Another Chinese company jumps on the EV supercar bandwagon

The Beijing Motor Show is right around the corner it and appears the Beijing Automotive Industry Corporation (BAIC) wants to make a big splash at this year's event as the company's supercar concept has leaked to the web.

Looking sleek and stylish, the unnamed concept has a bold design which is sure to draw plenty of attention.  Details haven't been released but the pictures show the model has a sporty front fascia, a ventilated hood, and aggressive side skirts.  Moving further back, there's a rakish windscreen, lightweight wheels, and scissor doors with flush-mounted handles.  Other highlights include a sporty roofline, slender taillights, and a relatively small rear spoiler.

Citing reports out of China, Autocar says the concept will have an electric powertrain that will enable the car to accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in less than three seconds before hitting a top speed of 162 mph.   Rumors also suggest the concept will have a range of up to 186 miles on a single charge.

Little else is known about the car but it will reportedly have three different driving modes including Economy, Comfort, and Race.  Not much is known about the modes but each has its own ground clearance which ranges from 4.7 inches in Economy mode to 3.1 inches in Race mode.
