The Vanda Electrics Dendrobium made its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show. On first look, it appears like the waiting was justified, and that’s because, simply in terms of its effective performance statistics, this is truly a hypercar.
The Dendrobium spans the 0-100 km/h dash in 2.7 seconds and a leading speed that will grant it spot into the 200 mph club with ease.
“Dendrobium is the climax of a dream. Our design group has had sketches of an electric hypercar on the drawing board dating back to the mid-90s, but that imagination was many years ahead of its time. As electric technology has propelled, we had the ability to revisit this vision,” stated Larissa Tan, CEO of Vanda Electrics.
There’s only one catch. The carbon fibre and composite vehicle, finished with flat aerodynamic floor, twin rear diffusers and F1-motivated exposed wishbone association is still officially a concept and the Geneva Show reveal is the opportunity for possibly interested parties to pass judgment and successfully get the car heading for a 2020 production year. “We are aiming to seeing the world’s reaction to Dendrobium. This electric hypercar could just be a concept for now, however we have every intention of bringing it into manufacturing. It sits at the top of our range and the production version will be a adjusting showcase for the best in design and e-technology,” stated Tan.
That e-technology will consist of inboard electric motors on every axle, a single speed gearbox handling output to the front and a multi-speed gearbox and differential at the rear and a vehicle that even when loaded full of lithium batteries will tip the scales at only 1,750kg.
