Chinese startup NextEV will debut its 1,360-horsepower 1 MegaWatt supercar in London on November 21.
Details on NextEV's electric supercar have been kept pretty well under wraps since it was first introduced back in September. Outside of a lone sketch and some leaked video of the vehicle testing on the Nurburgring, we don’t know a whole lot about the upcoming project. But thanks to a new teaser, we do know when it will be unveiled.
Mark your calendars for November 21, 2016, that’s when we’ll catch our first glimpse of the NextEV 1 MegaWatt supercar in full. Making its debut in London, the company says that the car is “History in the Making,” and introduces the hashtag “#BlueSkyComing…” whatever that means.
The teaser, which vaguely shows off the front fascia, doesn’t give us much detail to work with. The sleek headlights and angled vents share a similar semblance to the Toyota FT-1 concept we saw a few years back, while most of the rear design remains a mystery, aside from the clearly distinguishable rear wing in a few earlier spy shots.
Under the hood, a 1,360-horsepower (1,014-kilowatt) electric motor will propel the car to 62 mph (100 kmh) in under three seconds. If you think that’s impressive, the supercar will continue on to a top speed of 186 mph (300 kmh).
Estimated to have a price tag of $1M when it debuts, production will be limited to just six examples worldwide. The car will act as a test bed for future battery technology that will carry over into more mass-market vehicles in the future. We’ll look forward to more details when NextEV’s supercar makes its debut early next week.
