Italy is known for producing some of the world’s best supercars from automakers like Ferrari and Lamborghini, but it has yet to produce a fully-electric supercar. That may change now that Italian company Tecnicar has unveiled a new electric supercar called the Lavinia that can keep up with the world’s best supercars with its 789 horsepower electric motor!
Tecnicar is based in Sicily and has already had success with building small electric vehicles and mobility scooters, but this latest venture marks the first time the company has ventured into the automotive segment with a supercar. Tecnicar has created one other electric car prior to the Lavinia, but it was a small microcar called the Genius.

Tecnicar hasn’t released all of the details surrounding the Lavinia, but we do know that it can travel up to 180 miles on a full charge and has a 0-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds. It can also reach a top speed of 186 mph. The company hopes to have a prototype of the Lavinia ready for the Top Marques show in Monaco next April.
