After its participations at the Challenge Bibendum in Berlin in May, and at the “24 Heures du Mans” in June, Volage was present on the 6th and the 7th of July 2011 on the racetrack of Alès, France, for the International Meeting on Green Cars. This event, under the high patronages of the French Republic Presidency and the Ministry of Foreign Trade, is a place of international debate between public and private partners. The Venturi Volage was exhibited on Venturi’s booth and made a few laps on the racetrack of the Pôle Mécanique Alès-Cévennes.
With 4-wheel drive and active suspension, the Venturi Volage has no equivalent. “Active Wheel” technology in fact incorporates 2 electric motors per wheel (1 for suspension and 1 for drive), ie. a total of 8 electric motors driven in real time by sophisticated electronics. The active electric shock absorber system allows for total adaptation to road surface and driving types. Thanks to its road holding, maneuverability and silent running, the Venturi Volage represents the ultimate in present-day automotive technology.
