With the dawn of electric supercars, traditional supercars manufactured by automotive giants have somewhat faded in the background when it comes to the ‘numbers game'.

Mirroring this trend, the Indian automotive start-up company, mean Metal Motors have built a 1,000bhp all-electric supercar that can run up to 700kms on a single charge. The 1000bhp Indian Supercar is named Azani and it is one of the most ambitious automotive projects of our country. Azani is also our country's first-ever electric supercar.

When viewed head-on, the MMM Azani looks as if the Lyken Hypersport had been reimagined by Tesla. It looks sharp at the same time looks clean with minimal lines and vents. Moving onto the sides, the MMM Azani looks very Italian with sleek lines that gently channel the air to the right places for various purposes. While the rear end reminds me of the Lotus Evija and the Lotus Emira with its rather large air exits.

The start-up company claims that the all-electric supercar will do 0-100kmph in less than two seconds, while the top speed will be over 350kmph. According to the start-up, their first-ever prototype will be built in the second half of the year 2022, and the completed version will be priced somewhere around Rs 89 lakhs.

Considering the price, the upcoming MMM Azani will be a complete bargain and the price to horsepower ratio also seems better than budget hot-hatches like the Volkswagen Polo GTI. To achieve this remarkable feat, the EV start-up company plans to manufacture the Azani in micro-facilities that will only cost one-fifth of a traditional manufacturing facility, this method will also help the company produce cars faster.

Sarthak Paul, CEO of Mean Metal Motors, said, "The current backdrop of switching over to electric vehicles in the country seems far away given the lack of infrastructure, though from a company perspective we feel that full electrification is just a couple of years away. Our sole purpose is just not to develop an electric supercar but to create an eco-system that helps increase electrification at a faster rate. India is way far behind in its production methods when compared to the west and we are here to change that."
