When solely fossil-fuel powered vehicles have been round, the probabilities of a brand new auto firm being arrange have been very slim. Since electrical vehicles have develop into a factor, the variety of organizations hell-bent on making such vehicles has nonetheless elevated dramatically.
Take Norway, for example. The nation has zero automobile making corporations, and nearly no auto manufacturing business in any respect. However that’s about to vary.
Taking its title after American futurist Jacque Fresco, Fresco Motors hopes to develop into the nation’s first actual carmaker. And it’ll make EVs.
In line with InsideEVs, the automobile the corporate is engaged on is known as Fresco Reverie, and we’re more likely to see one within the flesh someday in 2021. The car seems to be eerily just like a Tesla however guarantees to be a lot quicker.
Not many particulars concerning the car are identified at this level. The battery will present a “long-range” meant to remedy the world of vary anxiousness, and will probably be able to fast- and wi-fi charging.
Most intriguing are the efficiency figures. The preliminary numbers offered by Fresco level to the machine being able to reaching speeds of 300 kph (186 mph). As for acceleration time, that’s rated at simply 2 seconds. Most spectacular.
There may be a lot time left earlier than these numbers will be confirmed by the precise automobile. We will solely hope the corporate makes it, and the car goes into manufacturing.
Norway is electrical automobile heaven. In March 2019, 58 % of all automobile gross sales concerned EVs. In 2018, the market share of those automobiles was 31.2 %, method greater than another nation on the earth.
