looks like a high school science project.
The didn't even cover the PCBs on the batteries... I wonder how safe it would be in a front end collision/rain. They even took off the stock weatherstripping around the hood.

It's probably a salvage title. Given that it's the first E46 build, it's virtually a science experiment/prototype, for sure, and I'd imagine they picked up the cheapest chassis they could find.

EDIT: The headline of the article states it's a prototype.

I find that Valery Miftakhov guy sketchy. He seems to have his basic electric car knowledge at least, but EVERYTHING else is sketchy and lacking in good design/engineering/manufacturing.

If somebody just dropped an empty soda can in that engine bay, there would be one hell of a fire and explosion.
