Possibly the most jaw dropping of all the fuel efficient super sports cars we've featured, the Venturi Volage, is an all electric, high performance machine. This lightweight carbon fiber chassis is powered by 4 individual electric wheel motors. This system offers a tremendous performance and handling advantage over a single drive system, plus they offer an equivalent 295 hp and can launch this beauty from 0 to 60 in under five seconds.
The 45 kWh Polymer Lithium batteries gain some boost from a regenerative deceleration system and at 55 mph it has a range of approximately 200 miles. Using the onboard charger it can charge up in about 8 hours or using an external charge booster you can have this car up to full power in 4 hours.
Now for the bad news that I'm sure you've already guessed. This beacon of efficient power and beauty isn't slated for production until 2012. There's no word on price now but I think it's safe to say that you'll have to pay Venturi an arm and a leg to get one. Let's just hope they make some huge advances in prosthetics over the next 4 years, because I have to have one.
