Elation Freedom Coupe
One thing the electric revolution has done is democratize supercar construction. No longer coupled to expensive engine development, off-the-shelf electric motors and battery packs make the biggest expense of creating a car a much less costly endeavor. The latest electric supercar maker to step into the arena is Elation, based in California, with the Freedom coupe. The clean-slate chassis and body are constructed completely of carbon fiber, with design work by a group of engineers from racing series around the world. Elation claims the carbon monocoque will weigh only 180 pounds, while three electric motors make 1,400 horsepower, with a four-motor version making 1,900 planned. Interestingly, an Audi-sourced V10 model with all-wheel-drive was also announced. No production date has been announced either, making the Freedom a digital render only for now.
