Another day, another bold claim. Taipei-based startup Xing Mobility has just announced a 1,341 hp rally-inspired supercar, which the company claims is the world’s first electric supercar with on-road and off-road capabilities. Enter the Miss R.

It’s designed purely for performance driving (it’s even capable of rallying!), with propulsion coming from four independent 350 volt motors. The company says the car “boasts four-wheel torque vectoring and is capable of staggering speeds.” Just how quick is this thing?

Well, the Miss R prototype claims a century sprint time of 1.8 seconds, while zero to 200 km/h time is done in 5.1 seconds. Top speed is said to be over 270 km/h. That makes it 0.1 seconds quicker than the new Tesla Roadster, but the American-made 10,000 Nm electric sports car boasts a top speed of 402 km/h and a cruising range of 998 km.

Electric juice comes from the Xing’s patented immersion cooling technology, dubbed the Xing Battery System. It consists of a stackable, LEGO-like battery modules which house 42 lithium-ion cells, all of which sit directly in the non-conductive 3M Novec 7200 Engineered Fluid. The liquid has been used for solvent cleaning, heat transfer applications, fire suppression and supercomputer cooling.

XING Mobility is the first car company in the world to use Novec fluids for modularised battery cooling in electric vehicles. This apparently unlocks the ability to achieve continuous high-discharge power output, increased stability and a high level of predictability due to exceptional heat transfer, non-flammable and non-toxic properties of Novec fluids.

Miss R’s battery pack can produce one Megawatt of power with 98 modules holding 4,116 cells, and while car manufacturers race to tackle the challenge of range and charging restraints, Xing Mobility plans to incorporate a battery swap system that allows the entire battery enclosure to be exchanged within five minutes!

“Miss R is the embodiment of the paradigm shift of EVs surpassing traditional combustion-engine cars in both performance and capability. The core idea behind the prototype is to achieve game-changing performance levels and driving experiences that are otherwise impossible to achieve in a gasoline-powered vehicle,” said company co-founder and CEO, Royce YC Hong.
