Fancy some electric racing of your own?
KYBURZ Switzerland AG is a Zürich-based company that develops and produces high-quality electric vehicles not only for the delivery and industrial sectors, but also for the private market. The company's last product in line - after electric three- and four-wheelers for personal transport, and for example, the DXP, an electric three-wheeler used by the Switzerland's national postal service, which is what the company is most famous for - is an electric sports car that premiered at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show.
eRod comes in three different models - the Basic, the Fun and the Race. The first two models have the same 45-kW (60 hp) motor that generates 140 Nm (103 lb-ft) of torque. The Basic, with the 10 kWh battery included, weighs 530 kilograms, can reach maximum speeds of up to 120 km/h (75 mph) and has a range of up to 70 kilometers. The Fun model is a little heavier at 600 kilograms, including the 17.3 kWh battery, and while reaching the same estimated top speed as the Basic, this model has a longer range, namely of up to 130 kilometers.
The Race model weighs 120 kilograms more than the Basic model and comes equiped with a 150-kW (201-hp) motor producing 305 Nm(225 lb-ft) of torque. The 39-kWh battery provides a range of up to 220 kilometers and gives enough power to see this little daredevil race at maximum speeds of up to 140 km/h (87 mph).
The Basic's battery can be recharged in 6 hours, the Fun's in 10 and the Race's in only 4 hours.
