India is producing its first electric hypercar, the Azani by Mean Metal Motors. According to its website, the Mean Metal Motors Azani will come with specs like 1,000 horsepower, 0-97 kmph in 2.1 seconds, top speed of 354 kmph, which is 32 kmph quicker than the Tesla Model S Plaid.
From paper, it is very impressive. Even the pictures look very promising, with great designs for the Azani. This vehicle is built with future products in mind. Though there is yet any words on how many electric motors it comes with.
|0 to 97 kmph||2.1 seconds|
|Top Speed||354 kmph|
Tesla’s flagship product, the Model S Plaid, in comparison, churns out 1,020 horsepower from its tri-motor setup, can go up to 97 kmph in 1.99 seconds, has a top speed of 322 kmph, and comes with an EPA-estimated range of 637 km.
Apart from this, the Mean Metal Motors Azani will come with a double-wishbone suspension setup with adaptive damping, ventilated carbon braking, torque vectoring, and an electronic power steering, to name a few. Other interesting stuff includes:
- Augmented Reality Displays
- M-Log Integration
- Advanced Morphing Seats
- Advanced AI Module
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Advanced Telematics
- Over-the-air Updates
According to MMM’s website, it stated that the Azani will be a high-tech car in terms of features and the production aspect. It also says the hypercar can be built anywhere as it makes use of 100 times fewer components, is four times cheaper to build, and offers twice the margin.
No price has been released for the actual Azani yet. For now, the company is accepting reservations and looking for investors.
Background of Mean Metal Motors:
Mean Metal Motors is an Indian start-up. Mean Metal Motors isn’t exactly a new company as it previewed a hybrid concept car back in 2015 called the M-Zero. It was touted as India’s first supercar. Fast-forward to 2021, MMM seems to have shifted its focus to an electric hypercar that comes with some seriously impressive specs.
