Polish Startup Varsovia’s Long-Range REx Electric Car To Enter Production After 2018

September 7th, 2016 by  


The Polish electric vehicle startup Varsovia Motor Company is now planning for a new long-range electric sedan to go into limited production sometime after 2018, according to recent reports.

The model will be pretty substantial if the company’s figures are to be believed — an all-electric range of 215 miles; a petrol range extender that adds another 311 miles of range; 0–62 mph acceleration in under 5 seconds; and an extensive “mobile workplace.”

Autoblog provides us with more info: “Where things really divert from the normal, though, is the car’s emphasis on becoming a mobile workplace. The passenger seat has been removed to provide extra working space from the back seat, while the car will feature a built-in computer, tablet, mouse, and keyboard. Additionally, there will be two 19-inch screens that can be combined to make a single 38-inch screen. Also, the car will have sensors that will track the driver’s heart rate, and will then adjust the vehicle’s music and lighting accordingly. So while the automaker is unproven, one has to respect the somewhat unorthodox approach the company is taking to luxury motoring.”

Certainly a distinct approach.

It should be noted here that initial production will apparently be very limited — only 50 or so units a year.

(If you’re wondering, the emblem/logo is based on Sawa — the mermaid on Warsaw’s coat of arms.)

More information can be found on the company’s website.
