Taiwan's Xing Mobility is not interested in becoming a car manufacturer. It just wants to prove the performance and reliability of its electric powertrain system.
They have chosen to demonstrate its prowess with an absolutely ludicrous experiment – a 1,000 kilowatt (1,341 horsepower) electric on-road/off-road supercar called the Miss R.

Using four-wheel torque vectoring, the Miss R promises to accelerate from 0-100km/h in just 1.8 seconds, which would see it pipping the 2020 Tesla Roadster by a 10th of a second and absolutely annihilating anything short of a purpose-built dragster from the internal combustion world.

Reaching 200km/h will take about 5.1 seconds, which is how long it takes last year's Maserati Quattroporte to reach half that speed, and Miss R is expected to have a top speed between 270 and 300km/h.
With ultra high-performance electrics, heat becomes a huge issue, and Xing has safeguarded its battery packs from overheating using a unique liquid cooling system. Xing has created Lego-like stackable modules each containing 42 lithium-ion cells and packed 98 of them into the car for a total of 4,116 cells. All these are immersed in 3M's Novec 7200 engineering fluid, which is totally non-conductive, great for heat transfer and also happens to suppress a fire.

Miss R is currently undergoing initial testing. The next test will boost things up to the terrifying full power of things, and the prototype is slated to be completed in 2018. A limited production run will then begin in 2019, with a purchase price of around US$1 million expected.

At a million dollars a pop, Miss R doesn't do much to prove the economics of electric performance – we'll leave that to the US$200k Tesla – but it's yet another demonstration of the wild, furious performance you can get when you swap hydrocarbons for electrons.

Check out an early test video below.
