Volar-e, one the most powerful electric cars ever made, was built by the Spanish company Applus Idiada with up to 50% financing by European funds. It can reach a top speed of 300 km/h, and move from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, providing more than 1000 HP
One of the main objectives that the European Commission is targeting with the construction of the Volar-e is to address worries that hold consumers back from considering the possibility of purchasing an electric car, such as limited driving range and long charging time. The design and construction of the Volar-e takes the main electro-mobility concerns into account. Light materials such as carbon fibre or aluminium, were used to reduce the weight of the car and increase its range while its aerodynamics were also optimized via computer simulation tools. In addition, the vehicle has been fitted with a fast charging system that enables battery charging in only 15 minutes, the time taken for an average break in a service station.
