As expected, Venturi unveiled today at the Paris Motor Show the America Concept, a new car that combines the values of traditional America with those resulting from new awareness of ecological issues. The electric car is powered nu the same engine found on the Venturi Fetish and delivering a 300 hp (+220 kW) and 380 Nm of torque.
The car has a new 54 kWh battery pack (with LIV-10 Lithium Ion Polymer batteries) whose electronics (Battery Management System) have been entrusted to Ventec, the leader in the field.
Venturi America has a total range of up to 300 km, and can be recharged via any standard socket or fast charge terminals. According to the manufacturer, the car has the first chassis specifically designed to house a large volume of batteries, while the carbon monocoque provides exceptional protection for its occupants.
The body is completed by two deformable cells positioned at the front and the rear of the car. This means that the battery pack is secured in case of an accident.
Venturi America is described by the manufacturer as being both an sports car and an all-terrain leisure vehicle, a so-called mix between the mentioned segments. Apparently, electric buggy is the perfect term that describes the vehicle.
People will always want a car that is comfortable to drive whether it is through the narrow mountain roads of Europe, the secondary highway network in the U.S, or on the fast tracks. The Venturi ADN offers a different type of driving pleasure with its acceleration, gliding, and precision.
Driving behind the wheel of this refined and hi-tech sports car is indeed a treat as there is the absence of noise and it provides a panoramic field of vision resulting in total freedom.
The AMERICA concept meanwhile shows a modern sculpture when it comes to movement considering that it shows sophistication while still being simple and charged with emotion. Each of the curves has the main purpose of giving not just visual pleasure but a tactile kind of impact as well.
