It’s been awhile since we heard from XING Mobility but the company has released new pictures and videos of their rally-inspired Miss R.
Billed as the “world’s first electric supercar with on-road and off-road capabilities,” the Miss R is still undergoing testing but the company says the latest round of trails have been the “best validation of the battery technology and vehicle concept so far.”
The automaker went on to say the tests focused on off-road conditions and this enabled them to gather information about how the car’s handling, durability and power distribution in off-road mode.
While the Miss R doesn’t look like much due to its prototype body, XING says the car will have four electric motors and a 1 Megawatt battery pack which consists of 98 modules and 4116 cells.
The company also claims the modular battery pack offers “one of the highest power density” ratings on the market while also being up to 50% lighter than conventional batteries. Part of this is due to the fact that the battery cells are submerged directly in “3M Novec 7200 Engineered Fluid.”
It has more horses under the hood than you’ll ever need
While it’s hard to get excited about battery fluid, XING says the Miss R will have a combined output of 1,341 hp (1000 kW). The company expects this will enable the model to rocket from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 1.8 seconds and 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in 5.1 seconds.
While the Miss R certainly grabs headlines thanks to its expected output, the company is also using the model to promote its electric technologies for commercial and industrial applications. XING says it is already working with “vehicle makers from around the world to apply technology from Miss R in city buses, ride-sharing scooters, construction equipment and special-purpose boats.”
One example is an electric transit vehicle which will be show alongside the Miss R at the AutoTronics show in Taipei. Dubbed Mr. T, the model has an electric motor and 6,300 lithium-ion cells which are located in 150 reconfigurable modules.
