Peraves E-Tracer wins Progressive Automotive X Prize

Peraves E-Tracer Automotive X Prize Peraves E-Tracer Automotive X Prize
We'd sure like to ride that thing...!

It’s a bit weird, a bit wild and even though it isn’t a motorcycle, the Peraves E-Tracer is probably interesting enough for most people who read Faster and Faster. It’s certainly fast enough – with 150kW (204bhp) and 220Nm from its electric motor, the E-Tracer can sprint from zero to 100km/h in less than four seconds and is electronically limited to a top speed of 240km/h. Derestricted, the E-Tracer could hit a top speed of 330km/h, claim its creators. And that’s not all – it also has a range of 300km, if you travel at a constant speed of 100km/h, after which you hit reserve – 30km at 80km/h. Impressive!

Apparently, we are not the only people who’re impressed with what the E-Tracer is capable of. This ‘thing’ has also won the 2010 Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE, in the Alternative Class (Tandem), beating more than 30 other entrants to claim its prize.
