Excitement is building as more details of Singapore’s first-ever hypercar, the Dendrobium, have been revealed ahead of its worldwide debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.
Set to receive its full public show reveal at 1415 CET March 7th on Stand 1229, the two-seater all-electric hypercar concept is the brainchild of Singapore electric mobility experts Vanda Electrics.
With Geneva just under a week away, Vanda Electrics has released a selection of images and a short film giving a glimpse at what visitors can expect. Dendrobium will feature a host high-tech componentry clothed in a remarkable body featuring an automatic roof and doors, which open in a synchronized manner, resembling a fully-opened dendrobium flower, a genus of orchids native to Singapore.
Vanda Electrics’ technical partner on the Dendrobium project is Williams Advanced Engineering, the technology and engineering services division of the Williams Group. Williams Advanced Engineering specialises in electrification, aerodynamics, lightweight structures and vehicle integration and will assist in future project development.
The interior of the Dendrobium concept has been trimmed using Bridge of Weir Leather Company hides, which sources the best hides from the best heritage breeds and has adopted the very latest technology. The result is the lowest carbon tannery and leather product in the world.
Marking the latest step in Vanda Electrics’ global strategy to revolutionise zero emissions vehicles, the Dendrobium follows on from a commercial vehicle (http://vandaelectrics.com/pro-anttruck) and e-scooter (http://motochimp.com).*Automotive World is not responsible for the content of this news release.
