From Venturi press: Thanks to its many innovations which have defined the main technical principles for electric vehicles to come, VENTURI thus changed mentalities and served as inspiration for the entire automobile industry, from small craftsmen to major manufacturers.
VENTURI has become a group, actively pursuing its development in several different sectors, from battery electronics to electrification of vehicles for large-scale production.
Endurance, speed, extreme conditions, the VENTURI GLOBAL CHALLENGES are real exploits at both human and technological level, fantastic adventures which have adopted the world as their testing-ground in order to demonstrate the superiority of VENTURI achievements, from Shanghai to Paris, on the Bonneville salt flats in Utah and, soon, in the Antarctic.
On the strength of its technological leadership based on 10 years of specialisation in electric propulsion, VENTURI is now presenting two highly sporty models in world premières : the new VENTURI FÉTISH and VENTURI AMERICA, both benefitting from the most advanced technologies currently available.
At the "Mondial de l'Automobile 2010", VENTURI is presenting a completely new FÉTISH, directly based on developments undertaken for VENTURI's World Records program in BONNEVILLE, USA (2009-2012) with the VENTURI "JAMAIS CONTENTE", the fastest electric vehicle in the world.
Rear spoiler, black headlight trims, "BONNEVILLE" colours and finishes recalling the decoration of the Venturi "Jamais Contente", the new FÉTISH does not, however, content itself with mere cosmetic retouching : a new motor, powerful new electronics, a new under- carriage, new batterie system, new design for the exterior, a new interior... In fact, all of its components have been reviewed to make this technological marvel a vehicle of true excellence.
With an output of over 300 HP for total weight of 1,225 kilos, 200 km/hr, and 0 to 100 in less than 4 secs, the FÉTISH has become a "muscle car", armed and ready for battle : above all, it is more than ever before the world's sportiest and most highly perfected example of an electric car.
With over 300 hp (+220 kW) and torque of 380 Nm, the VM300 is the most advanced electric motor ever designed for a car.
To get the very best out of such a motor, a new 54 kWh battery pack has been developed (LIV-10 Lithium Ion Polymer batteries) whose electronics (Battery Management System) have been entrusted to VENTEC, the leader in the field.
