Hypercars are the first and last test of automotive superiority. No matter what country they come from or which brand they belong to, the main goal always remains, blowing the competition away with superior performance.
Over the years we have seen quite a few displays of power from various brands who used heavy duty engines and cutting edge technology to break records and sign their own name in history.
This tradition is being continued, even after the advent of the electric car age, as we are seeing more and more companies shifting towards using electric technologies as a supplement for raw engine performance.
Now, Singapore aims to blast away the competition and give this electric movement a big push at the same time, through the development of their First Homegrown Electric Hypercar.
This car is being developed by a company called Vanda Electric and has been named the Vanda Dendrobium, which is also the name for a Singaporean orchid.
What makes this car special is the fact that it not only will be one of those rare all electric hypercars, but it will also shatters all electric car power records by aiming to produce 1,500 horsepower and 4,000 Nm of torque.
These astounding figures will allow the car to reach 0-100 km/h in just around 2.6 seconds, thereby easily catapulting it to the top of any car segment.
In order to achieve these almost impossible figures, the car will use between 90 and 100 kWh of batteries. When not being used for breaking acceleration records, this impressive setup will be used towards giving the car a range of around 400 km/249 mi and a top speed of around 400 km/h, although not at the same time.
We don’t know if this car will live up to it’s hype, but we will certainly wait for it’s introduction, which is slated for the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
