Piëch Automotive is a German-Swiss car maker with offices in Zürich and Munich. It has taken upon its shoulders the responsibility to shape Switzerland’s auto contribution to the EV world with its first car dubbed the Piëch Automotive Mark Zero.
The Mark Zero aspires to be a grand tourer two door EV. It is a high-powered supercar with some rather fancy dimensions.
It measures 174.5 inches in length, 78.4 inches in width and stands at 49.2 inches tall. If you compare it to a Porsche 911, this one is slightly stubbier but shorter.
However, it has a wheelbase of 103.1 inches which is significantly longer than that of 911. From the land of ski resorts as well as chocolate and the unequivocal square flag, this car is a rough and experimental entry into the competitive EV supercar arena.
The firm’s co-founder Anton Piech is the son of former Volkswagen chairman Ferdinand Piech and probably the auto car bug runs in the family. The company claims that with the internally cooled battery, the Mark Zero can run for about 310 miles.
It weighs less than 1,800kg (3968). The powertrain will bring forth 200 horsepower from each of its wheel-placed motors.
The battery specifications have been closely guarded secret but Piech says that it will carry “special type of cell hardly heats up during charging or discharging phase.” Desten Group of Hong Kong-based is responsible for this part of Mark Zero’s development.
Even with lots of design cues drawn from a number of existing cars, this vehicle promises to change the way electric motoring is viewed especially because of its thoughtful battery architecture. We can’t wait to give it a good long ride.
