The all-new Echo series from Sierra Cars is making waves in the industry as it pushes the limits of electric car technology while staying true to the company's exclusivity. The story begins with the Echo Base, a true game-changer at just $39,000.
This stylish vehicle offers an exhilarating 0-60 mph sprint in just 5.5 seconds, reaching a top speed of 80 mph, thanks to its 18.6 kWh battery pack and a rear-mounted electric engine generating 150 hp and 165 lb-ft of torque.
The Echo Base isn't just about power, though; it also features a tough suspension system with Fox shocks and 15x7-inch Sparco wheels covered in 26x10-inch gravel rally tires.
The Echo R-Spec, a marvel with roots in rally and gymkhana, is making its way up the ranks. It has a powerful engine upgrade, producing 300 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Weight and cost go up to 1,500 pounds and $74,900, respectively, but you get the adrenaline rush of going faster than 100 miles per hour.
However, the Echo Block Edition is for the most devoted fans. This masterpiece is optimized for the legendary Pikes Peak race, and only seven of them will ever be produced at a price of $85,000 each. The updated powertrain produces 300 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque, making it a formidable opponent. The Block Edition can hit 120 mph at its top speed while still being very lightweight at 1,350 pounds.
Lucy Block put the limited edition to the test at Pikes Peak, where she finished in a respectable 47th place with a time of 11 minutes and 25.31 seconds. Although it lagged behind a Rivian R1T by a few seconds, a significant percentage of the earnings from this extraordinary machine will be donated to the Block family's charitable organization.
