One of the Most powerful Electric cars

The number of electric supercar concept car seems to have grown in recent years. However, many believes that electric cars can not pull out a large force. It turns out that the assumption was wrong, because this electric car is capable of producing power up to 800 hp.

Volar-E, that's the name of the electric car that has great power. The car is built by the Spanish engineering firm, Applus + IDIADA who have been selected by the European Commission last year to build and design a vehicle that has high performance and harnessing electricity as driving source.

For the manufacture of the car itself, the company worked closely with a Croatian electric car manufacturer company, Rimac. Volar-E itself is built in three months by using carbon fiber for the body that is built on a tubular chromium-molybdenum chassis. Not only that, the Volar-E also will integrate the 4WD system combined with regenerative braking on the carbon ceramic brakes, thus allowing the car to store and collect energy.

From a technical perspective, Volar-E uses Rimac's battery that has a voltage 640V with a capacity of 38 kWh. The battery will supply energy to the four electric motors at each wheel, and together will produce a maximum power of 800 hp and torque of 1,500 Nm. The Volar-E's lithium-ion battery pack can be charged in less than 20 minutes.
Volar-E have managed through a number of tests conducted at the Circuit de Catalunya, which was attended by, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the European Commission, Sebastian Salvado, President of the RACC, and Carles Grasas, CEO Applus + IDIADA. And this electric car can reach speeds of 100 kph (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and an electronically governed top speed of 186 mph (299,34 kph). *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ECOCHUNK | GAS2 | PLUGINCARS}
