The Elektron One will be a 1,341hp electric-supercar
It will cost less than a Ford GT!
The moment you hear the words "electric hypercar", you prepare your puny brains to be melted by the extravagant horsepower figures. Today though, we are talking about an electric "supercar". Place your bets then. Will it have less than or more than 1,000 horsepower?
If you said "more than" then you were right because the supercar we are talking about has 1,341 horsepower (or 1 MW, if you like to talk in terms of electrons). Welcome to the Elektron One.
Backed up by Germany-based company Elektron Innovativ, the Elektron One will have a Turkish heart that will be built in Italy. That's a nice combination, isn't it?
The Elektron One will be built in Italy's Motor Valley area which means that it will have noisy neighbours like Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Pagani.
Elektron Innovativ claim that "this car can be the electric supercar that many have been expecting for a long time".
Also working to form a Formula E team called Scuderia-E, Elektron Innovativ wants the development of the Elektron-One and Formula E car to take place side-by-side so that the supercar can be influenced by it.
The supercar will be four wheel drive having a push-rod suspension system and a composite monocoque chassis consisting of carbon, aramid and biofiber components. The battery cells will be embedded in the chassis.
"The Elektron was created to be a sports car brand, I don't think of making any 4-door model. If there is such a thought in the future, I can consider doing it under another sister brand. However, when it comes to two wheelers, I can consider seeing the Elektron logo on an e-superbike. That would be wonderful", said company founder Armağan Arabul. That means we might see an Elektron superbike? Sign us up!
While the car is only a render for now, Elektron hopes to launch it to the world at the 2021 Geneva Motor Show (if it happens) and aims to build 140 examples of the supercar every year with each car costing between €330,000 to €350,000. That's less than a Ford GT!
That's not all: the company also aims at building a spider variant, a track-oriented version and a hypercar with even more ludicrous performance. Yes!
