It looks even better in convertible form.
The NEVS Emily GT took the world by storm when it was unveiled last week, with the insane specs being as interesting as the fact it's almost a production-ready car that was conceived in just 10 months. Penned by Chief Exterior Designer Hirash Razaghi, the artist has just released some more drawings of the vehicle, including a convertible 'GTO' version, on his LinkedIn account.
One picture exists, and it's only of the rear of the vehicle, but we can pretty much assume the front will take from the Emily GT. The two-door vehicle has a 2+2 seating setup with a rear that reminds us of the Aston Martin DBS Volante, quite the comparison if you ask us. It looks fantastic and is doing a great job of convincing us some company needs to swoop in and purchase everything they can regarding the design ASAP.
With the credentials Hirash Razaghi has, it's no wonder the vehicle looks as good as it does. Just scrolling through his LinkedIn, his designing experience stretches from one automaker to another. At Volvo Trucks, he designed the FH 16 semi truck before making his way over to Hyundai, working on the 2012 I-oniq concept and then moving to Lotus.
After a short stint there, he moved to Infiniti and then all the way to Bugatti, where he worked on details for the Veyron and Chiron. Before NEVS, he developed the exterior of the Lynk & Co 03 and also worked on the 01. Needless to say, the man knows how to design a beautiful vehicle.
Since that's the case, it's the cherry on top that the Emily GT has some eye-popping performance specs as well, especially the claimed 620 miles of range. The car produces 480 horsepower thanks to the electric motors at each wheel. A higher output 653 horsepower model was also planned with a targetted 0-60 mph time of only 3.2 seconds.
All that range came from a whopping 175-kilowatt-hour battery pack that was never actually fit to any of the six prototypes, with them instead using 52 kWh packs. If the car is ever produced with such a large pack, it will most likely weigh over 2,000 pounds, so it's going to need to pull out some tricks to make what will most likely be a 5,000lb+ car feel sporty.
But will it be made? Who knows.
There's a good chance all of these headlines floating around about the car are stretching the truth a bit in the name of seeking a buyer. We don't blame them, because it really seems like a monumental amount of effort was already put into a project that appears worthy of a chance.
Hopefully, some brand out there looking for a quick way into the EV race will scoop it up while interest is still hot. If we can make one suggestion, though, we think buying and reviving the Saab name for it would really give it an edge. Maybe just call it the Saab GT or something along those lines to really get people excited.
