Geneva 2011 – Artega SE – rpmGo.com

Artega SE

The German specialty marquee Artega has brought to this year’s edition of the Geneva Motor Show an electric variant of their mid-engined GT model which they’ve named it Artega SE (Sport Electric). It features two electric motors that were installed on the rear axle and they operate independently. The electricity comes from a 37 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery with a nominal voltage of 350V.

The car can do the 0-60 mph sprint in 4.8 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). On the European test cycle (NEDC – New European Driving Cycle), the Artega SE was able to do 186 miles (300 km) with the batteries full. However, the company said that with a more “comfortable” driving style (with other words, real life); the Artega SE can do 124 miles (200 km). When using a high-powered charging station, the EV can be fully charged in only 90 minutes.

The car has a curb weight of 3086 lbs (1400 kg), which is approximately 220 lbs (100 kg) less in comparison with the GT model, but has the exact same weight distribution as the conventional-powered model, 57:43.

The officials of the automaker said that they will think about whether to take the Artega SE into production as they have an annual overall production of 500 units at their facility in Delbruck, Germany.
