“There’s no point in saving the world if it means losing the moon.”
– Tom Robbins
Kronfeld Motors is a sustainable technology and motorsport company. With our proprietary tech, we engineer hybrid electric vehicles to utilize every drop of energy while delivering a high-performance, safe, and thrilling new driving experience. We’ve created the most efficient and most exciting car ever made.
And we’re just getting started.
We’re Daring Mighty Things
Currently, based on the battery and drive train in our alpha prototype, the Raht achieves approximately 390 MPGe highway, 188 city.
However, once our multiple energy recapture systems are fully developed and implemented into our production vehicle, our long-term goal is middle to high 400’s for highway, middle-high 200’s for city.
(Update: Currently in Phase 2, we’re vetting potential partners. If you’re a sustainably-minded investor, make sure to get in touch.)
To keep our company on the most sustainable path
possible, we anchor our aspirations to two main beliefs:
Kronfeld Motor Company will build its vehicles in the US, with US labor, US aluminum/steel, and as many parts Made in the U.S.A. as possible.
In addition to leveraging the most efficient energy sources available, we will use bio-composites in the fabrication of each vehicle’s body, interior, fit, and trim.
The Team. And the Vision.
We are a group of believers. We believe in beauty of design, beauty of engineering, and power with purpose. We love bikes and cars and combine our love of both with passion for a cleaner, more sustainable future.
We believe someday we’ll be able to drive anywhere, at highway speeds with the carbon footprint of a bike. Maybe not today, but someday soon.
…many, if not most of the great automobile companies were named after the founder/founders – Mercedes-Benz; Toyota; Ferrari; Aston-Martin; Duesenberg; Ford, etc. It’s in keeping with that tradition that I wanted to use my name, (it was also my friend, Andrew’s idea), but there’s more to it than that.
Kronfeld is a German-Jewish name and to my knowledge there has not been an automotive company with a Jewish namesake. Also it’s a poke in the eye to Henry Ford, who built a great car company, but was an avid anti-semite.
