Avass tastes success in testing fully electric sports car

Vehicle will cover more than0 1000 km with single charge, company eyes India to set up largest operation in the manufacturing of EVs and batteries


AvassAvass, an Australian company, has given updates on latest developments into the electric car project. It said its fully electric sports car has achieved consistent performance tests of 1,160 km with a single charge. The product has been named Avass Prototype R800.

According to the company, it is an impressive 870 kg sports coupe delivering rapid response to rear drive via central High Performance Avass Motor.

The charging time of this ground-breaking innovation via a wall plug is 4 hours and with a Fast Charging Unit, it is fully charged from depletion in less than 40 minutes.

According to Dr Allen Saylav, Group CEO, Avass Group of Companies, “There has been a great focus on awareness about environmental protection which has given a major push to development trends in the EV industry.”

Avass has been exploring the huge potential of the global electric vehicle market for some time now. Our R800 Sports Car is highly suitable for countries like India that are demonstrating high potential in development of clean energy transportation infrastructure.

Performance tests

The performance tests have taken 11.6 hours to achieve 1,160 km with a single charge driven at constant speed not exceeding 100km/h. Avass R800 battery pack capacity is 120kWh and its energy consumption is 10.33kWh/100km with current capacity 112.41Ah.

The company had announced last year that it will be exploring opportunities of expanding operations in India and is viewing India as a key base to manufacture a range of full electric vehicles, including buses, cars, motorcycles, batteries and more. EVs like the R800 that achieve a larger distance with a single charge would definitely acquire larger demand. Many large B2B players in e-commerce, grocery, food, couriers have already been piloting EVs and some have moved to advanced stages of deployment.
