The small Swiss design company Protoscar, which employs only 14 staffs, has come up with an electric roadster concept in carbon fiber composite called the Lampo which they will produce in 2010. The Lampo was showcased at the Geneva event this week featuring a twin-motor design and a power yield of 268hp (199kW) and maximum torque of 440Nm.
This particular design permits a motor to propel each axle, which consequently offer FWD capability. A range of 120 miles (200 kilometers) is provided by a 32kWh battery which can be charged by a maximum of 12 hours in a standard 240V and 10-16amp European household power outlet.
The Lampo also comes with an intelligent charging system that allows the owner to choose the key criteria for performance: briefest charge time, maximum charge output, and the desire total level of charge desired in a given period of time. So, a quick charge will proportionately shorted range.
The Lampo is intended to accommodate two passengers, has an acceleration rate of 0-100km/h in five seconds and attain a maximum speed of 200km/h. Power is derived from lithium-ion batteries, which by itself already weighs 140kg.
Under the Lampo’s carbon fiber composite bodywork is a full tubular steel chassis 4.315 meters long. Having worked with Daimler, GM, Nissan and Rinspeed, Protoscar is currently dedicated in designing eco-friendly cars.
