Lampo2 Electric Sports Car Charges And Drives Very Fast

A new prototype green friendly sports car set to be unveiled at the Geneva Auto Show in March will offer a variety of features to make it even more eco-focused than a previous model introduced last year by the same manufacturer. The Lampo2 is its name and, among other things, it boasts a very quick charge time for its electric motor and impressive performance numbers like five seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h, 200 km/h of max. speed and a range of over 200 km.

The Lampo2, as presented by Swiss manufacturer Protoscar, can reportedly charge enough in up to 10 minutes to travel a range of up to 100 km. This is just one of four charging modes this electric vehicle can support, with the other three including your typical overnight charge in one’s garage. The super fast charge mode requires use of the interface for DC fast charging, said to be able to transmit a maximum power of 80 kW.

The Lampo2, which will be used for “practical demonstrations and testing,” will be evaluated by its maker for some type of possible small scale production (at least as a model to work off of). Features of this electric car include “two electric motors (allowing it to operate as a four-wheel drive with variabletorque between front and rear axle for optimal handling, safety and efficiency) with a totaloutput of 260 kW (equivalent to 350 HP), 600 Nm (50% more than its predecessor!) and over 30 kWh of Lithium-Ion battery capacity.”
