The Chinese automotive brand LCVHI will bring a four-seat, all-electric supercar called Venere, with 992 horses under the hood to the 88th Geneva International Motor Show opening in Switzerland on March 8th, 2018.
Previewed in two officially released images, the Venere arrives with four electric motors, two on each axle, fed by a 100kWh lithium ion battery pack. The car features a two-speed gearbox on each axle. The manufacturer states that Venere makes the usual sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds and can accelerate up to 250 km/h. It is also reported to have an impressive driving range of up to 500 kilometers in a single charge.
Designed by the Institute of Development in Automotive Engineering in Italy, the car uses a chassis made from a carbon-fibre, helping the car achieve its 2100kg kerb weight despite the mass of hardware on board. LVCHI said that the car’s cabin features a touchscreen in the tunnel between the driver and passenger in place of a conventional rotary control.
The car on show in Geneva will be a production ready example, although LVCHI is yet to conform where the model will be offered and for how much. LCVHI is currently busy constructing a plant in China which is expected to reach its full production capacity of 50,000 all-electric cars per year in mid-2019.
LVCHI was established two years ago in Shanghai. It employs 400 people, with 75% of its workforce focused on research and development towards electric vehicles.
