We all know that electric cars are a better solution when it comes to the environment, but there is a very realistic chance that these cars will also overpower their petrol predecessors when it comes all around performance. Vanda Electric is a new company from Singapore that has the plan to create “Dendrobium” – a hypercar that will be able to produce up to staggering 1,500 horsepower and 4,000 Nm of torque.
This beast will supposedly be able to reach from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.6 seconds, which is completely extraordinary. Vanda Electric will have a little bit of help from EPTA Design, a company from London, England. EPTA will be responsible for the state of the art, carbon/aluminium body that this hypercar will have. The body is going to feature a super-low front grill and an open rear end that will have moving parts that will contribute to the overall aerodynamics of the car.
It’s now very obvious that fossil fuels just can’t match electric power when it comes to producing horsepower and torque. Electric vehicles are definitely the bright future of this planet and one part of that future is this hypercar that will be presented in Geneva, Switzerland in 2017. In case you’re wondering, the name Dendrobium comes from a Singaporean orchid. This car will be packed with 90-100 kWh batteries, providing it with a range around 249 miles (400 km).
Regarding the top speed, Dendrobium will be able to reach up to 248 mph (400 km/h). This electric car will be 5540mm long, 2270mm wide, 1100mm high and it will weigh somewhere around 1750kg (3858 pounds). This two-seater with twin doors will be powered by 4 electric motors. All the batteries and motors will be liquid-cooled during the ride.
If the Singapore company comes through with this ambitious project, this hypercar, could be the start of the inevitable demise of the traditional petrol engine supercar. Of, course, we’re a long way from knowing the price or the date when will this hypercar be available, but we are all looking forward to seeing this beast in Geneva next year.
