Techrules Ren: The Upcoming 1,287HP Chinese Supercar


Techrules, a China-based automotive research and development company, unveiled the final production design of its first hybrid supercar at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The “Ren” is the first production vehicle from Techrules, and features the company’s proprietary Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle (TREV) technology. The aerospace-inspired exterior design is optimised for aerodynamic efficiency, with a striking modular three-cockpit form that has been crafted by world-renowned automotive designers, Fabrizio and Giorgetto Giugiaro. The car’s distinctive fighter jet-style canopy rises up to enable occupant access. The Ren also features futuristic elements such as the front laser headlights and ‘star-burst’ reversing LEDs.

The car’s series hybrid powertrain technology delivers unprecedented levels of efficiency and performance, and an ultra-low environmental impact. A variety of configurations will be available to tailor the powertrain to the exact requirements of the customer. The flagship version – with a battery capacity of 25 kWh and with two motors at the front and four at the rear – delivers maximum of 1,287HP with a range of 1,170 km from 80 litres of diesel fuel.

William Jin, the founder and CEO of Techrules, said: “Thanks to the unique modular design of the Ren chassis and powertrain, we have a perfectly engineered vehicle to deliver our TREV technology in the most efficient way, according to the exact requirements of the customer. Techrules is introducing a luxury electric supercar with great dynamic performance that is more environmentally friendly and more convenient than anything comparable on the market today.”

The Ren’s wow-factor is further enhanced by a refined interior that delivers fine luxury. The wraparound cockpit and passenger pod spaces are finished using the finest Italian leather (cuoio italiano and alcantara), with seat cushions finished in a denim produced by the high-end designer clothing company, PT (Pantaloni Torino).

The Ren also features a lightweight chassis that has been designed and constructed to the highest standards by esteemed motorsport specialist, L.M. Gianetti of Turin. The performance-focused modular layout allows the car to be configured with one, two or three polycarbonate canopies: one for track use by only the driver, two for the ‘Le Mans’ configuration with a single passenger, or three to accommodate the driver and two passengers.

The Ren is packed with new technologies, including advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and a variety of driving modes. Inside the driver’s cockpit, the centre of the steering wheel houses a self-levelling screen that displays performance-focused instrumentation while rear-view cameras feed three monitoring screens.
