The Xing Mobility Miss R — Potential Tesla Roadster Killer?

By Abhinand

The Automotive world has yet to sink in the 1.9sec 0-100kmph acceleration of the Tesla Roadster. It is by far the quickest production car ever made. Or is it?

Xing Mobility, a Taipei-based startup, is working on a 1,341bhp monster of an Electric Supercar. What makes it stand out is that, it can perform well on-road as well as off-road. The car is AWD, thanks to the 350V motors on each wheel. Hence, the EV is capable of 'Torque-Vectoring'.

DriveSpark Thinks!
The performance claims of the Tesla Roadster took the world on fire and made a strong statement that EVs can offer both performance and range. With the Miss R's arrival, that statement will hold ground even more firmly. Maybe it won't be as practical and reliable as a Tesla, but still, it would be one great EV choice for both on-road and off-road.
