It was at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show when Piëch Automotive AG unveiled its new electric sports car and roughly two years later, the Swiss company is reporting progress on its new offering.
Built under the project name Piëch GT, the electric sports car with 500 km of driving range is now undergoing trials and will officially launch sometime in 2024. The Piëch GT will mark the first vehicle in a product family of three variants. It will be joined by the Piëch SUV and a sports sedan called Sportlimousine.
The Piëch GT tips the scales at 1,800 kg while also boasting a length of 4,432 mm, a width of 1,991 mm, a height of 1,250 mm and wheelbase of 2,620 mm.
It employs a 75 kWh Li-Ion battery pack that can be recharged from 0-80% capacity in eight minutes at a fast-charging station – a special fast charger sees the EV sportscar getting recharged in under five minutes.
The battery pack powers a trio of 150 kW electric motors, two at the rear axle and one at the front. The setup is good for 450 kW of power enabling the electric GT sports car to sprint from a standstill to 100 km/h in under three seconds. A sprint from 0-200 km/h is achieved in under 9 seconds.
According to the Swiss carmaker, its second prototype will be on the road in March 2022 with more expected at a later stage. The company expects to build a volume of 1,200 vehicles in the first year.
