Chinese company Techrules plugs electric supercar
THE first Chinese-made electric supercar is being showcased at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show.
The car, designed and produced by Techrules, has 1,000hp, accelerates from 0 to 100kmh in 3sec, and a top speed of 354kmh.
Jin Xinzhong, founder of Techrules, said designers tackled the problem of range that currently limits electric vehicles. The total range is projected to be 150km.
"The range-extending electric vehicle can achieve 2,000km with 80 litres of fuel, which shows its efficiency.
"It is environmentally-friendly, as its emissions are multiple times lower than combustion engine vehicles on the market today."
There are plans to begin mass-producing cars that carry the technology. It was previously tested in London and will continue to go through tests.
