The Voltic was the first highway-capable, all-electric sports car on the market in the United States. Boasts a battery life shorter than your iFruit phone so that you can still call a cab home when you grind to a halt in the middle of nowhere.

Nope. It's an Elise.

I'd say 2008 Rinspeed sQuba, it seems to be closer one, but you can't drive in water in actual game

You know about the event that requires driving the longest distance without crashing? If my estimations are correct, when this baby hits 88 mph in reverse, youre going to win that challenge. (Yeah, poor pun was said)

Now seriously, this car is indeed very quick on reverse, nearly same speed as forward. I have worst textures, I couldnt really tell what speed was that, but my estimate is something over 70 mph.

Everyone knows about tesla's coil which makes the GTA5 manufacter "coil" an easy giveaway that the voltic is a tesla not lotus.however do we base our cars here on how they look or what they are supposed to be in GTA logic because in that case the Grotti Carbonizzare should be a Ferrari California. The car is definitely supposed to be a tesla (GTA logic) but looks like an Elise. However in this case I don't think it matters because there is strong relation between the two cars.
Edit: I hope they add a tesla model S parody :D

I honestly think that while the name is definitely a parody of Tesla, the brand itself (minus it's weapons division) is more of a general representation of American start up manufacturers (Tesla and Local Motors being prime examples of such), minus Fisker, which is represented by Hijak.

Coil is obviously Tesla, since a Tesla Coil is a real scientific instrument.

The car specs are a match to the tesla but visually the car looks almost exactly like a Elise. After all the tesla uses the Elise chassis. However Coil is a parody.....of something considering the brawler is Local motors rally fighter. The voltic is a lotus/tesla hybrid. I suggest we wait for R* to provide us with a new coil car because till this day "coil" is not really a clear parody of a real company especially after coil brawler was introduced

Love this car. It always seems driving an EV in games fixes all the drawbacks with fossil fuel powered ones. No noise, no gear shifting, instant torque. It's a shame they didn't make a Model S parody, however. As much as I love a fun, lightweight sports car like this, I usually prefer driving four-door sedans. I'm weird :p

This is a Tesla Roadster (Coil) is the electric version

2014-05-09 08:07
No it isn't. Both ends of the car are almost identical to the facelifted Lotus Elise, which is rare in a GTA car.

2014-05-08 23:38
It's quite obviously meant to be a Tesla :l

Forget about him. It's his problem, not ours. He's obviously a hypocrite and got what was coming to him.

and this is an email from him to me:

"i get banned for insulting trolls that allowed to rejoin multiple times with no repercussions

where is the logic in that
kindly tell me
but whatevs i can make a new acc. whenever i want via the steam
browser tho and continue exposing you for the logic-lacking admin you
truly are.
also btw i prank called lantz09's house and legit talked to him, said
I was you(even used your real name, don't ask how i know lol), had a
fake stereotypical French accent going on and all, and said i'd hack
his account if he ever set foot on there again. umad?"

I don't understand what he want... He doesn't understand that we weren't here to insult someone, troll or not troll...
I prefer let this mail here to let see who he is really.

Thanks, That was very helpful. A very few of these new cars I have never heard about and I will always rely on Google in order for me to look up a car that I have never heard about.

I think it's more of a Tesla Roadster since this one supposed to be that hybrid sports car.

The Tesla Roadster is based on the Lotus Elise, so the look of the Elise for the electric car is logical. There is the Detroit Electric SP:01 that\'s also based on the Lotus Elise and looks a lot more like it than the Tesla:


2013-08-14 12:59
Oh, and the company may also make some more Tesla based vehicles, that might explain the name.

2013-08-13 21:26
It may be electric, but the body looks like almost exact copy of Lotus Elise.

Now having seen the front and rear, plus the name and manufacturer, I'm starting to think this is a Tesla Roadster with a Lotus nose.

I mean, look at the manufacturer, Coil, and it's logo...obvious parody of Tesla Motors and referencing the Tesla coil.

The name, Voltic, also seems to lean towards the Tesla as well. I mean, seriously...VOLTic...

There's also the blue one, seen at rockstar's own site, which honestly makees it look more like a mid engine Porsche if anything, like a Carrera.

New shot of it jumping off a highway bridge (ala Plumber's Skyway from GTA IV).

Looks more like the Hennessey Venom GT but as short as the Elise.
So basically it's a Lotus Elise with a little different body and lights.

Based on the front end, it's a pre-facelifted Type M117 (2002-09) with the indicator light moved to the primary headlight housing.

Replaced the Elise? No way is the Evora an Elise/Exige replacement. The Evora is in a totally different class than the Elise. The Elise is sort of in a class of it's own, and primarily I4 powered, while the Evora is V6, in the same class as the Porsche Cayman.

*Shrugs* What the guys kept telling me, however I still see the Elises at the Lotus dealer up here, so yeah.

Ever since it came out, it's replaced the Elise, but you don't see much driving around in the states.
