Vanda Electric Dendrobium
Vanda’s electric and automotive engineering company from Singapore has taken on a very ambitious project called Dendrobium. This project is supposed to bring to the market the meanest all electric hyper car. It seems that if Batman was looking for all electric version of his Bat Mobile then Dendrobium would be the perfect fit. To have the slightest chance of turning this ambitious project to reality, Vanda electrics teamed up with Williams advanced engineering to create a light weight carbon-fiber body for this two-seater hyper car. The body is supposed to provide incredible aerodynamics thanks to the all-electric drivetrain technology by Williams engineering as this hyper car will be capable to count up 1500 horsepower. With such technical specifications Dendrobium is expected to hit 0-100 in less than 3 seconds and drive at speed close to 402 kilometers per hour. Despite this performance characteristics Dendrobium should still manage to go close to 400 kilometers in a single charge which comes with a 100 kilowatt hour battery pack. Dendrobium then is the testament to the pursuit of concept design and assembly of the highest order but Vanda Electrics does want to leave this car on a concept level of development but plan to put it into limited production soon.

Faraday Future FFZero1
Faraday Future is one of the newest players in the electric vehicles niche but their first prototype car was an astonishing enough to create a quiet a lot buzz around this manufacturer, Faraday Future FF Zero1 is the electric sports car with unseen before performance characteristics with the total 1000 horse power output from four electric motors as the car takes just 3 seconds to reach 100 kilometers per hour and with nudge to 320 kilometers per hour. This EV is built on modular platform that is expected to be used by the company in other all electric production vehicle like sedans, SUVs, trucks and crossovers. This will be the competition to many giant manufacturers like Tesla, VW, Chevrolet and BMW.
This futuristic looking Quant FE sports car is being completed by the help of Nano Flow Cell technology that powers its electric motors. Nano flow cell technology generates electricity from the ionic fluid half positively and half negatively charged, the electricity is then transferred to four electric motors that power each wheel given a peak ouput of 1090 horsepower with a specially adapted automatic transmission.
