Recently, the Somerset-based automaker fulfilled its promise to show the true look of its newest electric-powered hypercar called the Ariel Hipercar whose its name stands for "High Performance Carbon Reduction." 
The Ariel Hipercar is featured with a bonded-aluminum monocoque structure with removable aluminum front and rear subframes. (Picture from: ArenaEV)
This extraordinary electric vehicle is equipped with dual electric motors at each axle, and for each motor, it drives the wheels via a single speed transmission, by making a combined output of 1,180 hp and 1,342 lb-ft of torque.
Most of the Ariel Hypercar designs are intentionally made that way by considering the aerodynamic factor for drag efficiency. (Picture from: ArenaEV)
It is also stated that the power from this electric motor is supplied by a Cosworth 800V 62 kWh lithium-ion battery pack which is claimed to be able to provide a range around 250 km. Furthermore, the Ariel Hipercar is claimed to be able to accelerate from 0-96 kph in about two seconds, 0-161 kph in about 4.4 seconds, and can be driven to a top speed of 250 kph. Wow!
The Ariel Hipercar can accelerate to 161 kph in just 4.4 seconds with a maximum speed of 250 kph. (Picture from: Rodanesia)
As for the chassis, the Ariel Hipercar featured with a bonded-aluminum monocoque structure with removable aluminum front and rear subframes. Meanwhile, its suspension features double wishbones at all four corners with dampers supplied by Bilstein.
The Ariel Hipercar has the unique fins on the front wings reduce drag on the mirrors, the roof scoop supplies air to the turbine range extender, and the 'shark fins' at the rear aid stability and cornering. (Picture from: ArenaEV)
As reported by Autocar, the British manufacturer is also said to have developed a new power steering system to provide superior feedback to the hypercar driver. For those of you who may be interested in owning the Ariel Hipercar, the company also gave a good news, it will start producing it by 2024.
Unfortunately, information about the full specifications for this electric-powered hypercar has not been revealed yet, it will most likely be announced ahead of its launch, for the prices is predicted that it will be priced at around $1.120 million or Rp. 17.1 billion.šŸ˜Ž *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | AUTOCAR | ARENAEV ]

The newest electric-powered coupƩ Maserati GranTurismo Folgore started to reveal

~New EV~ Maserati, as one of the world's leading car marques, has always followed the prevailing trends in the automotive world, and recently the Italian marque has proven that again by giving a teaser video of its electric-powered sports coupƩ called the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore Full-Electric during the 2022 Monterey Car Week.
A teaser video of the upcoming Maserati GranTurismo Folgore Full-Electric while on driven by a stand-up comedian Sebastian Maniscalco in California during the 2022 Monterey Car Week. (Picture from: HarianNews)
The Italian company claimed, that the GrandTurismo Folgore is not just an ordinary electric car. For the reason it has extraordinary power reaching up to 1,200 horsepower, that's twice the power of previous Maserati cars. It could be said that the Italian trident-logoed automaker is seriously working on an electric vehicle (EV) model to be launched in the near future, which reportedly its global premiere soon in the next 2023.
Although the Maserati GranTurismo Folgore Full-Electric's powertrain is unrevealed yet, the automaker said that it has extraordinary power reaching up to 1,200 horsepower, that's twice the power of previous Maserati cars. (Picture from: DCNewsNow)
From its appearance, as we can see in general that Maserati's first EV carries a coupƩ typical design such as another GranTurismo cars of their-owned featured with some details inspired by the previous Maserati MC20, ranging from the more upright look headlights, thin brakelights, to the three-spoke rims that adorn the legs.
The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore Full-Electric has some design cues taken from the Maserati MC20 such as more upright look headlights. (Picture from: Carscoops)
In addition, the most prominent right at the door is the Maserati emblem livery with each end of the trident accented in accordance with the colors of the Italian flag (green, white and red) as well as on the front hood but with a larger size. If the design still tends to be the same as the previous cars of their-owned, another main attraction presented by Maserati on the GranTurismo Folgore is its powertrain.
The Folgore badge above the three holes on the side gills betrays the electric nature of the underpinnings, as with the lack of exhaust pipes at the back. (Picture from: Carscoops)
But until now the Italian automaker is still coy to provide details of the powertrain which is said to be capable of producing up to 1,200 horsepower. Well, as the company confirmed, by using such power the GrandTurismo Folgore able to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) in 2.6 seconds, the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.7 seconds, and reaches a top speed of 200 mph (320 km/h).
The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore Full-Electric uses three spoke rims to support its legs similar to one used on the MC20. (Picture from: Carscoops)
Besides that, so far the trident logoed automaker has also mentioned that the batteries are located in the central tunnel for lower ground clearance. When plugged to a fast charger, the battery will replenish enough juice for 100 miles (161 km) of range in 10 minutes. Although there has been no explanation regarding the other specifications of the powertrain in detail, the GranTurismo Folgore is also rumored to be using the inverter technology developed by Maserati for Formula E racing cars.
The Maserati GranTurismo Folgore has similar proportions to its predecessor, combined with even sexier curves, and modern styling touches. (Picture from: Carscoops)
Meanwhile for the interior, as we can see clearly from the video,  the cabin in 2+2 configuration with seats that are given a touch of a combination of white and blue. The Italian car manufacturer said that the materials used for this car's interior arrangement used a special fabric made of recycled nylon. As for the headroom, it looks quite adequate even though it looks narrow at the back. Unfortunately, Maserati is still reluctant to reveal the dashboard, they will likely reveal it at the official premiere later.
Apart from the planned presence of its first EV,  Maserati also confirmed in its official release at the same time, that promised to offer electric versions of all its production car models by 2025. So after the GrandTurismo Folgore launches in the next 2023, in the same year followed by the electric versions of Grecale crossover and Grancabrio, then the electric variants of the MC20, Quattroporte and Levante in 2025. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MASERATI | ROADANDTRACK | CARSCOOPS | AUTOBLOG ]

