high-end pure electric vehicle which will be based on the already impressive Tesla Model S.
The company hasn’t revealed any details of the car other than CEO Steve Saleen’s statement: “I fully intend to produce one of the most compelling Teslas to ever hit the roadway.”
We’re assuming that whatever they come up with will include a blend of aerodynamic and mechanical modifications, though we’re not sure if you can really push the motors in a Model S beyond their current limits. Either way, we’re excited to see what Saleen has up their sleeves.
