Nice video!

I timed it and got 9sec flat in drive then about .4sec less with the manual CVT.

Think a manual could dip into the 7's? I'll have to try one day. 7's isn't too shabby at all for what it is!

The magazines got the MT in the 7.2 - 7.5 secs range... :D
I haven't tried it yet. ;)

wow...that's pretty good for this little car, but it's faster than anything I've read on line. My nieghbor who is the biggest car buff I know. Owns a Benz AMG, Ford Taurus SHO, Lincoln MK-S, Marauder, the new sport Caddy....the list goes on... Hecame over to check out the Zuke and loves it, said it's going to hold it's value really well and that he hears and reads nothing but rave stuff about it. He thinks sales in 2011 2012 for the car is going to be outstanding.

It mentions street start 5-60MPH is that without the use of a drag strip and the sticy crap they lay down at the first 60ft? My CVT can't spin the wheels so that must be a manual huh?

A few things look odd. 5-60 in 8.0 sec, but only 7.2 second 0-60. I have seen the 0-60 numbers before, and they look good, but I would have thought the 5-60 would have been slightly lower (unless a really fat guy did the 5-60 times - lol).

Also, the 1/4 mile times look awfully slow. Up to 60 - only 7.2 seconds. Then double that time+ for only 28 mph more. Take another look at the CD numbers.

The 0-60 times are faster cause in a manual you get to drop the clutch. The 5-60 times roling start you just get to mash the pedal. Make sense?
