The America  runs on an electric powertrain and a rear mounted motor that generates more than 300 horsepower — the same motor in the Venturi Fetish , the world’s first production electric sports car. The company says the machinery is the “most advanced electric motor ever designed for an automobile.” The 54-kWh lithium-ion batteries provide a range of up to 190 miles at a stabilized speed of 56 mph.
The vehicle’s introduction celebrates the Monaco-based company’s opening of a North American division in Columbus, Ohio. The company currently works with Ohio State University’s Center for Automotive Research , and they plan to deepen their collaboration with the development of new electric car components.