Cadillac Celestiq EV concept is an awesome electric flagship

~Next EV~ Even if there are a number of world-renowned automotive manufacturers who coincidentally launch their newest electric vehicle concept this year, it can be ascertained that this is not because they are talkative or just following the current trend of electric-powered vehicles.
The Cadillac Celestiq EV, which is said an innovation for the latest electric car that offers a number of advanced technological features. (Picture from: Tempo)
Because indeed they have long conducted study, research and made so many new breakthroughs in order to present electric car products. In short, this time, one of renowned American brand Cadillac, presents the Cadillac Celestiq EV, which is said an innovation for the latest electric car that offers a number of advanced technological features.
The Cadillac Celestiq EV, which is said an innovation for the latest electric car that offers a number of advanced technological features. (Picture from: Tempo)
For example, the Cadillac Celestiq was the first vehicle to offer a sunroof glass with suspended particles called Suspended Particle Device (SPD) allows four zones of variable illumination made each passenger could be set their own level of personalization. This technology is something new, where the glass are basically slipping small particles in between two glass panels. From there, an electric charge can be sent through the glass which coats all the dark particles, making them more opaque or less opaque.
The Cadillac Celestiq EV will be composed of more than 100 of 3D printed components and also be equipped with the latest Ultra Cruise features of hands-free-on-the-highways driver assistance. (Picture from: Tempo)
Besides being equipped with such advanced technology, this Celestiq EV is built on GM's Ultium platform. One of the advantages is in terms of dimensions, where this electric car comes with dimensions that are not so wide. Meanwhile, in terms of capabilities, most likely that the Celestiq EV carries Ultra Cruise technology, the next evolution of the already excellent GM's Super Cruise, so the Cadillac Celestiq EV has the ability to cover a distance of 400 miles, and also equipped with a 350 kW fast charging feature, coupled with an advanced autonomous driving.
The Cadillac Celestiq EV builds on GM's flexible Ultium EV architecture, which has advantages in terms of dimensions, where this electric car comes with dimensions that are not so wide. (Picture from: Tempo)
“The Celestiq's exterior and interior are designed to reflect a holistic vision of American luxury. With the Celestiq, we have taken the craft to a higher level, allowing us to add an element of beauty to the cabin," said Cadillac's Interior Design Manager, Tristan Murphy. Although it's still in the concept stage for a while, the exterior and interior designs take inspiration from classic cars such as their V16-powered pre-war classics and the 1957 Eldorado Brougham.
The Cadillac Celestiq EV will feature many advanced technologies such as a smart glass roof device made of suspended particles. (Picture from: Tempo)
"These vehicles represent the pinnacle of luxury in their respective eras, and help make Cadillac the world standard," said Tony Roma, Cadillac's Chief Engineer. "The Celestiq comes in sedan form, as its configuration offers the ultimate in luxury experience that builds on that pedigree and captures the spirit we wanted to express."
Reporterdly, the Cadillac Celestiq EV will not be produced on a large numbers, only less than 500 units per year. (Picture from: Tempo)
The interior may be even more astonishing than the exterior. "We combine the beauty of function with the beauty of form," says Laetitia Lopez, Cadillac's Color and Trim Creative Designer. "We had to reconsider all aspects to immerse the customer, all their senses, and create a connection with the vehicle through the finest original materials, extraordinary details and state-of-the-art technology."

The Celestiq EV's cabin looks impressive with its massive 55-inch-diagonal state-of-the-art LED display, which is just an inch smaller than the Mercedes Hyperscreen but delivers more screen. Cadillac says the 55-inch screen allows passengers to watch video content with an electronic digital blind feature, which prevents drivers from seeing it from their point of view. That's not the only screen, as there's also a screen on the console, a door-mounted screen for the rearview camera, a screen on the rear console, and two screens on the front seat backs.
Finally, on July 22, 2022, the Cadillac Celestiq EV made its first debut, which the automaker claimed that the car is their future flagship electric sedan. However, there is still not much news related to the production of the Cadillac Celestiq EV, the American manufacturer promises this car will be the most sophisticated vehicle available to date, and reportedly the production version will be sold for $300,000 (Rp. 4.49 billions). *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CADILLAC | CARSCOOPS | CARANDDRIVER ]
