Protoscar Lampo 2 will be on show at Geneva next month
2 March 2010

Swiss car maker Protoscar has revealed its all-electric Lampo 2 sports car.

The Protoscar Lampo 2 is underpinned by General Motors’ Kappa platform, which has previously been used on the Saturn Sky and Opel GT.

It is powered by two electric motors and a lithium ion battery pack. The motors’ combined power output is equivalent to 345bhp and combined torque is 442lb ft. Extra power comes from solar panels on its bodywork.

Each motor powers one axle ensuring the Lampo 2 is all-wheel drive. Torque can be varied between the front and rear axles to improve handling and efficiency.

The Lampo 2 can get from 0-62mph in around five seconds and go on to reach a top speed of 124mph. It has four different charging options including one which provides a 60 mile range after just 10 minutes recharging.

Its maximum range is 124miles and a full recharge takes around eight hours from a standard household plug socket.

I bizarrely cant decide whether I think its hideous or actually quite cool....

I dont like the front. But I like the overall proportions. & I love the covered rear wheels- I keep hoping Jaguar will reintroduce these as they were quite a Jaguar feature in the 50s, & would look sooo cool now.

It's all a bit back to the future stuff, what next a car that runs on recycling your household waste?,another five years and these kind of cars will be more accepted, at the moment their,too expensive, too limited by range and where to re-charge(no infra-structure), and if the government decides to go the Hydrogen route, they'll be obsolete in a decade.

  • Kia Stonic

    18 October 2017
    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
  • Hyundai Kona

    18 October 2017
    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment
  • Citroën C3 Aircross

    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
