Protoscar Lampo2

Protoscar, a Swiss company has developed the LAMPO2, an electric demonstration sports car, a model that will be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March. This is actually an even more energy efficient successor to the LAMPO demonstration vehicle presented in 2009. Weight, aerodynamics and the efficiency of individual components of the BRUSA drive train have been further optimized in order to reach a world-class energy consumption of less than 100 WH / km-ton under real conditions. The new LAMPO2 will be shown together with different charging infrastructure solutions like a smart home charge device, the public charging station E-TOTEM and the quick-charging station. The model manages to demonstrate that electric drive-trains are mature and perform sufficiently well to be a solution for all types of vehicles. In this category we have premium cars, the segment through which most new technologies have successfully been introduced into the market. The carmaker has repeatedly been encouraged to develop an advanced electric cabriolet for small-scale production and plans to use the LAMPO2 to evaluate this possibility. To be more precise, this evaluation will include discussions with potential industrial and financial partners, and an assessment of the preferences and desires of potential clients. The Swiss LAMPO2 is powered by two electric motors with a total output of 300 kW, 640 Nm of torque and over 30 kW of lithium-ion battery capacity. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds and to reach a top speed of 200 km/h. Also a remote solar plant which is installed on the roof of a farm in Tuscany, allows a real zero-emission drive, so more than enough energy to drive. The electric motors allow the model to operate as a four-wheel drive with variable torque between front and rear axle for optimal handling, safety and efficiency.
