The World’s First All-Electric Supercar

The Renovo coupe is sleek, fast and all-electric. That’s 0-60 in just 3.4 seconds and a full charge in 30 minutes.

Oh, and did we mention it’s an American automobile? Yeah.

This may be an electric car, but the power it produces is bordering on Bugatti Veyron territory. The Coupe uses twin sequential axial-flux electric motors sending power to the rear wheels of the car (note that the car has no forward gear ratios, just drive and reverse), with the motor producing an astounding 500+ horsepower combined with 1000 lb-ft of torque. With instantaneous power delivery, the Coupe will go from 0 to 60 mph in the 3.4 seconds, with a top speed of 120 mph.
