A Swiss company by the name of Elextra has revealed an electric supercar that professes to be the fastest accelerating car ever built.
The new car is being developed with cutting edge electric drivetrain technology looks on course to go on sale by 2019. The Elextra electric supercar will have dual-motor set-up and is claimed to be capable of 0-100km/h in less than 2.3 seconds with a top speed of 250km/h.
This is quicker than the Nio EP9 (2.7 seconds), Porsche Mission E concept (3.5 seconds) and Tesla Model S P100D.
The Porsche Mission E and Nio EP9 competitor is designed in Switzerland by Robert Palm, CEO of design house Classic Factory. The project also includes several other brands that are participating in their areas of expertise.
The neck-snapping performance of the Elextra is obtained by dual-motor powertrain that delivers a peak output of 670bhp. Also, another key feature is the lightweight construction. The body and internal structure of Elextra's car are constructed from carbon fibre.
Contrary to conventional supercars, Elextra's electric supercar features four doors and four seats. Additionally, it features an all-wheel-drive system generated by placing an electric motor at each axle.
"The idea behind Elextra is to combine pure lines reminding of the most exciting Italian supercars of the past, while being resolutely forward-looking thanks to its low, sleek and beautiful design, paired with today's most advanced technology," Palm explained.
Only 100 hand-built of the Elextra electric supercar will be available to buyers, and production will be managed by an unnamed vehicle manufacturer based in Stuttgart, Germany. It is expected to be priced in the range of 450,000 euros (Rs 3.2 crore approx).
