A collaboration between the Singapore based Vanda Electrics and Williams Advanced Engineering resulted in the development of the all-electric Dendrobium hypercar. It was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
Williams Advanced Engineering, also known for is supply of batteries is Formula E, provided its technical expertise. The Dendrobium was built at Williams’ facility in Grove, utilising its core capabilities in aerodynamics, advanced lightweight structures, electrification, vehicle integration and low volume production.
The fully electric sports car concept is a high performance halo project for Vanda Electrics, targeting a top speed of over 200mph and should complete 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds.
Speaking about the project, Craig Wilson, Managing Director of Williams Advanced Engineering, said: “We were delighted to be a technical partner for the development of Dendrobium. With this project, Vanda has really pushed the boundaries of automotive design and Electric Vehicle technology. As technical partner we were able to utilise our core capabilities to deliver the concept and look forward to its reception in Geneva.”
“We are looking forward to seeing the world’s reaction to Dendrobium. This electric hypercar may just be a concept for now, but we have every intention of putting it into production,” added Larissa Tan, CEO of Vanda Electrics.
“It sits at the top of our range and the production version will be a fitting showcase for the best in design and e-technology.”
