Electric sport car concepts from the 2011 Geneva Motor Show – Green and Mean Prototypes!
As always, the 2011 Geneva Motor Show brings some exciting concepts to the light. In this case we covered few amazing electric sport cars and hybrids, PLUS two players we would like to see in electric car segment.
Let’s start the show!
BMW the Vision ConnectedDrive
BMW new concept is roadster electric sport car with sexy body works, jaw-dropping lines, 3D display, electronics that react on car occupants and plug-in electric motor. Futuristic Z car for BMW is a real electric sport car with vision for the future.
Abarth Scorpione 1300
The Scorpion 1300 is all-electric, lithium-ion battery-powered design study from Turin’s Istituto Europeo di Design with one motor at each rear wheel. It’s time for Abarth’s to rock again! After few decades, that is. One of the most exciting cars in the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.
Citroën Metropolis is beautifully designed sedan, originally created for the French pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo. There is no a lot of details related to Citroën Metropolis, but this cool and sexy French look should be spread over the whole range.
We wrote before about Rolls-Royce bringing in fully electirc luxury sedan named 102EX. Here it is. As always it’s grande elegant tank. I love it. Specially as it doesn’t take V12 to move it.
Nissan Esflow concept
Everything you always wanted from the electric sport car is here. Nissan Esflow. Beautiful sculptured Z style sport coupe body. Rear wheel power from electric engine that push car from 0 – 100 in less than 5 seconds. 150 miles range. Japanese electric sport car in purest form. Right here, right now. Everyone else go home.
Why they DIDN’T make this into electric??? Pagani Zonda, made ultra-super-cool Huayra supercar. 700 horsepower from 12-cylinder twin-turbo engine built by AMG is enough for 0-62 time of 3.3 seconds. All yours for $1.6 million. Plus few millions for a petrol. Or they could go electric…
My favorite design on the 2011 Geneva Motor Show? Sbarro Evoluzione. You gotta love those lines. The Evoluzione creation of students of Swiss designer Franco Sbarro, who is in Wikipedia known as the inventor of the hubless wheel. Car is powered by 1.8-liter Audi four-cylinder engine powering rear wheels. And why there is no electric motor? OK, we’ll have to wait till the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. No problem.
