Techrules Set to Reveal Production Version of Turbine Electric Supercar in Geneva

Following-up on the unveiling of its AT96 concept vehicle at last year’s Geneva Motor Show, Chinese startup Techrules will be revealing the production version of its supercar this year on March 7.

The concept employed Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle (TREV) technology in which a microturbine is used to generate electricity to charge a battery pack which in turn provides power to six electric motors.

The powertrain was projected to provide 1,030 hp and 6,372 pound-feet of torque, acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in 2.5 seconds and the ability to reach a top speed of 218 miles per hour. At the time of the reveal, maximum driving range for the AT96 was said to be 1,242 miles.

While details of the production version of the car have not been disclosed, Techrules have released a teaser sketch showing the exterior design.

Techrules says that designers Fabrizio and Giorgetto Giugiaro are responsible for the “dramatic, aerospace-inspired” look which features a jet-style canopy and cockpit, “star-burst” reversing LEDs and integrated rear-view cameras.

Call us crazy, but we say this car looks remarkably similar to the Batmobile.
