Supercar RG Nathalie or an electric car that charges in 3 minutesMarch 17, 2020
In total, only 500 copies of the German all-electric supercar with an ultrafast refueling system will be produced. The range of new items can be up to 1,200 km when driving in economy mode.
Back in 2018, Roland Gumpert, a former Audi motorsport director, introduced his revolutionary Nathalie model – a supercar that combines the clean energy of electric vehicles and the convenience of using fuel cells that are fueled with methanol (alcohol). The performance indicators of the new items were impressive for that time, right now, the engineer introduced a noticeably updated version of the machine.
The biggest feature of Nathalie is its unconventional energy system, which has received the designation 2Way. Each wheel is equipped with an electric motor, which in turn is powered by a battery located on the floor of the vehicle. The recharging process takes place in the form of a hybrid system through methanol (alcohol) fuel cells, which are located under the hood of the car.
As a result of a chemical reaction in the fuel cells, the main electric battery is recharged. The reloading process occurs even in idle mode, especially during acceleration and braking.
Thanks to this process, the innovative Nathalie self-charges, and the long recharge time of electric vehicles is reduced to a three-minute refueling of the methanol tank. Thanks to this, Nathalie has an impressive range of 821 km with an average speed of 121 km / h or up to 1,199 km in eco-mode.
With 536 horsepower (989 Nm), the RG Nathalie can “jump” from standstill to 100 km / h in just 2.5 seconds. The maximum speed will be 306 km / h.
Batch production of RG Nathalie is limited to only 500 units, with an estimated price of 300,000-500,000 euros
