The Exagon Furtive-eGT is a four-seat electric grand tourer sports car produced by Exagon Motors. It was unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show as a concept.[1] A slightly amended pre-production version was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2013.[2]

The Furtive-eGT has two electric water-cooled motors that spin at 10,000 RPM and a three speed semi-automatic transmission bringing it to a top speed of 155 mph. Each of the Exagons' motors develops 148 kW, producing a maximum output of 402 hp. This car delivers an acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.5 seconds. The lithium-ion battery has 53 kWh capacity providing a claimed range of 360 kilometers (223 miles) in the city, without memory effect and highly recyclable and a minimum capacity after 3,000 cycles (approximately 10 years of use) of over 80%.

Exagon says it used Formula One technology to develop the chassis, which consists of a carbon fiber/honeycomb structure monocoque to which cast aluminium subframes are attached. The body of the Furtive-eGT is also made from advanced composite materials and weighs just 273 pounds.[3]
