The electric engine of the Chreos is a unique one. Chreos hosts 4 electric motors, one for each wheel, which allow the car to generate 640 hp and 3246 lb-ft of torque. The car weighs 4850 lbs, making it one of the most lightweight cars of its class.

This allows the car to reach an electrically limited top-speed of 195 mph and an acceleration of 0-62 mph in less than 2.9 seconds. That is an awesome quality, even for non-electric vehicles.

Just by looking at it, you get a feel of the power and control that emanates from the Chreos. With a retro-styled superfast rear silhouette and a masculine front, the sedan radiates an aura of a masculine modern man. “Slick” is the word used to describe it by my 8-year old son, and I must say I agree.

The Chreos reveal three variants of the car by color: royal blue, gravel grey and midnight black. It seems the designers have avoided less masculine colors on purpose and it seems to be the smart thing to do. Less masculine colors might have taken away the appeal from power that these colors radiate.

Good for the environment

The best part of the Chreos is one that we haven’t even talked about yet: its battery. The Chreos houses a powerful pack of batteries that allows it to cover distances of up to 1000kms from a single charge. Even better, the Silex Chreos is the first car to feature the Silex Hypercharge technology, which can allow a full 100% charge in around 10 minutes.

Using a lithium battery variant with a modified cathode allows for rapid charging with a 10 minute burst of 10-15 thousand volts at a low current. Even in the case where such power is not available, the Chreos also features a second port for charging which can utilize the standard port found all over the world.
