The Loremo to be EV in 2010

Comes from ABG:

Quote:
It seems earlier musings about the possibilities of an all-electric option for the Loremo, the German wunder car, an electric version has been confirmed. Via the company blog comes news that the X-Prize-pursuing company plans to unleash an all-electric adaptation of their lightweight, aerodynamic automotive vision in early 2010, around the same time as the high-mpg diesel version debuts.

The e-Loremo's motor should produce 20kw of continuous power with bursts of up to 40kw (55hp). The blog's claim that the 0 to 100 kph (62 mph) time of 15 seconds is an illustration that, and I quote, "no compromises have been made in the field of performance" may be laughable to some in light of recent discussions of the proper amount of acceleration required for American driving. Thankfully, other numbers should meet with more widespread approval. For example the Loremo boasts a top speed of 170kph (105mph), a range of 150 to 200 kilometers (93 to 124 miles) and energy consumption of a measly 6kwh/100kph. Not too shabby.

The company wants to have its first prototype finished by the middle of this year and so as to show its commitment to that end, it has decided to skip this year's Geneva Motor Show and spend time in the lab instead. Watch this space for future details and announcements.
Should be pretty darn interesting to see what happens with this and the aptera. Good looking numbers, eh? (except mehbe acceleration)

I more interested in the diesel

Supposedly a two cylinder engine (a more expensive three cylinder is planned) getting 100mpg. Doesn't have to worry about magic batteries or how fast that 18 sec 0-60 launch just drained them.

My electricity is made with over 60% coal. I'm pretty sure that any EV powered around here will produce much more CO2 (nevermind what it took to build the silly thing) than the loremo diesel.

I would argue the co2 point on the diesel v. the power plant, though.
