The company was founded by Benoit Morand, a former Le Mans team manager, and Eric Boullier, who previously served as the Lotus F1 team manager. “We are working on a disruptive technology with cells that have a greater energy density than those used in Formula E at around 180Wh/kg,” said Morand.
The company hopes to have a prototype of the hybrid ready sometime this year and the EV will follow in 2022, ahead of an official launch in 2023. A total of 73 examples will be built and both the EV and hybrid will cost around £1,786,000. That works out to nearly $2.5 million, making it even more expensive than the Lotus Evija EV hypercar. Interestingly, the renderings of Morand’s hypercar showcase a similar silhouette to the Evija – both cars have clearly been designed to be highly aerodynamically efficient with a striking mix of slashes and air intakes.
