Do Electric Cars need radiators?

No, of course they don't, so that iconic Grill is superfluous

Difficult to say. You would need to be seriously rich to afford a car with an estimated price tag of £600,000. As the article says, there are customers with that amount of money to spend, but to put a vehicle like that into production would require a fairly healthy order book.

I have friends who live very near to the Goodwood factory, and I'm sure they'll see this car gliding along the country lanes over the next few months. Seeing it is about as close as the and most of us will ever get however.

Yes they do - its part of the air-conditioning!

If that particular Roller has Air Con as well then its range will be about .05 mile per charge.
Or it will have a trailer with a spare battery.

It's a design exercise -

Surely the date 1st of April should have roused your suspicions.

I don't see the point in buying just the one.

Two as a minimum to ensure one is always fully charged and available.

It might be like an eletric drill - just slip out the battery and plug in a charged one!
