Chinese Startup NextEV Begins Testing 1,300+ HP Electric Hypercar

A couple weeks after being previewed by a rather revealing teaser sketch, China’s upcoming NextEV supercar has been snapped during testing.

The image posted by Chinese website Autohome reveals that the all-electric model adopts typical supercar proportions, with voluptuous front and rear wheels arches and an exceptionally low front end.

There are certain elements that remind us of other cars, such as the roofline, B-pillar and side air intake setup which bring to mind the Lotus Evora, and the rear wing doubling as an air brake also seems to operate in a similar way to the that of the McLaren P1.

According to Autohome, the model is being developed in Germany and will be produced in limited numbers in the United Kingdom. It is reported that the electric drivetrain will deliver 1,360 hp, making it a direct rival to the upcoming Rimac Concept S in the EV hypercar niche.

While NextEV’s first model will be a supercar, the company plans on eventually offering a fleet of affordable electric vehicles.
