Say Hello To The Leap LP-S01, A New Chinese Electric Sports Car

Electric sports cars are becoming increasingly common and in just a couple of days, a Chinese company dubbed Leap Motor will reveal its emission-free vehicle.

Dubbed the LP-S01 and previewed through a couple of teaser images, we can see that the vehicle will adopt a sleek two-door design that could turn out to be quite appealing to the eye.

In the front, we can see that the Leap Motor LP-S01 will have an aggressive hood design that flares up over the wheels, while the other image is slightly more revealing and provides a look at the LED taillights, the Jaguar F-Type-inspired hatch, glass roof and silver paintwork.

According to Car News China, the LP-S01 will be powered by a single electric motor delivering 170 hp and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque. This should allow for a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 6.9 seconds and an impressive range of 360 km (223 miles).

The car will be revealed in full on Friday.

      What’s nice? You can’t see anything and they will never build it, so why is it nice?

        It’s a concept, not a production model. What the hell is your problem?

      • Bash

        Because it looks nice Smith!

    Just what the world needs. Another failed EV sports car start up out of China. They will promise Nevada or Arizona tens of thousands of jobs and then disappear in 2 years.

    China is the largest, most profitable car market in the world; it has many internal reasons to promote electric vehicles (i.e., cut pollution is the major cities; to become a world technology leader, and enhance its image in the business community around the world). With the ability to manipulate rules and regulations to benefit EV’s, there should be no doubt that any maker – if supported by Beijing – will be successful. Remember that Warren Buffett invested in BYD just because of their battery and hybrid technology.

    And no, they don’t need a factory in Arizona or Nevada to do it… although if China (and Bob Lutz) happens to be right, Arizona or Nevada might wish they had.
