When only fossil-fuel powered cars were around, the chances of a new auto company being set up were very slim. Since electric cars have become a thing, the number of organizations hell-bent on making such cars has however increased dramatically.
That’s probably because, at least in theory, it’s easier to put together an electric drivetrain than to create from scratch a combustion engine with so many moving parts. And this reality means countries that until recently had little or no car manufacturing tradition are joining the race.

Take Norway, for instance. The country has zero car making companies, and virtually no auto manufacturing industry whatsoever. But that’s about to change.

Taking its name after American futurist Jacque Fresco, Fresco Motors hopes to become the country’s first real carmaker. And it will make EVs.

According to InsideEVs, the car the company is working on is called Fresco Reverie, and we’re likely to see one in the flesh sometime in 2021. The vehicle looks eerily similar to a Tesla but promises to be much faster.

Not many details about the vehicle are known at this point. The battery will provide a “long-range” meant to cure the world of range anxiety, and it will be capable of fast- and wireless charging.

Most intriguing are the performance figures. The preliminary numbers provided by Fresco point to the machine being capable of reaching speeds of 300 kph (186 mph). As for acceleration time, that is rated at just 2 seconds. Most impressive.

There is much time left before those numbers can be confirmed by the actual car. We can only hope the company makes it, and the vehicle goes into production.

Norway is electric car heaven. In March 2019, 58 percent of all car sales involved EVs. In 2018, the market share of these vehicles was 31.2 percent, way higher than any other country in the world.
