For this week’s episode of our weekly video series Green Overdrive we bring you an up close look at Wrightspeed’s electric prototype high performance race car the X1! Wrightspeed’s founder Ian Wright, one of the original founding members of electric car maker Tesla, built the prototype as a way to develop hybrid drive train tech for race car makers and one day truck manufacturers. Watch Wright pass a Tesla Roadster and show us the ins and outs of the X1, which he says he commonly drives his kids to school in. Check out all our episodes of Green Overdrive here.
