Protoscar SA revealed the LAMPO, a full size sport cabriolet at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show in March. The model is powered by two BRUSA electric motors, optimized for maximizing acceleration and regenerative braking respectively. They deliver 268 horsepower and 440 Nm of torque. The carmaker will start using the latest technologies in order to implement their plans for future CleanCars.
Protoscar SA has unveiled LAMPO - a full size sport cabriolet - at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show on March 2nd, (stand 5141 in the e-mobile area). LAMPO is powered by two BRUSA electric motors (one rear and one front), optimized for maximizing acceleration and regenerative braking respectively. They deliver a total output of 268 HP and a torque of over 440 Nm. The lightweight Lithium-Ion battery pack with a capacity of 33.6 kWh allows for a range of over 200 km. LAMPO shows that also a zero-emission electric vehicle can offer the same performance as a traditional sporty car. The primary energy source used for charging the LAMPO has been in existence for more than 4.5 billion years and has demonstrated to be rather reliable: itâ€™s the sun. The exploitation of solar energy for LAMPO is possible thanks to a 16 kWp photovoltaic plant located in Seggiano, Tuscany.
Never before a premium driving pleasure like the one of the LAMPO has been achieved at such an optimal level of overall â€śWell-to-Wheelâ€ť energy efficiency - and zero emissions. However, even if the LAMPO was â€śfilled upâ€ť with todayâ€™s particularly clean Swiss electricity mix, the WtW CO2 emissions of this vehicle would only account for about 7 g/km! Considering the EU electricity mix projection scenario for 2020, elaborated by Eurelectric, the WtW CO2 emission would still be limited to about 40 g/km.
Through the showcar LAMPO, Protoscar and its partners aim to demonstrate new technologies which include absolute innovations such as â€žintelligent chargingâ€ś or interactive GPS-based â€žrange estimatorâ€ś â€" and discuss potential applications together with car manufacturers, in order to implement these solutions into their plans for future CleanCars.
