LAS VEGAS - June 18, 2011: When you look up in the sky and see a jet streaking across the sky faster than the speed of sound, what do you hear? Silence... until moments later when the air thunders as it tries to catch up. What does 170 miles per hour on the road sound like? Again silence... as you press down on the pedal and accelerate to 60 mph in just over three seconds, pushing faster and faster until that boom you hear is actually your heart catching up.

That's the power of the Inizio, the world's fastest all-electric supercar. Custom designed and built by hand by master engineers and fabricators, its sleek lines and styling are comfortable in the company of Lamborghini, Ferrari, Saleen and Koenigsegg. The Inizio's wide stance sits low and hugs the road while its spacious interior is unique in that it can fit a nearly seven feet tall driver. This speed is pure and clean. There's no exhaust emissions as there's no exhaust. This power comes from Its potent 290kW* AC Induction Motor and is fueled by the finest lithium ion battery and battery management system on the market, technology validated by Li-ion Motors winning the Progressive Automotive X prize, a prestigious competition created to inspire the innovation of tomorrow's fuel efficient transportation. The Inizio proves that clean can be mean. This supercar is available in three packages, fast (R), faster (RT), and fastest (RTX). How much can your heart stand? The Inizio proves that decibels don't equal power any more. There's a new sound of speed.
