This 1,341-HP Electric On/Off-Road Miss R Supercar Is Quicker Than Tesla Roaster

When Elon Musk  revealed the world’s fastest production car last week, it wowed the automotive world and was hailed as the world’s fastest production vehicle.

But a Taiwanese firm,Xing Mobility has revealed a new car that could beat it.The Miss R 1,000-kilowatt (1,341-hp) electric on-road/off-road supercar will be able to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 1.8 seconds i.e a tenth of a second faster than Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster.

Powered by 4 independent 350V motors and hitting 200 km/h (124 mph) in 5.1 seconds, how long it takes last year’s Maserati Quattroporte to reach half that speed, and Miss R is expected to have a top speed between 270 and 300 km/h (168 and 186 mph).

Miss R’s battery pack can produce 1 Megawatt of power with 98 modules holding 4,116 cells.Rather than chase a fast recharging time,Xing Mobility took an alternative approach by adopting a highly efficient and lightweight battery swap system that allows the entire battery enclosure to be exchanged within 5 minutes.

The firm has already begun testing a prototype of the car, and says the next step will be high-speed testing the vehicle at full power, with a view of revealing the completed prototype in late 2018.

Xing Mobility plans to build just 20 of the limited-production cars, which they intend to make available for purchase in 2019 with a price starting at $1million USD compared to Teslas $200,000 (£151,000).

But the new Tesla Roadster might still come out on top in terms of acceleration as Elon Musk has already hinted a special option package will take the Tesla Roadster to the next level.
