OSCar eO at Dakar 2012ar

The OSCar eO is the world’s first electric car to compete (and more importantly finish) in three of the world’s toughest off-road rallies covering a total of 18,000 km — “Dakar” and “Silk Way Rally” in 2012, and the “Africa Eco Race” in 2013.

It certainly looks fantastic and has a specification to match it’s credentials.  More pictures are available on the eO flickr page here.
