Protoscar Lampo 2 Electric sportscar revealed (+video)

Protoscar Lampo 2 Electric sportscar revealed (+video)

Earlier this month, Swiss electric vehicle makers Protoscar showed a teaser of its new Lampo 2 electric sportscar, which is headed for the Geneva Motor Show. Now we’ve been given a whole series of images to gaze upon and it’s a funky little beast.

Based on General Motors’ Kappa platform, the Lampo 2 features some unique sheetmetal and a powertrain consisting of twin electric motors — one for each axle giving it all-wheel drive. It uses a large-capacity lithium ion battery pack and also solar cells mounted out back to help range.

Total combined output comes in at 408 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque, enough to get it to 100kph in around five seconds. It doesn’t have Tesla Roadster-slaying performance, and it certainly isn’t as attractive as the Roadster either.

Protoscar’s strongest feature is the Lampo 2’s recharging options, including one that offers up 100 kilometers of range after a 10 minute charge via an off-board DC rapid charger interface.

Check out images and a video of the Lampo 2 below.
