For the time being, we will forget the fact that two companies claim the right to the meticulous Hispinoza Suiza brand. But just so that we don’t leave this story hanging, one of these cars is these companies is Hispano Suiza Automobilmanufaktur AG, owned by Austrian car designer Erwin Leo Himmel. The other one is the Spanish family lead by the Miguel Suqué Mateu, the great-grandson of Damián Mateu, the co-founder of the Spanish Hispano Suiza dating back 1904.
The battles aside, let’s focus on the Hispinoza Suiza Carmen built by the Mateu family. In all respect, this all-electric vehicle is not an ordinary feat. It is made for the luxurious market and to fulfill the inner desires of car enthusiasts who lookout for the most extraordinary pieces. It is indeed one of kind of a car that you cannot help but widely gape at.
Fitted with dual electric motors at each rear wheel, it breathes out 1,005 horsepower, produced by a T-shaped Lithium-Ion battery. The battery sits low along the vehicle’s central spine. This battery should comfortably carry you for no less than 248 miles (400 kilometers) on a single charge.
Its creators say it should ride zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than three seconds. Its top speed is capped at 155 mph (250 km/h). Among its notable difference from other powerful electric cars, is that the Carmen does its job with the rear wheels. Lots of engineering concern is consequently given to the vehicle’s rear as well as vector power between the drive wheels to assist in stability and cornering.
