eRUF Greenster

RUF has developed the eRUF Greenster with Siemens Corporate Technology. The eRUF explores many of the themes being investigated by automakers such as fewer C02 emissions and electric propulsion. eRUF does something quite new in that it is fitted with a bi-directional network connection that not only allows its battery to be recharged in less than an hour on a 400-volt power outlet but also lets the car return energy back into the power network if needed. The system is called eDrive. The Greenster has a motor that pushes out 270kW (362hp) and stomping torque of 950Nm. This propels the 1,695kg (3,737 lbs) car from 0 - 100km/h in about 5 seconds reaching a top speed of 250km/h. RUF says using a bigger battery block top speed can be increased to 320km/h. When it is time to stop the 19-inch five-spoke wheels large ceramic brakes are on call. Going green has never been so flossy! Check out more pics after the jump.
