All-new Renovo Coupe electric supercar revealed with over 500 hp

Renovo Motors introduced the Renovo Coupe with a production prototype this past weekend at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance.

This new Silicon Valley based automotive startup founded in 2010 calls it “America’s First All-Electric Supercar” and the numbers sure are nice.

Powered by mid-mounted twin sequential axial-flux motors producing over 500 horsepower and 1000 lb-ft of torque the Renovo Coupe goes from 0-60mph in 3.4 seconds. Faster than any other rear-wheel drive electric car currently on the market.

The drivetrain ramps to full power in just 37 milliseconds.

The car sure looks familiar with its retro look as it uses a modified Shelby American CSX9000 rolling chassis with an updated body, frame, suspension, and cabin.

Weighing 1474kg, the car also features patent-pending modular lithium ion battery technology. The 100 mile range is not very impressive comparing it to Tesla Roadster or Model S, but the battery can be refilled in just 30 minutes with a quick charge and in 5 hours with level 2 charge.

The Renovo Coupe will enter limited production in 2015 and it won’t be cheap. Reportedly it is priced at $529,000 (£316k).
