This "Supercars of the Future" video features the visually stunning electric Renovo Coupe, as well as the BMW i8 & i3.

The main focus of the video is the Renovo, a remarkable electric coupe with impressive stats:

  • 0-60 mph takes less than 3.4 seconds
  • Price of $529,000
  • Limited production and sales scheduled to start in 2015
  • Two electric motors put out 1000 ft-lbs of torque & 500 HP
Per Renovo:

“The Coupe sets a benchmark 0-60 time of just 3.4 seconds, the fastest of any production rear-wheel drive electric vehicle. The car’s massive 1,000 foot-pounds of torque is available immediately from a dead stop and delivers perfectly linear acceleration that is unlike any car on the road today.”

“The mid-mounted twin sequential axial-flux motors deliver both power and efficiency, with optimized energy mappings for a wide range of driving conditions. When run at full throttle, the motors produce over 500 horsepower. More importantly, the drivetrain ramps to full power in just 37 milliseconds—about ten times faster than the blink of an eye—and further redefines how a performance vehicle can respond to the commands of the driver.”

“The Coupe’s incredible performance is made possible by the patent-pending battery technology developed by the Renovo team. Multiple separate battery enclosures enable a performance-oriented weight distribution and minimize chassis volume requirements. The Renovo Motors drivetrain is less than 40% of the total weight of the car, and yet delivers the highest peak power in its class.”

“The on-road performance is matched by a fast-charge system that can refill the batteries in just 30 minutes and maintains compatibility with a wide range of standard Level 2 charge systems. At the track, the Coupe can be charged between run sessions, offering the first true circuit-ready EV.”
