Electric hypercars - soon

Doubt that in the future almost allcars will run on electricity, no longer. It is planned to equip with electric motors not only passenger models, but also Formula-1 race cars. Moreover, even hypercars will switch to a harmless energy source - one of the first such cars will be a model codenamed Omega. It is believed that he will become a direct competitor to the Aston Martin Valkyrie, which accelerates to 320 km / h in just 10 seconds, and its top speed is more than 400 km / h.

Recently, Lotus, which is engaged in the developmentOmega, has entered into a partnership with the company Williams Advanced Engineering, which previously participated in the creation of hypercar from other manufacturers. It was announced that both sides would share their experience in creating advanced motion technologies. Since Williams had already helped Singer and Jaguar create super-fast cars, a well-founded rumor arose that the new alliance would jointly develop the Omega hypercar.

It is expected to be equipped with all-wheel drive.an electric motor, and on a single battery charge to travel a distance of up to 400 km. If the charge is exhausted, nothing terrible will happen - the car will be compatible with high-speed charging terminals. If Lotus listens to the advice of Williams, the hypercar will almost certainly get a lot of carbon fiber parts, which will ease its body. Also, a British company can share its batteries.

When people can see a working prototype of Lotus Omega is not yet clear. The publication Autocar believes that this will happen in about two years - this is how much time the project will develop.
