Recently, manufacturer Elation Hypercars said they will produce a new electric supercar with a large capacity. According to the company revealed, the new electric car model will have a maximum capacity of nearly 2,000 horsepower.
There have been many electric car models being released Lotus Evija, Pininfarina Battista or Rimac C_Two … To participate in the new electric car era, manufacturer Elation announced that it is about to introduce a new supercar model, Elation Freedom.
In the next step, the company will release a test version called Dogo 001. According to Carlos Satulovsky, CEO of Elation Hypercars, the name of the prototype is taken from the Dogo Argentino. This breed is native to South America and is known for its beauty and strength. The car’s appearance is quite similar to the Hennessey Venom F5 supercar. However, the difference is that Freedom has a design of gullwing wings.
In terms of size, Freedom owns a size of 4,495 x 2,000 x 1,055 (mm) with a wheelbase of 2,000 mm. With the entire body design made of carbon fiber and chassis made of composite material, Freedom has a weight of about 1,635 kg. Supercar has a weight distribution ratio between the front and rear axles is 45:55.
Evaluation of performance, Elation Freedom uses 3 sets of liquid-cooled electric motors. The automaker also offers two versions with a performance of 1,427 hp and 1,903 horsepower, with torque up to 1,440 Nm. Vehicles equipped with CCS or J1772 fast chargers. The gearbox on the car is also designed and manufactured by Elation itself, with a single-speed gearbox at the front and a 2-speed gearbox in the rear.
Assessing the drive system, Freedom uses a full-time 4-wheel drive system capable of varying traction between two bridges. The suspension is made by Ohlins, which can vary the vehicle’s height according to the driving mode. The ground clearance in the standard mode is about 100 mm, but with the Race adjustment, the ground clearance is only 50 mm.
In terms of tires, the car uses Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 high performance tires with 285/35 ZR20 in the front and 345/30 ZR20 in the rear. The brake calipers are also produced by Brembo with 6 pistons on the front and 4 pistons in the rear. Elation Freedom uses a CCM-R carbon ceramic brake system, also manufactured by Brembo.
Another special feature, Elation not only focuses on performance but forgets the luxury of the car. CEO of Elation Hypercars said Freedom’s interior design “transcends human imagination”. It is a combination of premium materials such as carbon fiber, full-grain leather, and even gemstones.
Elation not only makes electric cars, but Elation also said that it is developing an Elation Iconic Collection version using an internal combustion engine. Specifically, the FSI naturally aspirated V10 engine block with a capacity of 5.2L will have a capacity of more than 750 horsepower at 8,250 rpm, maximum torque of 666 Nm.
Comes with this engine block is a 7-speed dual-clutch S-tronic gearbox and a full-time 4-wheel drive system. Elation Iconic Collection can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2.5 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 386 km / h. The other comfort and safety equipment on the car are similar to the Elation Freedom version such as size, suspension, brake system … However, Iconic Collection is about 300 kg lighter than Freedom, reaching 1,300 kg.
In terms of production time, the production of each Elation Freedom takes about 4,000 man-hours to build, and the automaker only produces about 25 a year. The price is expected to fall at about $ 2 million, while the version using the internal combustion engine Elation Iconic Collection can be up to 2.3 million.
