The Dendrobium D-1 Electric has some serious performance figures!
Since its introduction at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, we haven’t heard much about the Dendrobium D-1, Singapore’s first ever hypercar. Creation designs weren’t reported at the time, however Dendrobium Automotive has now affirmed the D-1 will be worked in the UK. The idea as of late made its UK make a big appearance at the renowned 2018 Salon Privé plant party occasion.
Initially, the D-1’s plan was brought about by individual Singaporean firm Vanda Electrics before being additionally created by Dendrobium with assistance from Williams Advanced Engineering. Williams will likewise help handle creation.
Dendrobium guarantees the D-1 will convey 1,800 horsepower and 1,475 lb-ft of torque, yet insights about the battery pack are as yet being held under wraps. The hypercar’s electric range and charging times additionally haven’t been affirmed, however Dendrobium says the battery will be a lithium-particle unit. In the long run, Dendrobium needs to utilize strong state batteries for its in-house electric powertrain.
Two electric engines will impel the D-1 from 0-62 mph in 2.7 seconds previously the car achieves a top speed of more than 200 mph. As amazing as these specs seem to be, the Dendrobium D-1 still misses the mark concerning its electric hypercar adversaries, for example, the Rimac C_Two and Pininfarina PF0, which have more power and sub-two second 0-62 mph increasing speed times.
It will likewise be greatly substantial. Regardless of broad utilization of carbon fiber including the tub, the D-1 will tip the scales at around 3,858 pounds. While we presently know where the Dendrobium D-1 will be constructed, despite everything we don’t know when it will begin generation or where it will be sold. Amid the idea’s uncover, Dendrobium implied that the D-1 could dispatch in 2020, yet no refresh has been given. Concerning the impossible to miss name, Dendrobium is named after an orchid in Singapore, with the car’s back opening entryways and flip-up rooftop taking after the blossom’s petals.
“After a broad career in the supercar business, I can genuinely say that Dendrobium Automotive is a standout amongst the most energizing and future-centered organizations I’ve ever been included with,” Dendrobium CEO and Chairman Nigel Gordon-Stewart said. “We are structuring our own in-house all-electric power rain and we intend to utilize our own power stockpiling cells moving to strong state as and when the innovation is solid and fiscally suitable.”
