Renovo Coupe

Tesla, watch out. There is a new electric kid on the block and it’s all sparkly and new and pretty impressive!

Meet the all new Renovo Coupe – an electric super car that looks to tackle Tesla and their Model S head on. The car was designed by Renovo, and don’t feel bad if you haven’t heard of them before.

Renovo is a startup based in the home of all fancy startups, Silicon Valley. Here, the company designed and developed the good-looking Renovo Coupe in secret for nearly 4 years. And finally, the Tesla rival has been unveiled to the public.

First off, the car really is beautiful. WHile it’s electric and certainly very modern, it has a classic, alluring vintage/retro look that definitely makes it stand out in the crowd. Not that said ‘crowd’ is very big – it’s pretty much only the Tesla Model S and the Renovo in it’s class. Although, things might start to look different once Tesla releases their planned electric coupe. (more…)

There haven’t been many places where you could find the images of the world’s fastest electric roadster — Tesla Roadster Sport, but thanks to the first dedicated store opening in the East Coast, the pictures are finally out. This will definitely be a car to look out for as not many (indeed none of the cars until date) electric roadsters can clock a 0 to 60 timing of 3.7 seconds, bettering the 3.9 of the previous variant. There is also a slight power boost from hard-wound stator and increased winding density, a set of high-performance tires, with a revised suspension with adjustable dampers and anti-roll bars and minor exterior changes including black hood vents and similar wheels. The enthusiasts could get this one home in June next year for a starting price of $128,500.
