Taiwanese design and engineering house Studio X-Gene had their Avant GT on display in Shanghai, the AVANT was a styling and engineering exercise by the company to display their design talent and capabilities to a mainland Chinese audience. The Avant GT is a pure electric sports grand tourer with a mid mounted motor primed to rock the four door sedan to electric prime time. The weight distribution has been laid out perfectly with 49% being distributed over the front, and 51% over the rear. The spaceframe is an all alloy system which provides light weight architecture and has also saved a considerable amount of space for the battery packs, amazingly weight has been kept down to 1600kg which is impressive for a vehicle of its size. The car measures in at (LxWxH) 4550mm by 1820 by 1507 and has a wheelbase of 2820mm which puts on par with most mid size sedans on the market today.

The motor will power the rear wheels to a top speed of 140kph and has a cruising range of 130km, the 0 to 60 time is not that impressive at 11 seconds but is more than enough for 90% of drivers on the roads.
