German automaker PG has teamed up with automobile designer Michael Fröhlich to create the Elektrus, a Lotus Elise-based electric vehicle that aims to be “an exclusive urbane e-Roadster with a powerful uniqueness factor.”

This futuristic-looking Roadster is supposed to have “above-average driving performance” while offering a range of around 215-miles in a vehicle that weighs in at less than 2,000-lbs thanks to some extensive carbon fiber and composite body components. Powertrain details weren’t mentioned in the press release however but PG claims it’ll hit 62-mph in under three seconds with a top speed of 155-mph and it’s believed that the Elektrus will have around 270-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.

The Elektrus can have its cells fully charged in about eight hours from a standard household outlet and will come at a hefty price. Based on today’s conversion rates, it’ll be around $367,700 including VAT.
