Electroengine AB, a swedish company has just released an electric converted Volvo C70 with three partners, the True Electric C70-TE4WDD.
The car performance are really breathtaking, it accelerates from 0-60 mph in less than 6 seconds, and hasa  top speed of more than 125 mph, with a range: up to 200 miles on a single charge. 
“We have already successfully completed several joint projects earlier during the year. We now feel it high time to demonstrate what our True Electric™ technology is really capable of, when comprehensively applied to a large high-performance car. With the generous support of Öresundskraft, Lunds Energi and Energihuset, we have been able to transform a Volvo C70 into a pure electric car, featuring the most advanced technologies. This has been possible by employing our latest battery and battery management technology, in combination with the world’s lightest (power-to-weight) and most energy-efficient electric motors and power electronics,” states Björn Karlström, Electroengine.

“This blistering performance is possible thanks to the 400 bhp available from direct drive engines connected to all four wheels, which deliver a gut-wrenching 650Nm of torque per wheel,” adds Mr Karlström.
“We even look forward to the winter, when we can test how our 4WDD and advanced torque vectoring technology can reduce braking distances, improve traction and enhance driving characteristics,” explains Electroengine’s Thomas Bergfjord.
The technology developed by Electroengine transforms the electric car into a modern high performance car,” notes David Börjesson, Energihuset Uppsala.
