This high-performance electric car offers three configuration options, namely two, four and six electric motors with patented Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle (TREV). Where for the configuration that uses six electric motors (two electric motors on the front and four motors on the rear), it can generate 1,287 horsepower which allows the supercar to accelerate from 0-100 kph in just 2.5 seconds with the highest speed of 320 kph.

While other versions are more benign, available options with 858 horsepower that uses four electric motors and 429 horsepower that uses two electric motors. The power source that distributes electricity to all motors comes from a battery with a capacity of 14 kWh, 25 kWh and 32 kWh. This battery can be charged up to 80 percent in less than 15 minutes by using a DC fast charger with a lifespan of 100,000 cycles.

For the TREV itself is available in two choices ie 30 kW and 80 kW, where the most economical option can travel a distance of 2,000 km by consuming 80 liters of fuel. Meanwhile, when driving on the emissions-free mode, Ren can travel as far as 200 km. Techrules also says that TREV is more efficient when driven by using diesel fuel, but it could be use gas too.
Furthermore Techrules estimates that the production phase will begin in 2018. And as many as 96 units will be built in Italy, but no more than 10 units will be made per year, but there's no official pricing info available. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | EVO | TOPSPEED]
