Chinese startup, Techrules has been developing its first model, an electric car that has a jet turbine or a range-extender.
Techrules will be building and designing the car from scratch, and the concept car was showcased at the 2016 Geneva auto show. Now, the company is all ready to unveil their first production version, dubbed the Techrules GT96.
The company has already started to tease the public with the teaser images of the upcoming EV, and the production is set to start in Italy by late 2017. Initially, Techrules will be making cars at 25 units per year.
Unlike many other unearthly concepts, the exterior of the GT96 will feature a sleek design created by the legendary car designer, Giogetto Giugiaro, and his son.
The performance figures claimed by the car include a 1,030 Bhp power output and a 0 to 100km/h time of 2.5 seconds. The top speed of the car will be limited to 349 Km/h while the range is over 1900Kms.
The company hopes to launch its cars equipped with a TREV powertrain in traditional vehicle segments.
The company's Chinese rival startup, NextEV also follows a similar strategy, although the company uses pure battery-electric powertrains.
