Following in the footsteps of the Porsche 918 Spyder Hybrid and the Mercedes-Bens SLS AMG Electric Drive, still in development,  the  French manufacturer Exagon, announced a new green  sports car; the Furtive-eGT. Furtive is the French word for stealth.

Looking at it from different angles this sports car reminds me of a rounder more streamlined Lotus Evora.

Thanks to its carbon-fibre honeycomb structure, the car weighs a mere 1640 kilograms.

The final version, shown last week at the Paris Motor show, is a luxurious 2+2 sport coupe.

Power comes from a 53 kWh lithium-ion battery feeding two centrally located, Siemens-developed, electric motors.

The setup delivers a total of 402 HP.

Performance numbers provided by the manufacturer indicate a 0 to 100 km/hr sprint in 3.5 seconds while top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/hr.

Autonomy is said to be as much as 250 kilometres depending on your driving style and speed.

Increased Range
The Exagon Furtive-eGT electric motors can be helped along with an optional three-cylinder engine to recharge the battery.

This is similar to the Chevrolet Volt.

In this configuration, autonomy exceeds 800 kilometres.
