The vehicle you see here was hand built and comes with an aluminum monocoque chassis, being powered by twin carbon ironless core AC motors. These were custom-made by Ultramotive Technologies and use Tritium’s Wavesculptor inverters.

Energy comes from a 24 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that manages to offer a driving range of up to 100 miles (160 km). A full charge takes eight hours using a standard 15A outlet, with the carmaker working on a fast charge system.

The Varley evR-450 needs 3.8 seconds to complete the 0 to 62 mph sprint and comes with a top speed of 112 mph (180 km/h). The company also offers a second version, which comes with inferior performance, but still manages to impress, posting a 0 to 62 mph sprint time of 4.6 seconds and atop speed of 100 mph (160 km/h).
