And it’s Italian too…
Solid-state battery tech has often been touted as the future of EVs. Easier and more environmentally friendly to produce versus lithium-ion batteries, most car companies view the area as a priority for their respective R & D departments.
That said, many still feel it will be a number of years before solid-state batteries reach the mainstream. Yet Italian startup Automobili Estrema has revealed a 2011bhp hypercar EV powered solely by solid-state tech. Dubbed the Fulminea, it has a claimed 0-62 mph time of around 2 seconds and aims to reach 200 mph in less than 10.
Powered by a 100kWh solid-state battery pack, the Fulminea is targeting an impressive 323 mile WLTP range. Company CEO Gianfranco Pizzuto hopes the Fulminea will be able to charge from 10 to 80% in just 15 minutes too.
In terms of production, Estrema is currently targeting a 2023 start date. The firm aims to produce only 61 examples, each costing around $2.8 million.
