100% Electric Exagon Furtive-eGT Just $585,000

March 8th, 2013 by  

Well, “just” might only apply to a few of our readers (if that). $585,000 (or €388,000) is, believe it or not, a little outside the budget of this cleantech blogger… and about 99.9% of the people on earth. But the good news is that we get to read and write about it! (And hey, that’s half the fun anyway, right?)

The Exagon Furtive-eGT, which we’ve written about once or twice here on CleanTechnica, was just unveiled this week at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show (along with details regarding a couple of other supercars). Chris DeMorro of sister site Gas2 has more information on this one:

The production version of the Exagon Furtive-eGT tips the scales at a healthy 3,600 pounds and is powered by two Siemens electric motors producing a combined output of 395 horsepower and 376 ft-lbs of torque. While not nearly as much power as the Mercedes SLS AMG Electric Drive, the Benz is also a lot heavier, which allows the Exagon to reach 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds (or so Exagon estimates). Like the Mercedes though, top speed is limited to 155 mph, though the 53 kWh battery pack offers a driving range of around 225 miles.

And it’s shiny.

In all seriousness, if you’re into supercars, this is a beauty. And if you’re into electric cars, I think you have to be happy that there are such prestigious ones being made, increasing the desirability of EVs in general.

And, once again, as Nicholas noted when writing about the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG electric supercar, the rich folk who buy the Exagon Furtive-eGT (assuming some will) are subsidizing the development of electric vehicle technology that could make its way into mass production electric vehicles for the general population.

When it comes to this particular EV, the question is really how it will perform (in sales) compared to competing supercars — cars which may not actually be as “super,” but which come from more established car companies. How do you think it will fare compared to the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG electric supercar and the hybrid LaFerrari supercar, for example?

Check out our new 93-page EV report, based on over 2,000 surveys collected from EV drivers in 49 of 50 US states, 26 European countries, and 9 Canadian provinces.

    “And it’s shiny.” – That was great.

    But about the car itself… Even if I could afford that, I think I prefer the look of a Model S over this or the SLS AMG. But that Ferrari is hot!

    • 😀 i lean towards the SLS AMG myself, followed by the Ferrari. but i’m not a car guy.

  • Ugh. Another shiny toy for the super-rich.
    If you want to make EVs more desirable, make one like a Model T. No bells and whistles, no frills, no nonsense. A simple, basic vehicle for the common, sometimes-working man.
