Claiming that you can put down nearly 1,000 HP to go with a NEDC range of 311 miles (500 km) is no small thing, even in today’s ever growing electrified landscape.
Yet that’s exactly what China’s LVCHI Auto Venere promises, in a package that is said to be nearly production-ready. Unfortunately we don’t have a production date, pricing or any sort of market information.
Making the Venere go really really fast is a two-electric motor setup on each axle, powered by a 100 kWh lithium-ion battery pack to the tune of 992 HP. The car is expected to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in under three seconds and max out north of 250 km/h (155 mph).
At 5,118 mm (16.8 ft) in length, it’s just shy of an S-Class, although bigger than a Tesla Model S, which is obviously a more appropriate rival since it too is fully electric.
Unlike the Tesla, the LVCHI Venere is a little quirkier when it comes to its design. The front end works, don’t get us wrong – it looks like a Porsche and a Tesla had a baby. The rear however? That might take a little more getting used to, although it’s not necessarily ugly.
The car’s overall form factor is sleek and that tends to work for most people. As for the interior, it features a four-seat layout, a dual-tone white on blue theme, carbon fiber inserts and possibly no physical buttons.
