By designing the most powerful electric vehicle in the world, Venturi Automobiles optimizes energy efficiency, one of the century greatest challenge facing not only the automobile industry, but society at large. This approach is also what led Venturi Automobiles to the FIA Formula E championship to support a team, Venturi Formula E Team and, to be a manufacturer for season 2 (2015/2016) and onward. “In both cases we have to work on our technological innovation’s application to energy management and efficiency, both of which are the key influencers of performance and range. The Venturi VBB-3 has been ready for two years and now has the chance to demonstrate its incredible potential" (Nicolas Mauduit, CTO).
This program pays homage to Camille Jenatzy who, on April 29, 1899, became the first person in history to break the 100 km/h (62 mph) barrier. Just like Jenatzy, in his electric vehicle nicknamed the ”Jamais Contente” (Never Satisfied), Venturi is breaking benchmarks previously held by piston, diesel and petrol engines.
