It’s a common assumption that with all the advantages an electric vehicle provides, a sacrifice must be made to the gods of horsepower. But that’s not necessarily the case, an no example better controverts that misconception than the rip-roaring Audi mod from German auto maker Schaeffler, called the 4ePerformance concept.

Though still a concept, the 4ePerformance casts aside any doubts that an electric vehicle can stack up to fossil-fueled monster. Internally engineered like a European race car, the Schaeffler car comes equipped with 4 Formula E traction motors, each sporting 220 kW of power. With their powers combined, these motors deliver a total of 880 kW, the equivalent of 1,200 horsepower. The four motors split the axles, half and half – two motors dedicated to the front axle and two to the back – forming a twin axle for an equal distribution. The car’s unique architecture allows for torque vectoring, meaning the car can vary the amount of torque dedicated to each wheel – making the ride even more dynamic.
