Zion FCV Revealed As A 1,750-HP Green Supercar

Electric Vehicles / Comments

Forget electric cars, the future is in hydrogen.

Greek startup company Spyros Panapoulos Automotive (SPA) has revealed the aptly-named Chaos, a 3D-printed "ultra car" powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V10 producing, wait for it, 3,000 horsepower at 12,000 rpm when running on E85 fuel. SPA boldly claims its new Bugatti Chiron rival will accelerate like an F1 car and be used to set a new production car record.

It all sounds very ambitious, but the Chaos has only been shown in render images, so we can't help but be skeptical about these bold claims. If the Chaos is too extreme for you, SPA has also previewed two alternative models: the Zion FCV and Cubicle EV.

As the name suggests, the Zion FCV is a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. Previewed in render images, the Zion FCV takes the form of a luxury five-seater with a sleeker design than the Chaos. In terms of dimensions, the Zion FCV measures 198 inches long, 80.3 inches wide and 53 inches high, with a short 90.5-inch wheelbase.

Depending on the configuration, the Zion FCV will be available with power outputs ranging between 680 and 1,750 horsepower. Coupled with a curb weight of 4739 pounds, the Zion FCV will allegedly accelerate from 0-60 mph in 1.8 to 3.5 seconds.

Flat out, the Zion will reach a top speed of between 155-217 mph while offering a driving range of 485-839 miles. Although the interior is not shown in images, SPA says the cabin will feature a touchscreen and augmented reality controls.

The Cubicle, on the other hand, is a two-seat EV with up to 220 hp and a range of 173-191 miles. Dubbed as the first Greek EV, the Cubicle is described as "a new gadget for those who focus in practicality and seek for a greener solution in mobility" and features a panoramic glass roof and similar proportions as a Smart ForTwo.
