techrules will reveal the production design for its high-performance ‘ren RS’ supercar at the geneva motor show 2018. the performance-focused supercar is a single-seat, light-weight variant of the ‘ren’ first previewed at last year’s geneva motor show. presenting a similar dramatic, aerospace-influenced design and fighter jet-style canopy, the ‘RS’ has been crafted by automotive designers fabrizio and giorgetto giugiaro.

designed for track use only, the techrules ‘ren RS’ has been honed for high performance racing by motorsport specialist l.m. gianetti of turin. the ren ‘RS’ can be configured with four or six electric motors – with the latter configuration featuring two motors at the front and four at the rear, delivering a maximum power of 960 kW (1,287 hp / 1,305 ps) to launch the car from 0-100 km/h in just 3 seconds, and on to a maximum speed of 330 km/h.



at the heart of the ren rs is techrules’ innovative turbine-recharging electric vehicle (TREV) powertrain. the patent-protected range extender system uses a turbine to drive a generator which rapidly charges the high capacity 28 kW/h battery pack, which combined with several proprietary technical innovations delivers an exceptional range of 1,170 km from 80 litres of diesel fuel.


matthew jin, chief technical officer of techrules, comments,‘this is an exciting phase in the growth of techrules, as we grow our global reputation by sharing the extensive knowledge and experience we have of using turbine technology to deliver unprecedented range capacity in electric vehicles. we are developing new proprietary technical innovations to deliver enhanced efficiency and performance in a range of applications – and with an ultra-low environmental impact.’
