THE TESLA-KILLER CONCEPTDate: 2017-12-11
Designer Dejan Hristov calls it the "Tesla Killer", but it is in fact, still only a Tesla. Hristov actually aimed to replace the current Model S by giving it a few far-out features and a boost in range and power.
Aesthetically, it is arguably less refined than the existing Model S, and almost appears to have an aftermarket body kit with exaggerated fenders and design details like a continues line break that encircles the entire car. The entire roof of the concept design is a solar panel that provides supplemental charging power to the car's battery system.
Under the hood, it sports Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors with a maximum power output of 255kw each, producing a solid 1367 horsepower which is almost double that of the current top-of-the-line Model S!
For enhanced aerodynamics, it completely ditches the side mirrors for hidden cameras that give a more comprehensive view of surroundings. Perhaps the most interesting feature is the digital nose; it does not only display the Tesla logo on a screen, but it indicates real-time road conditions to passing drivers.
A snowflake might indicate snow ahead while a caution symbol could indicate a crash. It’s a cool twist on the front end that we’d love to see come to life!
