An electric car from a startup company could outperform the Tesla Roadster

Miss R is a prototype from startup XING Mobility. 4 electric motors produce 1 megawatt of power. Its the only electric car with on-track and off-road capabilities. Miss R is more than a supercar, it’s a proof of concept for XING’s technology. The following is a transcript of the video.

This prototype is quicker than Tesla’s quickest car. It’s called Miss R by startup XING Mobility. It’s a rally-inspired supercar with four electric motors. Together they produce 1 megawatt of power. Which is equivalent to 1,341 horsepower.

It’s the first electric car to have on-track and off-road capabilities. Four-wheel drive helps it tackle rough terrain. An advanced suspension system keeps the ride smooth. Miss R only has a top speed of 155 mph. But comes with impressive acceleration. The car is projected to do 0 to 60 in just 1.8 seconds. Which is one-tenth faster than the Tesla Roadster.

XING Mobility is challenging what an electric supercar can be. While Tesla has consistently wowed us with performance Miss R hopes to steal the show. Although it only has an estimated range of 167 miles Miss R’s battery can be swapped in just 5 minutes. The Tesla Roadster still boasts a 620-mile range.

Miss R is more than just a supercar. It’s an R&D platform. XING sees the supercar as a proof of concept for their technology. They have already integrated their power train technology and battery in city buses construction equipment, and more. XING Mobility plans to start orders for Miss R in fall of 2018.
