I love that they were able to actually drive it on public roads. Also that tidbit of the cruise control being able to go as high as 180 km/h even though the top speed is 160 is interesting

Is a top speed of 160 km/h strange? Seems odd for a German car... but maybe not for an EV. Does anyone know the top speed of, say, a Leaf or Bolt?

A lot of EVs top out around there or less because there is only one gear ratio. The software prevents the electric motor from over-spinning. I wonder if some day we will see multi-gear transmissions on performance EVs. 2020 Chevy Bolt top speed is 93 mph.

It's not that the top speed is strange. It's that in their car the cruise control could be set higher than the top speed.
