The Nevera's newest nemesis is heading to New York next month.
After disappearing from the calendar for two years, the New York Auto Show is finally returning next month, from April 15-24. A number of exciting new vehicles are expected to be showcased, many of which will be fully electrified. Among them is a new supercar from an Austrian company called Deus. We first got a glimpse of the new EV last week thanks to a shadowy teaser and that has now been followed up with a short teaser video clip. Again, very little is revealed, but we have to say that this looks like a mix of Koenigsegg lines with a Lotus Evija rear end. Additionally, we now know the name of the EV: the Vayanne.
Whatever the final product actually looks like in proper lighting, it is sure to be an attractive beast thanks to the work of ItalDesign. The design company joined forces with Williams Advanced Engineering last year to work on revolutionary new EVs. As far as we can tell, Deus appears to be the first automaker to take advantage of the partnership's EVX modular platform, but no information has been teased as to performance, range, or charging speeds.
All we know so far is that the Vayanne "features Austrian design language with symmetry and infinity inspiring its exterior and interior, while Italian and British technical and engineering know-how" will further bolster the car's desirability to the well-heeled.
The new electric supercar will be revealed on April 13 at 2 pm local time at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center during the first press day of the New York Auto Show.
Plenty of new electric supercars are planned in the coming months and years, including a British offering called the Arash AFX, so competition for the Austrian outfit will be tough. That said, cars like these are typically offered in very small numbers at exorbitant costs, and the shockingly wealthy love having expensive items that their peers can't get their hands on. But will it be as good as the Rimac Nevera? We'll find out in a couple of weeks.
