Not since Tesla electrified the auto world with its lean green supercars has an all-electric vehicle gotten pulses pounding this quickly. Germany-based auto manufacturer E-Wolf recently unveiled images and specs of their new e2, a 537 horsepower plug-in sports car that boasts slick Italian styling and a 0-60 speed of under 4 seconds.

Even though supercars tend to be ridiculously fast and ludicrously expensive, the trend towards high performance plug-ins proves that electric vehicles can more than keep up with their gas guzzling counterparts.

Upping the ante in this field, E-Wolf‘s e2 will be propelled by four in-wheel 134 horsepower electric motors that produce a total of 536 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive gives the vehicle plenty of traction to stay on the road, which is handy when cruising at the vehicle’s top speed of 155 mph. E-Wolf claims that the vehicle will have a 187-mile range on a full battery and will be capable of charging completely in 30 minutes thanks to an innovative flat cell Li-Tec battery.

Kai Schönenberg, Marketing Manager at e-WOLF has stated “Our aim is to offer a 2-seater extreme sports car in 2011: the e-WOLF e-2 . . . It will achieve dynamic vehicle performance that is sure to be very impressive . . . Here at e-WOLF, we can certainly envisage our e-2 participating in a 24-hour race in the next few years.” The first prototype of the vehicle will launch in 2011, with full production to start soon thereafter.

    “why can’t we wean ourselves off of this obsession with the automobile”? because automobiles are fun fun fun (and sexy too) people will always love their cars. no point trying to fight that, unless futility gets your rocks off.. trying to reduce their enviromental impact is a positive thing. its through sexy projects like this that the tech gets perfected so that one day the jomings of the world can ride electric buses to their locally grown vegan paradises.

    What frustrates me about supercars like this is that while it is a high performance vehicle capable of competing with conventional vehicles, it’s not really a shift in terms of thinking. What is the environmental/energy cost associated with producing the Li-Tec battery? Why can’t we wean ourselves off of this obsession with the automobile, and ever-increasing specs for horsepower and torque, and start looking at changing the way we look at transportation and the way we move people and goods.
