Renovo Coupe Is The First “All-Electric American Supercar.”


If you’ve been waiting for a worthy competition for Tesla’s electric cars, then Renovo just unveiled its Renovo Coupe. Renovo calls the supercar  the first “all-electric American supercar.” The all-electric 2015 Renovo Coupe may fool you with its Shelby CSX9000 chassis, but what’s under the hood is what has auto-enthusiast wish they could head to the bank and clear their life savings. The Renovo Coupe is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack and direct-drive twin sequential axial flux motors that is capable of pushing out 500 horsepower and 1,000 pound-feet of torque. The company says that the Renovo Coupe is able to go from zero to 60 in under 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of over 120 miles per hour. At 3.4 seconds, it puts it ahead of the SP:01 and Tesla Roadster’s 3.7 seconds and most exotic cars that run on gas . The Eco-friendly Shelby Daytona look-alike can go 100 miles on a charge, and it’s capable of fast charging in just 30mins with a fast charger, or five hours at a standard Level 2 charger. The Renovo Coupe is a limited production vehicle coming in 2015, it’s priced at $529,000. The supercar will be on display at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this weekend. The Renovo says they are not new comers as they’ve been under cover since 2010, with one goal in mind, “to build the world’s most exciting vehicles.” See the Renovo Coupe in action below, see the source link after the break for more info.
