Taipei based EV powertrain supplier Xing Mobility has lifted the covers off of its rally-inspired 1000 kW supercar, the Miss R. With its four-wheel torque vectoring system, the Miss R is touted as the first electric supercar with both on-road and off-road capabilities.
Powered by four 350V motors and a 1-megawatt battery pack the Miss R has a claimed 0-100 km/h sprint in a time of 1,8 seconds and can reach 200 km/h in 5,1 seconds. These performance claims pit the Miss R squarely against the recently-announced Tesla Roadster, with the Xing tipped to reach market ahead of its US-built competitor.
In the business of EV powertrains R&D since 2015, Xing Mobility is at pains to ensure that its upcoming supercar boasts the best possible battery technologies. That said, the battery pack in the Miss R offers one of the highest power densities on the market.
The Miss R is said to have been developed to tackle a range of extreme driving experiences including hill climbs, track days and endurance events.
Seeking to use the Miss R supercar as a showcase of its abilities, Xing Mobility is looking to present a full range of modular electric drivetrain products at the forthcoming AutoTronics Taipei show.
