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.
