Electric hypercar brand Hispano Suiza and Power Electronics, a world leader in sustainable energy, have signed an alliance to collaborate. This will be officially announced at the Intersolar Europe fair, taking place in Munich, Germany from 6-8 October.
Visitors to the exhibition will be able to see the incredible Hispano Suiza Carmen electric vehicle (EV). This futuristic-looking zero-emissions electric hyper car has 1,100 horsepower that gives it a top speed of 180mph (290kph) and it hits 0-62mph (0-100mph) in just 2.6 seconds. It also has a practical range of 250 miles (402km) for those that can afford it (£1.5 million/$2 million/€1.7 million).
Sergio Martinez Campos, Hispano Suiza CEO, said: “This agreement with Power Electronics is strategically very important for Hispano Suiza. This is because we complement the technological cycle of charging our electric hypercars to offer our customers state-of-the-art, reliable and safe chargers, thus contributing to sustainable mobility.”
Javier Rodriguez, Power Electronics commercial director has highlighted the importance of this collaboration. He also said that the two companies are leading the way in decarbonisation in the Spanish automotive scene and helping progress towards a cleaner future.
In addition to being leaders in energy storage, Power Electronics are also firmly committed to the development of electric mobility. Currently, they design, manufacture and distribute charging stations and poles that supply power to all types of electric vehicles.
Only 19 Carmen and five Carmen Boulogne models will be made. Each electric hyper vehicle is completely tailor-made taking an average of seven months to build.
