Venturi buys Voxan Motorcycles

Venturi have announced that they are taking over French motorcycle manufacturer Voxan and will move their production facilities into the same factory that Venturi produces the Venturi Volage in Sable-sur-Sarthe, France. Venturi produce very unusual electric cars and have made it clear that Voxan is to become a 100% electric motorcycle company with the first model being released in 2013. If Venturi is anything to go by the new Voxan bikes will be ludicrously expensive and very unique in the styling department. Stay tuned for updates. Lanjut →

The Venturi Volage

Love it or hate it the Venturi Volage is without question a sign of things to come. The styling of the car is said to have been “shaped by the wind” which I am assuming is fancy Monaco-talk for aerodynamic. The technological innovations in this car are quite significant though, with two electric motors per wheel (one for the suspension and one for power) the Volage also features touch screens inside that allow the driver to configure the car to their current whim. The projected range is about 200 miles (320 Kms) and it’ll drag you from 0-62mph (100 kmph) in 5 seconds, or at least it will in 2012 when the very limited production is set to begin in the teeny-tiny-principality of Monaco. And no, there is no price listed as yet although we fear the very sight of all those zeros would cause our eyes to bleed. Click through for more pics and the press release. Lanjut →
