New Automaker Elextra Announces All-Electric Supercar Capable of 0-62 MPH in 2.3 Seconds

Taking aim at Tesla.

By //Automotive

Swiss automaker Elextra has just announced its plans to launch its brand with an electric supercar later this year. The company plans to hand-build 100 models of the vehicle in Germany. Two electric motors will give the Elextra EV all-wheel drive with independent torque distribution to both the front and back. Although the top speed is limited to 155 mph, the car will do 0-62 mph in a ridiculous 2.3 seconds and will pack 680 horsepower, a direct aim at Tesla and its Model S P100D which broke the 2.3 second 0-60 mark earlier this year. Cruising at 62 mph, the battery will last for 373 miles.

The Elextra will cost between €400,000-€500,000 EUR, about $446,000-$557,000 USD and the company expects a working prototype by spring 2018 and is targeting potential sales starting in 2019.
