Geneva 2011: Irmscher 7 SELECTRA

German tuner Irmscher has revealed their new electric powered roadster concept, which is based on the Irmscher 7 Turbo Roadster at the 81st Geneva Motor Show. The Lotus 7 type car utilizes a 144V DC motor that produces 235 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, the highest amount of torque available on the market for an EV. The batteries consist of liquid cooled Lithium iron phosphate cells, which feature thousands of cycles of depleting and recharging capacity along with as little power loss at low temperatures.

Another interesting thing with these batteries is that they can be charged wirelessly and can be charged to 80 percent capacity in less than 60 minutes and 100 percent between three and eight hours. Irmscher claims a driving range of 124 miles. If the plan sticks, Irmscher will put the 7 SELECTRA on sale for less than €90,000. The standard 7 Turbo Roadster, by comparison, goes for about €56,000.
