Super EV Arrives on a Wednesday - The 170mph AEDC Electric Prototype

Race Car

All-electric drift cars are the future, according to a pair of Spanish and English racing companies.

Quimera Responsible Racing of Spain and Evelio Electric Supercars from Great Britain have teamed up to develop an EV supercar for drifting competitions. The AEDC, or All Electric Drift Car, utilizes state-of-the-art technology to achieve some incredible speeds for an electric racer and boast a range that is sure to inspire some serious EV-envy. Dubbed the K1 Evelio, the electric racer has an average range of 150 miles on a single charge.

It can sprint from 0-60mph in 3.2 seconds and is capable, the team claims, of reaching speeds in excess of 170mph. In current guise, the K1 Evelio boasts a 170kW (the equivalent of roughly 228hp) electric motor with 162 lb-ft of torque. An electronically-limited top speed of 95mph isn't all that impressive, but when the team boosts the power output up to 250kW (about 335hp), the aforementioned (and much more impressive) figures will be reached. The K1 Evelio features a tubular steel chassis, which helps with weight and rigidity on the track.

A fiberglass body further complements the chassis along with an aerodynamic design. For added racing performance, the team has added super-charged Lithium-ion Phosphate batteries. The batteries are supposedly some of the most stable on the market and can be recharged to full capacity in only an hour. A 30 amp socket allows for a quick-charge of 80 percent in only 20 minutes. Quimera Responsible Racing and Evelio Electric Supercars' AEDC K1 Evelio is finished in a silver white metallic pearl. A design competition is underway as we speak to give the new model a boisterous look, even it runs, well, quietly.
