The RACC (Royal Automobile Club of Catalonia) has been designated by the European Commission as the entity responsible for organising the presentation of an electric show vehicle with a super performance; the VOLAR-e.
The company Applus+ IDIADA, which specialises in providing design, engineering, testing and homologation services, has been chosen to develop the vehicle which will be presented by the most important Spanish automobile club.
The VOLAR-e is designed as an electric car with outstanding features that are comparable to or even better than those of conventional motor vehicles. It can reach a power of up to 1,000 hp and accelerates from zero to one hundred km/h in less than 3.5 seconds. In addition, the bodywork will be made of carbon fibre and it will have the latest technology with respect to batteries and charging systems.
The aim of this project, which is co-financed by the European Commission, is to promote the electric vehicle society and achieve better acceptance of electric vehicles by the population. All those interested in the project can follow its process of development in Facebook: www.facebook.com/applusidiada.[:]
