A new supercar called Elextra that is developing cutting-edge technology of the electric transmission expected to go on sale by 2019, at a price of about â‚¬450,000.
The Porsche Mission And and Nio EP9 rival is designed in Switzerland by Robert Palm, ceo of the house of Classic design of the Factory, but the project involves several other brands that are helping in their respective areas of expertise.
Even if it is still in the development phase, the four-door, four-seater, is confirmed the use of a dual electric motor all-wheel-drive powertrain with the technology that avoids the need for the cooling system.
Its engines are said to be half of the traditional ones, but they still produce a combined 670bhp, enabling a 0-62mph of less than 2.3 sec.
This would be the fastest model-brand to the current fastest accelerating car sales, the Tesla Model S 100kWh, more than a second faster compared to the Mission and and four tenths faster than the EP9. The maximum speed will be limited to 155 mph.
The Tesla Roadster is set to beat that figure is said to be good for a 1.9 sec 0-60mph time – but it will be lighter, two-door model.

The Elextra of the drive system is said to be capable of independently adjusting power to the front and rear motors to increase the agility and traction. The car is also said to be able to campania 373 miles per charge, the top of the side of the Mission And of the above-mentioned range.
The machine uses carbon fiber for its structure, the body, and wheels to keep the weight to a minimum. The use of electric motors frees up enough space for the rear seats as a 400-litre boot is 30 litres more than a McLaren 570GT able to offer, even if, of course, the Elextra will have a large global impact.
New images of the Elextra design have been released, showing the steeply angled hood, with slim headlights, a wide shoulderline and the roof line is elongated. On the back, a V-shaped wing hangs off the roof and extends to the sides of the car.
Palm has confirmed to Autocar that this wing “carries as much downforce as a normal wing”, but that its unique shape meant not to obstruct the view through the rear window. “This is a supercar you can see the back of,” he said.
The Elextra project was used to advertise a new technology of different brands, but Palm could not reveal which companies, and what new systems are included in this phase. “This is not just another electric car project,” he stressed.

If development goes to plan, of 150 cars are scheduled for production, built by a yet-to-be-named the German production company with its headquarters in Stuttgart. Palm has revealed that the car is designed to have a price between ofâ‚¬400,000 to â‚¬ 500,000″.
Currently, there are no plans to produce more models as well the first production, but the Elextra mark could follow the example of Nio and produce more mainstream electric cars, Suvs, and sedans, if the supercar is a success. “We may even produce a second generation of the supercar,” added the Palm of the hand.
