kyberz ‘eRod’ puts the thrills from a racetrack plus electric power on the road




the manufacturer of electric automobiles, kyberz switzerland, have created the ‘eRod’, an electric roadster which they say has been reduced to the raw essentials, bringing the racetrack to the road. it may not have an entertainment system boasting the latest technology, however, it can provide the power and acceleration that users will be so concentrated they needn’t notice.

customers can either purchase a vehicle assembled, or if somebody has the passion for building, the frame plus components can be bought seperately.
