LVCHI AUTO SHOWS VENERE – THE FIRST HIGH PERFORMANCE ELECTRIC LIMOUSINE
LVCHI Auto presented at the Geneva Motor Show 2018 Venus, the first fully electric limousine with high performance tested, ready to go into production in 2019. Venere has been tested by the CSI with surprising results: thanks to over 1,000 horsepower, it reaches 100 km / h stops in just 2.5 seconds, with a top speed of 286 km / h. Autonomy is over 652 km on a single charge.
The Venere project is developed with I.DE.A. Institute, operating in the design, modeling, engineering and prototyping that has made use of the excellence of the Piedmont area in the automotive sector. Among these stands out Bylogix Srl, which designed and developed the electric and electronic vehicle architecture, the logic of integration and function on board and the software that allowed displaying information on the new touch screen in the center console, which acts as a control panel for the driver and passengers.
The 5-meter long limousine is powered by 4 independent electric motors – two front and two rear – capable of reaching 13,000 rpm and generating 185 KW each, for 1,540 Nm of torque. These, together with a 100 KWh Lithium Ion battery, guarantee large numbers in terms of autonomy and performance. LVCHI Auto will start the production of Venus in Turin. Subsequently, a new electric Citycar will be introduced, allowing the brand to position itself on different segments of the market. Between 2020 and 2021, the development plan includes the launch of SUV and MPV platforms and a high-performance electric sedan.
