Thunder Power unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show today two new electric vehicles equipped with a massive 125 kWh battery pack.

Thunder Power is a Taiwan-based power-tool maker established in 1987, which recently changed its focus to electric vehicles. Its first entries are a 4-door sedan (picture above), the Thunder Power Sedan, and a sport car, the Thunder Power Race (picture below). The group’s all-electric sedan is designed by Zagato studio in Milan, where the company based its research and development team. The company worked with Bosch, Dallara and CSI to develop the EV platform for the cars. The main component of the platform is a massive 125 kWh battery pack made of cylindrical battery cells. Most of the industry is using large “pouch” cells, but Thunder is following Tesla’s lead with high energy density cylindrical cells.

The company expects to get a range of over 650 km (400 miles) on single charge.

Thunder aims at launching the sedan in Europe in 2017 and in China in 2018, followed by the US. The company has a manufacturing facility in Shaoxing, China, but it also plans to have manufacturing operations in Europe. The starting price in Europe is expected be €65,000 (~$73,000 US).
