The spectacular Volar E running A123 cells

Here at eBaracus we love to see what customers have been up to with our products, this one is a real engineering tour de force! Designed and built by the global automotive engineering giants AppPlus+ IDIADA in conjunction with Rimac and co-funded by the European Commission to demonstrate that electric vehicles can have the performance and technology to challenge the best conventional supercars in the world.

The car has 4 x 200kW motors developing 1000NM or torque and powered by 38kWh of A123 Prismatic cells supplied by eBaracus. The body is carbon fibre on a tubular chrome-molybdenum chassis and the controlo systems feature torque vector steering.

In the words of Fernando Basabe, CEO of Applus+, “this project is recognition of the technological capacity of Applus + IDIADA in the field of engineering for the automotive industry.” Carles Grasas, CEO of Applus+ IDIADA, stresses the technical challenge that the award of the project by the EC implies: “successful completion of the project in four months is the best demonstration of the capabilities of the company in engineering and project management.
