German start-up Loremo, of the 157 mpg diesel-powered car that showed up at the Frankfurt Auto Show last October, is now introducing a second eco-friendly flavour to their line up - an electric version named the oh so clever... wait for it... E-Loremo.
The E-Loremo features a 20KW electric engine, with short-term bursts of 40kw possible. The company says the car ought to consume 6kwh/100km, about the same as 0.6 litres of diesel fuel, and reach a top speed of around 170 kph.
Loremo hasn't gotten specific on the battery capacity yet, but it's looking to put around 150 to 200 kilometres of range into every charge.
