Concept Flair – Vanda Dendrobium, Singapore’s 1st Hypercar

After years of development, Vanda Electronics finally released their first concept car, the Dendrobium last spring at the Geneva International Motorshow.

The all-electric hypercar delivers an impressive top speed of 200 mph and a 0-60 sprint of just 2.7 seconds. Vanda Electronics is Singapore’s leading e-mobility companies. Its revolutionary strategy is to develop a range of global electric zero-emission vehicles that focus on luxury, consumer and industrial.

Vanda Electrics has also engaged a small number of key partners to develop the Dendrobium concept. Williams Advanced Engineering, the technology and engineering services division of the Williams Group specializes in the development of Dendrobium’s aerodynamics, lightweight structures, vehicle integration and electrification.

Other highlights of Dendrobium’s include the aerodynamic floor, rear double diffuser and front splitter. At the back, the rear light bar elegantly floats over the tail of the car. And the exposed double wishbone front and rear suspension adds motorsport flair.

The carbon fiber composite monocoque helps the Dendrobium achieve a 1,750 kg curb weight. As does the carbon fiber body panels, carbon ceramic brake discs and lightweight alloy calipers, all giving the whip more F1 style. And the Dendrobium features 20-inch front and 21-inch rear alloy wheels, wrapped in Michelin high performance tires.

The lightweight theme of carbon fiber composition continues inside the hypercar’s driver focused cockpit. The sinister black interior features red sports seats with contrast stitching. Exclusive Scotland Bridge of Weir leather trim is the lowest carbon tannery and leather product in the world.

The Dendrobium electric powertrain features two inboard mounted electric motors per axle, with a single-speed gearbox and differential at the front and a multi-speed gearbox and differential at the rear.

If Vanda Electrics receives enough interest the first model is expected to hit the road by 2020.
