Taipei-based EV startup Xing Mobility unveils its new electric hypercar
Taipei-based electric-vehicle startup Xing Mobility has unveiled its new electric hypercar, and has compared the specification of the vehicle to Tesla’s next-gen Roadster.
Originally, Xing Mobility had introduced a working prototype of its hypercar -- ‘MISS R’ -- in 2017; close on the heels of Tesla’s unveiling of the Tesla electric Semi truck. Xing Mobility now claims that it has unveiled full-featured electric vehicle, which they have touted as the “world’s first electric supercar with on-road and off-road capabilities.”
Sharing the details about its new electric hypercar, Xing Mobility said that the car will boast a 1-Megawatt (1,341hp) powertrain equipped with 4 independent electric motors which will be powered by “one of the highest power density EV battery packs on the market.”
According to Xing Mobility, the battery pack of its electric hypercar will be a “4116-cell, 98-module battery pack.” The company also said that the battery pack system will be changeable, and the complete battery enclosure can swapped within 5 minutes.
With regard to the electric hypercar’s specifications, Xing Mobility said that the vehicle will take barely 1.8 seconds to accelerate from 0-100 km/h, as compared to Tesla Roadster’s 2.0 seconds to achieve the same acceleration. Though Xing Mobility has not disclosed the range of its hypercar, it has revealed that the maximum speed of the car will be over 270km/h.
