A Swiss firm called Kyburz has unveiled a very cool electric car that looks sort of like a cross between an Ariel Atom and a go kart. The vehicle is called the eRod and it is powered by an electric drivetrain for green driving fun. It’s offered in three different power levels from a basic version up to a race version.
That race version of the eRod tips the scales at 650kg and has 200hp and 350nm of torque. That should mean very impressive performance. The machine is fitted with a 39 kWh battery pack good for 220km of range per charge.
The little vehicle uses a tube frame and can be purchased as a complete ready to go car or as a kit. We have no idea how much the little ride costs, but it can’t be cheap. eRod is road legal in Switzerland and whether or not it is street legal in other parts of Europe is unknown. This might be just the ticket for a city dweller who likes to hit the track every now and again with his pals for a day of performance driving.Filed Under: Auto News
