Exagon Furtive-eGT in Geneva

We now have the opportunity to meet a new concept, developed by Exagon Motors, the Furtive-eGT. The new model is capable of great performance without making any compromises when it comes to the environment. The 4-seat model has a carbon body-work that hides an electric drive train. The ones interested in owning one of these bad boys should know that it is now available for order. The first deliveries will begin before the end of this year. The new Furtive-eGT was launched last year at the Paris Motors Show in 2012 and it has been a great success ever since. The sports car receives power from two electric motors developed by Siemens Inside e-Car.

These are installed centrally on an aluminum cradle at the rear and use a 3-speed gearbox with seamless torque delivery to transfer the output to the wheels. Each unit is capable of generating 402 BHP and 516 Nm of torque. This amount of power enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and to reach an electronically limited top speed of 250 km per hour. When is decelerating, the magnetic field of the electric motors contributes to the braking properties of the car and each motor acts like a generator to recharge the batteries and so increase the range of the vehicle. The new Furtive-eGT is equipped with battery made by Saft, world leader in lithium-ion batteries with expertise dating back almost 100 years.

This latest-generation battery has a capacity of 35 kWh and weigh 450 kg overall. The battery is highly recyclable. After 3.000 cycles, being used virtually every day over a period of ten years, it still has at least 80% of its energy capacity. The monocoque body of the model is made only from a carbon fiber structure based on Formula 1 technology and the body weighs only 124 kg overall.
