Karma Automotive has started testing the performance of supercars on its E-Flex platform.
The AWD prototype is aiming for 1,100bhp and 10,500lb-ft wheel torque with electronic torque vectoring and front- and rear-mounted dual-electric motors.
The motors and a flat-floor 120kWh battery will give the prototype near 50/50 weight distribution and up to 400 miles of all-electric range.
Karma engineers have been conducting dynamic testing at California’s The Thermal Club race track.
Kevin Zhang, chief technology officer at Karma Automotive, said, “Physical prototype testing is an important landmark for Karma, and an exciting milestone for all involved. We aim to make sure the platform is capable of achieving leading standards in the supercar sector and is superior in every sense.”
Karma’s platform can be used for track and street cars, and it can be retrofitted to existing products or developed for new applications.
