MILAN -- Aehra Automobili, an Italian startup, is seeking to bring to market a lightweight, full-electric crossover with a potential range of 800 km (498 miles) by 2025.
The SUV was shown as a static concept this month in Milan. The 5100-mm long car is similar in length to a large premium crossover or SUV, but is just 1640-mm tall and would weigh less than 2 metric tons in production form, Aehra says.
The concept was designed by Filippo Perini, whose previous jobs were at Alfa Romeo, Lamborghini, Italdesign and Genesis.
It has butterfly doors, similar to those used in the BMW i8 plug-in hybrid sports car, and a carbon-fiber monocoque body.
