Spanish automotive company Hispano Suiza revealed “Carmen” at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, and it’s an all-electric supercar that you probably never knew existed. At 3,726-pounds, this supercar features dual electric motors, located in the 20-inch rear wheels, that generate a combined output of 1,005 horsepower, plenty of power to help it accelerate from 0-62 mph in under 3-seconds, while topping out at an electronically limited 155 mph.

Power is stored in a large 80 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery pack protected by a carbon fiber housing that can be upgraded in the future – possibly to a larger 105-kWh pack as early as next year. This move is to boost the 249+ miles of the base battery pack.

“Following its Geneva Motor Show premiere, the Hispano Suiza Carmen will commence road testing by the middle of the year and will be in the hands of customers in June 2020. Production will be strictly limited to just 19 examples, each carrying an eye-watering price tag of €1.5 million (plus taxes), which works out to about $1.7M at current exchange rates,” according to Motor1.
