Italy-based Automobili Estrema reveals Fulminea, an all-electric hypercar that has an output of 1.5 megawatts (2,040hp). The company claims that it’s the first electric hypercar to use a hybrid battery pack that combines both a solid-state cell and an ultra-condenser to powers four electric motors, enabling it to achieve a 0-62mph time of 2.0 seconds, while reaching 200mph in less than 10.0 seconds.
This hybrid battery pack houses the cells in separate carbon fiber cases, with the smaller one holding ultracapacitors mounted behind the front axle and the larger solid-state pack boasting cell-to-pack technology, located behind the cockpit for weight distribution reasons. On a full charge, you can expect up to 323-miles, and when plugged into a DC fast charger, you’ll be able to power it up from 10% to 80% in less than 15-minutes. It’s limited to 61-units worldwide, and will be priced at $2.4-million when they hit the market in Q3 2023.

Automobili Estrema is a newly formed boutique manufacturer of electric hypercars and supercars. Electric car entrepreneur Gianfranco Pizzuto, who in 2007 was a co-founder and investor at Fisker Automotive, founded it in 2020. Gianfranco is flanked by a team of veteran managers with a long and successful automotive background. Their first hypercar model ‘Fulminea’ will be the first street legal electric vehicle to use a hybrid battery pack (the world’s first), which combines ultra-capacitors with ABEE’s Li-ion solid-state cells,” said the company in a press release.
