Boutique German Carmaker Artega Comes Back From Bankruptcy with 400-HP EV

After filing for bankruptcy in 2012, German automaker Artega is back with an all-electric vehicle.

First established as a niche sports car manufacturer for the European market, Artega had Henrik Fisker pen its GT sports car that debuted with either a V6 engine or an electric powertrain. The company then ran into financial issues, filed for bankruptcy and ultimately merged with German supplier Paragon.

Earlier this month, Artega had a surprise resurfacing at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show with the Scalo coupe that has been inspired by the original GT but updated bumper to bumper. This time around, Artega plans on offering the Scalo coupe with an electric powertrain only, sporting 400 horsepower and 575 pound-feet of torque.

According to the German automaker, the Scalo can go zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and will have a limited top speed of 155 mph. Artega estimates that owners will be able to get up to 250 miles on a single charge. The car also tips the scales at 3,494 pounds, thanks to a polyurethane and carbon fiber body.

The Scalo is now available for order in Europe, but there is no word if Artega has any plans to expand to the U.S. market.
