Vanderhall Motor Works has shown its new Edison2 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Originally unveiled last year, the model is essentially a Venice which has had its turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine replaced by an electric powertrain that consists of a 30 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and two electric motors.
The front-wheel-drive model has a combined output of 180 hp (134 kW) and 240 lb-ft (325 Nm) of torque. This enables the Edison2 to accelerate from 0-60 mph in four seconds before hitting a top speed of 105 mph (168 km/h). Thanks to the combination of lightweight construction and a large battery, the model can travel in excess of 200 miles (321 km) on a single charge.
The Edison2 comes equipped with LED headlights and heated seats. The model also features an aluminum chassis, a composite body, and a handful of components sourced from General Motors. However, the model pays tribute to an electric vehicle developed by Thomas Edison and Henry Ford so it can be “painted any color the customer wants — so long as it is black.”
Vanderhall is currently accepting orders and pricing starts at $34,950. The first deliveries are slated to occur in the second quarter of 2018 and reservations only cost $250.
