The popularity of electric cars has sky-rocketed with Tesla being the head honcho of the uprising. Tesla has a big red target on its back as the corporation to beat and a new Norway auto manufacturer is looking to give Elon Musk’s company a challenge with the Fresco Reverie Electric Car.
Named after American Futurist Jacque Fresco, Fresco Motors will be Norway’s first carmaker. The Fresco Reverie electric vehicle seems to be inspired by the design of Tesla cars with its smooth, minimalist silhouette. According to Fresco Motors, the machine will be able to reach speeds of up to 186 mph and can hit 62 mph in an impressive two seconds flat. It will have a four-speed automatic gearbox with overdrive power by an electric AC induction motor and a modular battery that operates similar to a drawer. So, is the Fresco Reverie going to deliver upon its promise to be faster than the Tesla? We’ll have to wait until 2021 when the Norwegian company builds the first Fresco Reverie.
