Renovo to show electric supercar prototype at CES

Renovo Motors, Inc., will offer the first public viewing of its electric supercar prototype at the upcoming 2015 International CES in Las Vegas. (Earlier post.)

Using a factory-modified Shelby American CSX9000 rolling chassis (“Cobra Daytona Coupe”), Renovo’s eponymous coupe features twin mid-mounted sequential axial-flux motors producing more than 370 kW (500 hp) and 1,000 lb-ft (1,356 N·m) of torque, with a 0-60 mph time of less than 3.4 seconds. Top speed is more than 120 mph (193 km/h).

The Renovo Coupe is powered by a patent-pending 740 volt lithium-ion battery pack.

The coupe is on sale now in limited quantities and will begin shipping in 2015. The Renovo Coupe will be on display at the NVIDIA Booth #30307.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be attending the Consumer Electronics Show and to have the opportunity to display the Renovo Coupe alongside all of NVIDIA’s amazing new automotive technology. CES is the perfect stage for us to show the world what can be done with electric vehicles.

—Christopher Heiser, CEO of Renovo Motors
