GLM-G4 Turns on at 2016 Paris Auto Show

Upscale concept reboots as an exotic EV

Say bonjour to the beautiful, blue GLM-G4 EV concept from Kyoto, Japan, which made its debut at the 2016 Paris auto show with a white interior, four scissor doors, and proper supercar looks.

GLM is working with the Dutch design studio Savage Rivale, formerly the maker of the gas-powered Roadyacht GTS that made its own impressive debut a few years ago. It is touting the EV supercar as a place “Where luxury means quiet, powerful, and elegant.”

The zero emissions ride features twin electric motors, a multi-stage transmission, and looks a bit like a four-door Ford GT that wants to be powered by Tesla, minus “ludicrous” mode. GLM claims that the G4 can spirit four pampered passengers from 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds and on its way a top speed of 155 mph. To soothe the range anxious, GLM has given it a claimed range of approximately 250 miles.

“The twin motor system is coordinated to continuously calculate the road surface and allowing the driver to have access to the maximum traction. Amalgam chassis with light and stiff multi-merit package incorporates a chassis structure using the optimum materials,” the company claims.

That sounds amazing but GLM-G4 seems to be the reverse story of the recent Fisker Karma saga. Only time will tell if this beauty makes it beyond the international car show circuit. We hope it does and wish them the best of luck.
