The French firm Venturi have established themselves as
one of the leading niche electric sports car manufacturers
in the world. Their first model, the Venturi
Fetish, has been quietly zooming around since 2002,
and despite the electric drivetrain it's got remarkable
It's good news then that the Venturi America prototype
the company showed off at the 2010 Paris Motor Show is
based on the Fetish's platform.
The Venturi America is a high-riding sports car with quirky
dune-buggy like styling.
The Venturi America has an electric motor which produces
over 300 hp (+220 kW) and 380 Nm of torque from zero rpm.
According to Venturi it is the most advanced electric
motor ever designed for an automobile.
To get the very best out of the electric motor, a new
54 kWh battery pack has been developed (LIV-10 Lithium
Ion Polymer batteries) whose electronics and battery management
system comes courtesy of Ventec.
The Venturi America offers a real range of up to 186 miles
(300 km). Thanks to its onboard charger, it can recharge
using a standard electrical socket or fast charge terminal.
