Video: Introducing the 1000 hp VOLAR-e

In September 2012 Applus IDIADA was chosen by the European Commission to develop an electric high-performance sports car, comparable to or even better than sports cars with conventional engines. The vehicle should also incorporate the latest technologies in electric powertrain, active safety and communication systems.

The prototype should help overcome the current technological and social barriers of electric cars and promote acceptance of electric vehicle technology by the public and the mass introduction of this type of vehicle into our society.

And here it is! The VOLAR-e with an astonishing 1000 hp. It is challenging the Rimac Concept One.

Powertrain:

Provide maximum motor power and torque to the vehicle (1000 HP, 1000 Nm)
Achieve fast-charging (15-20 minutes)

Vehicle dynamics:

Regenerative braking system
Aerodynamics
Independent power control for all 4 motors, iTORQ original by Applus+ IDIADA
