Not threatened by Tesla�s promise to shake-up the performance car industry with its second-generation Roadster, a Taiwanese manufacturer is promising to create an electric vehicle quicker than the Roadster.
Dubbed �Miss R� and created by Xing Mobility, the vehicle apparently produces the equivalent of 1,341 hp. Like other electric supercars, it utilizes a high powered electric motor at each wheel and can allegedly sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 1.8 seconds and 124 mph (200 km/h) in 5.1 seconds.
Sitting in the floor of the Miss R is 4,200 lithium-ion 18650 cells, the same cells used by the Tesla Model S. However, where the Tesla Roadster promises roughly 620 miles (1000 km) of range, Xing Mobility says the Miss R will be capable of traveling 155 miles (249 km) with its 52 kWh battery.
Beyond its bold acceleration claims, a particularly interesting thing about the Miss R is that it takes some design inspiration from rally cars and therefore features a set of beefy tires.
Xing Mobility intends on revealing a completed prototype in 2018.
