BAIC’s Arcfox GT Stalks Geneva In Both Street And Track Spec With Up To 1,632HP

There’s a crazy number of all-electric vehicles present at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, from urban-friendly family cars to genuine hypercars that don’t require a sip of petrol in order to fire up whatever insanity lies underneath.

BAIC’s Arcfox-GT is one such car, powered by four electric motors generating a whooping 1,020 PS (1,005 HP / 750 kW). Thanks to its lightweight construction and staggering power output, the GT is able to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.59 seconds, which is Bugatti Chiron territory.

But wait, there’s more

The best part about the Arcfox GT is that there’s actually two of them. The “entry-level” model is the one you just read about. It’s called ‘Street Edition’ and it’s a big part of BAIC’s plan to assert itself outside of China.

However, customers looking for a more track-focused solution can opt for the flagship ‘Track Edition’ version of the GT, which you can see here rocking a very light shade of blue. It uses the latest Formula E technology, putting down a whooping 1,632 PS (1,609 HP / 1,200 kW) and 1,320 Nm (973 lb-ft) of torque.

“Arcfox is a beam of light that the BAIC Group presents to the world with its innovation and this beam of light is illuminating the way for us to move forward,” said company chairman Mr. Heyi Xu.

The Arcfox GT is a product of BAIC’s high-performance vehicle R&D center in Spain. As for how it compares to that Arcfox 7 Concept from 2016, well, we’ll let you work that out for yourselves. We will however point out that the Arcfox-7 was nowhere near as powerful as the Arcfox GT.

    The front end looks like a viper (not the Dodge version). I just wish the photographer used a different lens and stood back a bit. I imagine I’d get the same view in person if someone were pushing my face into the car and saying, “See? Doesn’t it look cool?”

  • SteersUright

    No thanks. Looks like a kit car.
