We have electric cars. We have supercars. Now, we have the "first all-electric American supercar," and it looks … like a Shelby Daytona.
The 2015 Renovo Coupe was unveiled earlier this week at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, after the company claims it has been operating in "stealth" mode, building the car for the last four years.
The Coupe, powered by lithium ion battery pack and direct-drive twin sequential axial flux motors, can go from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds. It has 1,000 ft-lbs of torque and puts out over 500 horsepower, with a top speed of just over 120 mph. It can be recharged in five hours with a Level 2 charge, or 30 minutes with a Level 3 fast charge.
With limited production soon to begin in the Silicon Valley, deliveries of the Renovo Coupe will start in 2015, with a price tag of $529,000.
