There are a number of interesting electric vehicles at the Geneva event this year ranging from the EV Tata Nano to the Tag Heuer Tesla Roadster and the latest addition is the Westfield iRacer. Categorically, the Westfield Racer is an EV racer which is designed to compete in the EV Cup which is a one-make race car series launching in 2011.
The iRacer version unveiled in Geneva is closest to the production model and the designer Elliott Hawkins believes that it has electric pulse running through its veins. The body construction material such as aluminum and recyclable plastics keeps the overall car weight down to 600kg. On the inside, the Westfield iRacer is powered Lithium Phosphate battery which produces 109PS with 1,000Nm of torque and this combination helps the car pelt from 0 to 60mph in less than 5 seconds with an overall top seed of 177km/h.
Geneva has been great this year. With accents on green vehicles and luxurious rides, we’re know you’d have badmouth us for not telling you more about the Protoscar Lampo. Announced in February, the Swiss went live with it a few days ago, and we managed to find more details. Powered by two special BRUSA getting their juice from a lightweight li-ion battery capable of storing 32 kW, the electric vehicle accounts for a good 268 hp and 440 Nm torque, and offers a 193 km range. There’s no release date or a price for that one, but if anyone from Protoscar cares we’re available for a test drive. Call us! [via WCF]
