Piech Mark Zero will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show

Piëch Automotive AG, the founder of which is the son of Ferdinand Piech Anton, will present the Mark Zero electric sports car at the Geneva Motor Show. The creators of dvuhdverki believe that this should be a car for purists in the era of global electrification.

The Piech Mark Zero electric car was developed in cooperation with the team of industrial designer Rea Stark Rajic. He developed a flexible platform that allows the use of any power plant – from internal combustion engines to hydrogen. At the motor show, a car with a purely electric power plant debuts, the traction batteries of which are installed in the central tunnel and above the rear axle.

Piech engineers used a new type of battery cell that emits less heat and does not require a bulky liquid cooling system. This allowed the Mark Zero mass to be kept at around 1,800 kilograms. The electric car mileage on the WLTP cycle is 500 kilometers. Anton Pih uses his own funds to finance the development, and the company itself has nothing to do with the Volkswagen Group.

Information about the “successor of the Porsche 911” with the proportions of a classic sports car appeared in the autumn of 2017. The company’s website said that later in the lineup will include a Grand Tourer, a four-seater sports car, a rear-engined coupe and a hypercar. Now we are talking about the crossover and premium sedan.
