At the 2012 Paris Motor Show French Exagon Motors has presented the Furtive-e-GT, a 2+2 electric GT with a carbon fiber body and frame.


Furtive-eGTWith the Furtive-eGT project, French company Exagon Motors aims at combining sustainability with high performances with real day-to-day drivability.

The car is equipped with an all-electric drivetrain, featuring two Siemens motors – each delivering 148 kW – a three-speed gearbox and a 53 kWh Saft Lithium-ion battery.

The extensive use of carbon fiber for both the frame and the body allowed to keep the total weight below 1,650 kg, a value mainly due to the large battery pack.

The drivetrain offers a choice of four driving modes: Eco mode (maximizing the car’s range), City (optimised for low speeds, with the emphasis on smooth driving, Standard and Sport.

Depending on the selected mode, the 12-inch digital dashboard adapts its configuration and graphic layout to show the relevant information to the driver.

The exterior design is mainly based on aerodynamic efficiency. The proportions are defined by minimal overhangs and a very low profile, with sculpted, flowing lines starting from the hood, forming the arched roofline and extending to the C-Pillars.

Among the aerodynamic-driven elements are the air outlets in the back section of the roof, which give it a “double-bubble”-like appearance and show reminiscences of modern jet fighters.

Additional interest to the graphic look is provided by a number of elements which leave the carbon-fiber exposed: from the front and rear diffuser to the rear section of the roof – including the C-Pillars and the e side mirrors.

Thanks to the torque of 516 N.m, delivered between 0 and 5,000 rpm, the Furtive-eGT sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 km/h. The range is 360 km, and the battery has a quick charging time (80%) of just 32 minutes.

Furtive-eGT RenderingInside, the Furtive-eGt features an infotainment system developed in partnership with Nokia including a 9-inch central capacitive touch screen.

The system comes with a SIM card enabling a continuous dialogue with the manufacturer, particularly for technical self-diagnosis data, emergency calls or weather bulletins. It is also equipped with a USB connection, an auxiliary socket and the Bluetooth streaming function.

    Nice design with a lo t of personality. I like it. Hope electric batteries (and fuel cells) become the real alternative for our cars. The World will appreciate it.

    As often happens with startups, you can spot dozens of details borrowed from more famed carmakers on this car. But the overall thing does not look special, with its FWD coupè proportions it reminds me a Mitsubishi Eclipse. Maybe it’s better in the metal (whoops carbon)..
