RAESR reveal 240 mph electric car you can buy! 0

It looks like a prop from the set of Blade Runner 2049 but this vision of the future is actually closer than you think.

Built by RAESR, this roller-skate resembling prototype is a brand new concept called the Tachyon Speed. Nice eh? The really cool thing is: apparently you’ll be able to buy one.

There’s no denying the genuine global attitude shift towards electric, certainly no longer a slightly whimsical possibility of where transportation could go. Pretty much all major car brands are focusing on an electric only future; only last week E-ON announced plans to roll out 10,000 electric car charging points across Europe. Therefore, it makes sense that we can expect to see some genuine ‘supercars’ contenders powered by electricity.

As part of their promotion announcing the initiative, E-ON have released a trailer showing the possibilities of electric vehicle transportation – the Tachyon Speed amongst the impressive rosta of vehicles on show.

Built in California by startup company RAESR (Rice Advanced Engineering Systems and Research), the Tachyon Speed is said to be an all-electric hypercar capable of an eye-popping 1,250bhp and 4,949Nm of torque.

The top speed of the car is touted at 240mph – this rumour is founded on the fact that the theoretical particle the car is named after (that moves faster than light) is 240mph.

The Tachyon Speed can get from 0-60 in three seconds and 0-120 in under seven. It has seven separate direct-drive electric motors.  

But it’s not all about speed; the Tachyon Speed’s range claims are equally impressive; the company say it is good for 150 miles on a single charge in ‘city charging’ conditions.

A cool ‘jet-fighter’ style two seater design gives it a further unique twist, the front/back positioning aimed at improving aerodynamic performance.

Your appetite wetted? The company have announced they have begun taking limited orders via their website here.
