Electric cars are perceived as heavy, big, and boring machines focused on sustainability. The prevailing stereotype suggests that electric vehicles lack the thrill and excitement that comes with traditional sports cars. However, the Carice TC2, an electric sports car hailing from the Netherlands, shatters these preconceptions. Weighing in at a mere 1,300 pounds (590 kilograms) in base form, the TC2 proves that driving pleasure and environmental consciousness can coexist.

That niche machine is featured in one of Fully Charged’s latest episodes on YouTube, and the design draws inspiration from iconic sports cars of the past, notably the classic Porsche 550 Spyder. However, what sets the TC2 apart is that it is not a restomod or a kit car – this electric sports car is meticulously designed and built from the ground up, embodying a fusion of classic aesthetics and modern ingenuity.

Beneath the sleek exterior lies an electric powertrain. You're probably expecting massive amounts of power to wheels, but the truth is that the TC2 has a rear-mounted electric motor with just 56 horsepower. A 31.5-kilowatt-hour battery pack provides electric energy, which is enough for a range of up to 186 miles on a single charge.

There's no power steering, no ABS, no brake assist of any kind, no traction control, and no beeping safety systems. 0-60 time? No one really cares since the TC2 is more about the pure joy of driving a lightweight and nimble sports car. Let’s just say it’s quick enough to make you giggle.
