It is very interesting the niche car companies which debut the next hot green vehicle at auto shows. The latest case in point is one Exagon Motors, which is turning a lot of heads at the Paris Auto Show with its Furtive-eGT concept. At first glance, it has our computer screens melting as well.
Exagon Motors, according to Autoblog Green, heralds from a company known for developing electric race cars. Based upon the specifications of the Furtive-eGT, we can definitely see those touches in this car. This electric vehicle sports two Siemens electric motors, each of which provides output of 125 kW for around a total power equivalent of 340 hp at 5,000 to 10,000 rpm. Acceleration is really quick – 0 to 100 km/h in 3.6 s – and the Furtive-eGT can hit 287 km/h in race track conditions. It has a constant torque of 480 Nm from 0 to 5,000 rpm, and standard driving range goes up to 406 km in electric-only mode. This can be extended up to 807 km with optional technology consisting of “a small combustion engine with a low cylinder capacity which charges the batteries when they have reached the limit of their autonomy.”
Though not much else was provided in details, including price (if you even have to ask), Exagon did have this to say of its 2+2 electric sports car concept. “Such high performance is achieved in near-silence, with only the air flow to be heard, heightening the sensations experienced while driving. This is more than just impressive figures, it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.” Guess that about says it all for this vehicle, huh?
