China's Techrules GT96 Debuting In Production-Guise At Geneva 2017

China’s ambitious #Techrules GT96 electric #supercar is set to debut in production form at March’s Geneva Motor Show 2017, one year after the bold concept shocked the world.

While the company behind the vehicle has yet to announce how similar the production car will be to the concept, if it does retain the same drivetrain, it will be unlike anything else on the market. That’s if it actually reaches production of course.

The drivetrain is based around six electric motors, two driving the front wheels and four powering the rears. All up, the GT96 concept had 1,030 hp, apparently enough to send the vehicle from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.5 seconds and on to a 217 mph (350 km/h) top speed.

Even though such claims are very ambitious, they pale in comparison to the new kind of recharging technology previewed by the concept. Dubbed Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle technology, the car uses a range-extending micro-turbine system which runs off 80 liters of aviation kerosene. That’s apparently enough to result in a range exceeding 1,200 miles (2,000 km).

It is reported that before a road-going version of the GT96 is released, a track-only model will hit the production line, potentially located somewhere in Europe.
