World's fastest electric car with top speed of 208mph launched

World's fastest electric car with top speed of 208mph launched

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 12:45 PM on 29th January 2009


The world's fastest electric car that can reach speeds of 208mph has been unveiled.

The eco-vehicle created by Shelby Supercars can accelerate to 60mph in just 2.5 seconds.

It is powered by a twin motor system, which produces a staggering 1,000 horse power and 800lb-ft of torque.

In contrast the current electric sports car flagbearer, the Tesla Roadster which was recently tested by Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear, produces 250 horse power.


Record: Shelby's Ultimate Aero EV will accelerate to 60mph in just 2.5 seconds

Makers Shelby Supercars, who also manufacture the world's fastest production car, say the Ultimate Aero EV is powered by a 'revolutionary All-Electric ScalableB Powertrain'.

According to Shelby, it will be possible to fully charge the batteries in just 10 minutes from the mains, thanks to an on-board system it is calling 'Charge on the Run'.

Once the Ultimate Aero EV's batteries are charged it will have a range of between 150 and 200 miles.

The manufacturer expects to roll out pre-production versions of the vehicle, which has a three-speed automatic gearbox, by June.


Impressive: The Ultimate Aero EV will prove that electric-powered vehicles will not only match but outperform internal combustion cars, the makers claim

A Shelby Supercars spokesman said: 'Having the world's fastest production car we decided the Ultimate Aero to be the perfect high visibility outlet to demonstrate our new green powertrain.

'The Ultimate Aero EV will prove that electric-powered vehicles will not only match but also provide more overall performance than internal combustion cars.'

The company says it plans to use the electric motor technology in lower power, every day vehicles such as small and family cars, trucks and buses.

Although deliveries of the Ultimate Aero EV are expected by the end of the year, the company, based in West Richland, Washington, USA, has not announced a price.

The petrol-engine SSC Ultimate Aero TT is currently the fastest production car in the world, with a fastest recorded speed of 257 mph.

This speed was reportedly achieved during tests on September 13, 2007 in West Richland and verified by Guinness World Records on October 9, 2007.

The Shelby SuperCars company was founded by Jerod Shelby, who spent over seven years designing the Aero.

3 speed auto? nahhh.. give me a 5 speed petrol engine anytime. even if it means doing 0-100 in 11 seconds.

electric motors belong in house fans and vacuum cleaners.

Re: World's fastest electric car with top speed of 208mph launched

ERRRMMMM.... still slower than Volkswagen Bugatti Veyron leh...

the veyron can hit 253mph compared to 208mph. takes only 2.4secs from 0-60mph as opposed to 2.5secs. and has lots more horse power. can check it out in wiki!

only difference is veyron's petrol consumption is crazy lah. at least Shelby's Ultimate Aero EV is electrical!

different mah.. Veyron is powered by a 16.4L W 16 with 4 turbos. it is a real man's car.
i'm guessing the Ultimate Aero EV is being weighed down by batteries as well.

There are also talks going on that electric cars are a road and pedestrian hazard because they are too quiet.

um, she's comparing it with the Bugatti Veyron.. a supercar in the Ultimate Aero's league.

Yup, realistically no one will drive at 200mph+ on a normal road.
infact in the Veyron, a special key is required to unlock the full 987hp (1001PS), and you'd probably need to rent an airfield or race track to do it.
At that speed, the car lowers itself, rear spoiler comes up and steering wheel is locked.

i guess such cars are just engineering statements to prove you can design a production car to hit 250mph.
And possibly learning lessons that can be applied in normal cars. The Veyron's engine and transmission itself, is a work of art.

The electric car tested in Top Gear took much much MUCH longer to get a full charge, but this did it in around 10 minutes!?

This is amazing stuff! I foresee a great potential in electric cars, and also hybrid cars that runs gas.
