This new electric gem is destined to be the new obsession of anyone who calls himself a speed lover. Will it deliver what it promises?
Being christened Elektron Quasar is not a coincidence. This German hypercar is pure splendor and power.
Elektron Motors’ newest and brand-new creation is an insane machine with intrepid design, built to eat asphalt.
But not only that, as this German car also offers incredible performance that will make it one of the electric cars to watch as soon as it hits the streets.
An outstanding debt
Almost a year ago, the German company Elektron Innovativ announced with great fanfare its first model: the Elektron One , a high-performance electric car that was supposed to debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, but never due to the pandemic. could see the light.
After the failed presentation of that first car that was already painting for good things with its 1,341 horsepower , the firm decided to renew itself and not only change its name to Elektron Motors, but also take the One to a new level to give shape to the Quasar, a much more ambitious car that boasts a staggering 2,348 horsepower!
A savage of power
The secret for the Elektron Quasar to reach that speed are the four electric motors that it has strategically located on each of its wheels. Each of these mechanisms will be equipped with Elektron Smart Torque Vectoring System (ESTV) technology , which will be in charge of managing and distributing all the power efficiently.
To give us a better idea of the arsenal that those lucky enough to have one of these machines will have, Elektron Motors ensures that its Quasar will be able to reach 100 kilometers per hour in just 1.65 seconds , an acceleration even higher than the Formula 1 cars already other cars on the market such as the Porsche 918 Spyder (2.5 seconds), the Lamborghini Huracán Performante (2.9 seconds), the new Porsche 911 Turbo S (2.6 seconds) and the brand new Tesla Model S P100D (2.4 seconds), which presumes to be the pride by Elon Musk .
If this is not enough (and understandably difficult to assimilate), the jewel of Elektron Motors can reach a speed of up to 450 kilometers per hour , making it one of the fastest electric hypercars in the nascent segment.
While no further details have been revealed, the Quasar is expected to feature a push-rod suspension similar to those used in sports competition and which was announced for the One .
In contrast to the beastly power that hides in its guts, the Elektron Quasar presents a silhouette that is synonymous with exquisiteness.
Its pronounced curves and aerodynamic design made of a carbon and aramid chassis that guarantee lightness and rigidity, make it a sports car in every sense of the word.
Regarding the interior, for the moment we have to settle for a few renderings to imagine it; however, if Elektron Motors delivers on what it promises, we have before us a cabin worthy of the cars of the future .
In addition to its neon lights distributed to illuminate the dashboard and the navigation and entertainment center, what most attracts the attention of the Quasar are its seats and that bar that divides the cabin and separates the driver’s seat and that of the passenger. We will have to wait if this adventurous design is kept by Elektron until it reaches the market.

Very exclusive speed
As expected, a performance of this caliber will only be for a few, specifically for 99 lucky ones who have the capacity to disburse 2.2 million euros (more than 52.5 million Mexican pesos ). The Elektron Quasar is expected to hit the streets sometime in 2023, when we can see if it really is a hypercar in the full sense of the word.
