For those who don't know, Lampo 2 is an electric demonstration sports car developed by Swedish manufacturer Protoscar. Comparing it to the first version unveiled back in 2009 at the Geneva Motor Show, the new version has been further optimized in order to reach a world-class energy consumption of less than 100Wh/km-ton under real conditions.
Also, according to the manufacturer, the Lampo 2 comes with quick-charging capability (up to 100 km range extension in just 10 minutes charging time).
As a premiere, the new Lampo 2 is equipped with 4 different charging modes such as: standard single-phase with up to 3,3kW on board charger for typical overnight home-charge; control-pilot equipped and (EDF provided) PLC single-phase with 6,6kW on board charger typical for public charging;standard three-phase 9,9kW on board charger typical for charging at industrialplugs (fleet-owners);an interface for DC fast charging (able to transmit a max. power of 80kW), where up to 100km of additional range can be charged within just 10 minutes, by an off-board system.
The Lampo 2 carries two electric motors (allowing it to operate as a four-wheel drive with variable torque between front and rear axle for optimal handling, safety and efficiency), capable to deliver a total output of 300 kW (equivalent to 408 HP), 640 Nm (over 50% more than its predecessor!) and over 30 kWh of Lithium-Ion battery capacity. With these numbers it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5 seconds, has a top speed of 200 km/h and a total range of 200 km.
At the Geneva Motor Show, Protoscar plans to unveil the LAMPO2 along with a number of charging infrastructure solutions like a smart home charge device developed with ALPIQ; a quick-charging station developed with ABB and Brusa; and the E-TOTEM public charging station.
This electric sports car prototype underscores the reality that could really be a solution for all types of vehicles, even premium cars, which are usually the recipient of the newest and innovative technologies. Interestingly, the first LAMPO has already logged over 10,000 km on roads and tracks across Europe.
LAMPO2 will be joining its predecessor in its job as a prototype made for practical demonstrations and testing. In fact, Protoscar is intending to employ the LAMPO2 to assess the possibility of developing an advanced electric cabriolet for small-scale production. Protoscar’s assessment is expected to include talks with potential industrial and financial partners as well as the preferences of potential clients.
