Artega Comes Back To Life With Electric Scalo Coupe & Karo Quad Bike

The Artega saga has taken yet another twist, as the German maker was resurrected at the Frankfurt Auto Show where it introduced a new electric line-up.

First up is the new Artega Scalo, a pure-electric sports car designed as a direct successor to the Artega GT, that will be available in a small series of twelve exclusive units built to order.

Powering the curvy Scalo that tips the scales at 1,585 kg / 3,495 lbs are two two Voltabox high-performance electrical motors with a total output of 402hp (300 kW) or 516hp (385kW) for up to 2 seconds, and peak torque of 779Nm (575 ft-lb), which push it to 60mph (96km/h) in 3.6 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h (155mph).

A 37kWh lithium-ion battery is claimed to offer a driving range of up to 402 kilometers or 250 miles. With a household socket, it takes about 10 hours to charge the battery, but an available 64 kW DC quick charger can reportedly slash that time to less than an hour.

Also making its world premiere in Frankfurt is the Artega Karo, a study for an electric quad-bike that is being prepared for series production.

It will be available in at least three versions, including a basic model with 4kW or 5hp and a limited top speed of 45km/h (28mph) for teenagers who get their AM driver’s license in Germany at the age of 16.

For the big boys and girls, the Karo will offer two grown-up versions, a 15kW / 20hp iteration with a top speed of 80km/h (50mph) and a 38kW / 51hp version that can hit 80km/h (50mph) in under 5 seconds topping out at 105km/h (65mph).
