The Rapide E is powered by an 800 V battery encased in a carbon and Kevlar housing that sits where the 6.0 liter V12 engine, transmission and fuel tank used to be. This battery system powers two rear-mounted electric motors that produce a combined target power output of just over 612 HP and a colossal 950 Nm of torque. The result: an agile, controlled and brilliantly smooth driving experience, made all the more comfortable thanks to RECARO's performance seats.
An ergonomic sitting position also means a comfortable position. With a range of smart functions and perfect seat contours that support your body, we make driving fun. This support is vital, as being behind the wheel forces you to sit passively – one of the worst possible positions for your body.
Depending on the route, driving style and road surface, factors like centrifugal force, deceleration and vibrations come into play. RECARO seats compensate for these factors with support and protection: an ergonomic, anatomically shaped seat structure, body-hugging contours, firm upholstery, side bolsters and finely-tuned adjustment options. We’re experts in ergonomic design. We know that human beings aren’t built for sitting down. Let alone for hours on end behind the wheel where switching for a better posture is not an option. Your seat needs to support your body and relieve the strain.
A RECARO seat is like a tailor-made suit. It fits perfectly, effortlessly underlining the car’s and driver’s personality by combining sportiness, the ultimate in functionality, premium quality and individual style. Only products made with passion and skill make you feel this special. Our seats are crafted to perfection using the finest materials and consistent down to the tiniest detail. That’s why they excel in sporty, dynamic driving.
RECARO – the heart of driving!
Design is more than just good looks. The design of a RECARO seat is an essential element. It means the inseparable combination of functionality, ergonomics, and aesthetics. And it’s all about the person in the seat: Form follows human. RECARO Automotive does not respond to short-term trends but rather to values such as functionality, safety, ergonomics and quality. New forms, innovative materials and special colors enhance the experience created by appearance, feel, acoustics and smells.
