This Swiss supercar could aim to give a few models a run for their money.
There have been a lot of exotic, unique, electric supercars coming out lately. Newest to the game is from Swiss company Elextra, who plans on launching their brand with a supercar EV. The electric car will be pretty exclusive, as only 100 will be made.
The Elextra EV will be hand-built in Germany, and is set to be launched later this year. It will be pretty quick and powerful with two electric motors providing all-wheel drive, as well as torque independently distributed to the front and rear wheels to give better traction. With a horsepower of 680, the car will go from 0-62 mph in less than 2.3 seconds. Despite this, its top speed is limited to a mere 155 mph.
The EV is able to accelerate so quickly due to its excessive use of carbon fiber, which keeps it from being weighed down. With a cruising speed of 62 miles per hour, it can hold a battery charge long enough to give it a driving range of 373 miles. Designer of the Elextra EV, Robert Palm, says the cost of the vehicle could be anywhere between $445,000 and $556,000. If the company pulls this off, they could make another vehicle, maybe another supercar, but that’s way off in the future for now.
