Techrules, a Chinese startup introduces their new track-focused concept vehicle that could recharge on the move by using an on-board turbine. This is China’s first electric supercar.

Techrules’ concept vehicle describes this vehicle as China’s first supercar concept. It uses a micro-turbine to generate electricity and charges the car’s battery pack, which then drives the wheels. The car can travel up to 93 miles (149 kilometers) without having to recharge.

According to Techrules founder and CEO, William Jin “The TREV (Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle) system is a perfect combination of micro turbine and electric vehicle technologies. It is highly efficient, produces very low emissions and provides an optimal charging solution for electric vehicles.”
“We believe it may redefine how the next generation of electric vehicles is powered,” he added.

The turbine is powered by gasoline, but it could reduce emissions and improve efficiency for battery-powered vehicles.
“In the conventional cars that dominated the 20th century, the combustion engine that converts a fuel’s chemical energy into a useful mechanical energy is also the driving engine that turns the wheels,” said Techrules technology chief Matthew Jin.
