The usual thing in this flourishing electric world is to find great manufacturers trying to create the ideal car for many-Renault or General Motors - or creating an impressive vehicle in performance and technology-Tesla case. In the second group there are many Chinese or North American companies, less known, that want to take advantage of the new wave. But the truth is that European names that are born exclusively for this, we do not find too many.
What we teach you today is a small proof of what it is doing in Switzerland, a company called Classic Factory is shaping an electric 'supercar' with a spectacular design and performance to match. Founded in 2009, it is led by designer Robert Palm.
Right now Elextra is more concept than reality, but we are going to follow the steps very closely. What makes it special? Well, apart from the origin, we have a strange configuration for an extreme sports: four seats, four doors and total drive.
Among the expected performances there is some powerful promise, as the vehicle will be able to make 0 to 100 in less than 2.3 seconds. Electric propulsion has already taught us that this is one of its strong, street models like Model S do not have too much trouble playing with those figures.
I am not fair if I say that there are no more electric supercars in development in Europe, we have the Rimac Concept One, developed in Croatia, with an imposing look: four engines to take 1.088 hp and 355 kilometers per hour.
Returning to our protagonist, the electric supercar will be really created in Stuttgart, with the idea of putting in circulation only 100 units, which gives us an idea that it will be a luxury product, very exclusive. More 'big' companies like Faraday or Lucid are creating something similar, but their sales volumes are expected to be higher.
The interesting thing from our point of view is that there is a desire to do things beyond China and Silicon Valley . The next stop on the way we have at the 'Geneva Motor Show 2017' that starts in a few weeks, there we will have at our disposal the first prototypes.
