The very first teaser image with a new electric supercar, named the Volar-E, has been recently released by its creators, ahead of the model’s presentation scheduled for this Friday.
The Volar-E is an electric supercar which is produced by the Spanish engineering firm Applus+Idiada, after the company has been chosen last year (2012) by the European Commission to design and to build a high performance electric vehicle. According to the Spanish based “automaker”, in order for the Volar-E to come to life, Rimac, a small Croatian carmaker, had to offer its knowledge, along with the lightweight carbon fiber body.
These aren’t the only things offered by Rimac and the Croatian car manufacturer has also made the tubular chrome molybdenum chassis and batteries. The Volar-E electric super is powered by 4 electric motors, which are generating a total output of 800 HP (596 kW) and 1,500 Nm of torque (1,106 lb-ft). The electric motors are mated to a 38 kWh battery system, borrowed from Rimac. The 2013 Volar-E electric supercar will be officially unveiled at the Circuit de Catalunya, this Friday. More details on the Volar-E are limited for the moment.
