Singapore-based Vanda Electrics, which previously produced lightweight electrical equipment and batteries, reported the creation of an all-electric hypercar, named Dendrobium.
An electric car, named after one of the orchid species, was created in cooperation with the Williams Advanced Engineering company, which was actively working in Formula E, which developed the power plant and transmission. However, the external and internal design of the hypercar is completely created by Vanda Electrics specialists.
The main external features of the novelty are the aerodynamic bottom, the double rear diffuser and the front divider. The rear light panel swims over the body, further enhancing the similarity of the electric car with the motorcycle. Contribute to this and double-arm suspension.
Also the topic of motorsport develops the materials used. The body of the car is a carrying monocoque made of carbon fiber. Supercar Dendrobium is equipped with carbon-ceramic brake discs and brake calipers of light alloy.
Carbon fiber is widely used in the interior decoration of the electric car. The interior is extremely minimalistic, but at the same time very functional. On a common black background, bright red chairs immediately appear in the eyes. They are quilted and look like muscular tissue.
Information on the technical characteristics of electric vehicle has not been disclosed. However, one of the first models of the company, which had a claimed capacity of 1500 liters, was previously presented. from. And a torque of 4000 Nm.
The maximum last prototype of the Singapore hypercar is 321 km / h, and up to 100 km / h it will accelerate in 2.7 seconds. The beginning of mass production is planned for 2020.
Head of Vanda Electrics Larisa Tan said: “Dendrobium is the embodiment of a dream. Our design team had its sketches back in the mid-90’s, but at that time such a car was too ahead of time. Only with the development of electrical technology, we were able to return to these sketches. Now it’s time to develop and launch a global strategy for the use of electric vehicles.
