At the Paris Auto Show, the Japanese start-up Green Lord Motors (GLM for short), which is often referred to as 'Tesla of Japan', introduced a luxury electric 4-seater concept, simply called G4. 


The name perhaps sounds simplistic, however the car's performance is all but! Its powertrain consists of two electric motors with total power output of 400 kW and 1000 Nm of torque, helping the G4 accelerate from 0 to 100 kph in 3.7 seconds. Its maximum (limited) speed is reached at 250 kph. GLM has not yet officially revealed the specifics of the battery pack, but they have confirmed the vehicle's range according to the  New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) - G4 with a fully charged battery can make a 400-kilometer-long drive.

GLM did not address its product as an 'EV'. Instead, they tend to refer to it as an 'exotic vehicle', which is not at all out of place, when we consider the fact it comes with four gullwing doors that open upwards in a very unusual manner. It is equipped with four racing seats, a bounty of digital screens and boasts an EV-customized body styling - developed by Dutch supercar designers Savage Rivale - that was originally supposed to house a V8.
