Exagon launches Furtive e-GT electric car

Exagon, a French racing team which has fielded SEAT Leons in the WTCC since 2007, has launched an electric road car they call the Furtive e-GT. They will be bringing it to the Paris Motor Show this week.

The car is powered by two electric motors developing a sum total of 340 hp. This allows for a 0-100 kph time of 3.5 seconds, and a top speed of 300 kph.

Being an EV though, the more pressing concern is range, and Exagon has done a good job with that. The electric motors will go for 400 km, which is already quite impressive, but it has a range extending gasoline engine which doubles that figure.

The car is currently a prototype, but a production version should be prepared sometime next year, with sales beginning in 2012. There’s no word on pricing, but expect it to be very expensive.
