Back in 2009, there was the first-generation Tesla Roadster and then the Dodge Circuit EV, a two-passenger, rear-wheel-drive, all-electric sports car shown that debuted at the North American International Auto Show. It was based on the Lotus Europa S, and combined a lithium-ion battery pack with a 200-kilowatt electric motor producing 268 hp and 480 lb⋅ft of torque.



Dodge stated that the Dodge EV had a driving range of 150 to 200 miles on a full charge, which is comparable to the range and performance of the all-electric Tesla Roadster that was built on the same chassis. It could be recharged in eight hours using a standard 110-volt outlet, or in only four hours using a 220-volt outlet. The automaker initially planned to bring this vehicle to the market the United States by 2010, but in November, 2009 Fiat SpA disbanded Chrysler’s ENVI electric car division and dropped its models from future product plans.
