Ariel Hipercar

That’s not its final name โ€” it stands for “High-Performance Carbon Reduction” โ€” but the Ariel Hipercar will be a reality before the close of the decade. It will be powered by an electric drivetrain augmented by a microturbine range extender, letting it run as a pure EV most of the time without any range anxiety. The aluminum chassis is sturdy yet saves on weight, which, combined with the 1,180 bhp output of the four-wheel drive variant, will help propel the car from 0-62 mph in just 2.4 seconds, with a top speed of 160. A full release is planned for 2019.
