power: torque X rpm, now can you tell me how is responsible for acceleration and velocities?!

Win. Provided the battery packs last.
electric engines have tons of torque: is any kind of electric car really fun to drive? no
beside fuel economy (and different prices), who is going to buy a Tesla and not an Exige/Elise? no one.

torque doesn't win. lightweight owns everything.

if torque wins, buy this, the yellow one of course
