Australian based company Varley Engineering have announced the evR450 electric super car at the Australia Electric Vehicle Conference in Brisbane. Based entirely on the Michigan USA sourced Superlite SLC kit car, the evR450, like the recently announced Arcspeed Roadster, is being developed around locally sourced powertrain components from both Tritium and Ultramotive.
With a claimed 0-100km/h time of 3.8 seconds and 150 km range from a lithium ion battery pack, Varley plan to produce just “a handful” of EVR450 supercars with a price tag around the $200k mark. Electric Vehicles division manager John Bettini says the evR450 could be driving on Queensland roads as early as January 2012.
