Startup unveils new electric hypercar prototype, claims specs competing with
Tesla’s new Roadster

It looks like Tesla’s next-generation Roadster might have set the bar for
new sports cars coming out. A Taipei-based startup unveils its new electric
hypercar prototype today and compares the specs with Tesla’s new electric
XING Mobility, in collaboration with chemical product giant 3m, is
developing new electric powertrain technologies that it wants to sell to
In order to showcase their technology, they unveiled a 1 MW hypercar
prototype called ‘Miss R’.
They say that it is powered by 4 independent 350V motors and their new
“modular battery system, with patented immersion-cooling technology using
3M’s Novec 7200 Engineered Fluid.”
Xing compared the vehicle to Tesla’s new Roadster in a press release:
“The reveal comes shortly after Tesla announced their second-generation
2020 Roadster, the specs of which on the surface are very similar to that of
Miss R. However, while the Tesla Roadster aims to achieve an experience
based on existing sportscar ideals on the road, XING Mobility designed Miss
R with an entirely different aspiration: reaching unthinkable performance
capabilities on-road, on-track and off-road, and achieving the kind of
versatile driving experience that has never been available to drivers
They released the following specs: 0-100 km/h in 1.8 seconds (Roadster: 2.0
seconds), 0-200 km/h in 5.1 seconds (Roadster: unreleased but 0 to 161 km/h
in 4.2 seconds) and a max speed of over 270km/h (Roadster: over 400 km/h).
They didn’t disclose the range, while Tesla announced over 620 miles of
range (~1,000 km) for the new Roadster.
Xing released a few images of their working prototype and a render of the
design of the final product:
Co-founder and CEO, Royce YC Hong commented on the unveiling:
“Miss R is the embodiment of the paradigm shift of EVs surpassing
traditional combustion-engine cars in both performance and capability. The
core idea behind the prototype is to achieve game-changing performance
levels and driving experiences that are otherwise impossible to achieve in a
While the vehicle primarily acts as a showcase for their powertrain
technology, they say that they actually want to bring it to limited
production with 20 units to be built in 2019 with a price starting at $1
But the real product is the ‘XING Battery System’, which consists of
“stackable, LEGO-like battery modules which house 42 lithium-ion cells, all
of which sit directly in a mystery liquid which was revealed to be 3M™
Novec™ 7200 Engineered Fluid,” according to the company.
There’s a glimpse of how they build the module in the video above and here’s
the final product:
It’s interesting how quickly they are using the new Tesla Roadster as a
benchmark when unveiling their own hypercar. It looks like the Roadster has
the new numbers to beat.
Obviously, XING had been working on this vehicle for a while and now Tesla
just stole their thunder out of nowhere last week by unveiling the Roadster.
What Tesla did is make it harder than ever to sell a $1 million hypercar
like what XING is suggesting here. While $200,000 is undoubtedly expensive
for a sports car, it’s only a fraction of the price rich buyers have to pay
to even just get close to the level of performance Tesla promises with the
Nonetheless, it looks like a nice effort from XING’s part here and still an
interesting way to showcase their powertrain technology.

come from Taiwan
Miss R also through the unique battery module design, effectively improve
the traditional electric car battery easy to produce power failure problem
Athletics also emphasizes that Miss R will be the world's first electric
super run featuring both "normal roads", "track" and "off-road" functions
(concept cad) It is estimated that Miss R, which will be mass-produced in
2018, will produce 10 cars a year and the estimated selling price will reach
the record of 1 million U.S. dollars

Reporter You Kai Cheng / Taipei reported
Hongyu Jun, current chairman of Taiwan's Panasonic (Matsushita Electric
Industrial), and Azizi Tucker, a former senior supplier development engineer
at Tesla (Tesla), a technological spark of collision between East and West,
Accessories & Jockey Show "Thousands" electric supercar prototype: "Miss R".
▲ This car is hand-crafted "Miss R", of which as many as 60% of the
components come from Taiwan
Formed by Hung Yu-jun and Azizi Tucker, "Competing Technology" launched
Taiwan's first electric racing car "Miss E" as early as 2016. This new
masterpiece "Miss R", though only a prototype, Power system integrity, but
also actually quite look forward to the official date of mass production.
Made of carbon fiber and aluminum alloy, the Miss R's body structure is
powered by four 450-volt high-performance drive motors (4200 lithium
batteries) that will burst to a maximum of 1 Megawatt (1,341 hp) Horsepower,
and only 2.0 seconds to complete 0-100km / h acceleration action, the
maximum speed is set at 271km / h.
▲ Miss R also through the unique battery module design, effectively improve
the traditional electric car battery easy to produce power failure problem.
In order to maintain the battery's long-term performance output, Azizi
Tucker emphasizes that the battery module used by Miss R is a unique
building block stack design with an exclusive coolant immersion design that
accurately controls battery temperature in the limited body space, Improve
overall performance and battery life; this can be said to completely subvert
the past thinking of making electric vehicles.
▲ Athletics also emphasizes that Miss R will be the world's first electric
super run featuring both "normal roads", "track" and "off-road" functions.
It is worth mentioning that the Miss R adopts the "one-wheel-one-motor"
output setting. Through the "torque-guided reduction gear box" that can
independently control a single wheel and the "electromagnetic suspension
system" that can adjust the damping according to the road conditions
(Detection per second, fine-tuning up to 1,000 times), Miss R has the best
grip and shock absorption effect anytime, anywhere. Because of this, Hsu
Yu-kun, Chief Executive Officer of Cyberjaya emphasizes: "The Miss R is a
trans-boundary pure electric super-run that challenges the performance and
driving experience of traditional internal combustion engine models with
both track and off-road performance. "
Perhaps for Competing Technology, the future goal is not just to become
"East" Tesla, but to overthrow Tesla!
▲ It is estimated that Miss R, which will be mass-produced in 2018, will
produce 10 cars a year and the estimated selling price will reach the record
of 1 million U.S. dollars.
