Luxury EV from Britain: 650 HP and 0-100 km/h Time of 2.3 Seconds

The Apex AP-0 will be released at a price of £150,000 in 2022.

The segment of electric sports cars has a whole galaxy of high-performance innovative models. Despite this, manufacturers continue to fill it with more and more new models. This time, an electric sports car was presented by Apex. The model was named Apex AP-0 and is currently in the status of a concept, but it should get a production version by 2022.

The sports car can already be tested on city roads and has a rather expressive design. It is based on a carbon fiber monocoque mounted on a chassis with a rigid modular frame. The AP-0 looks incredibly dynamic, even when standing still. The conventional radiator grille has been replaced by narrow slits that direct air through the hood. The sports car also received three-sided LED headlights and unique taillights, cameras instead of mirrors, a fully glass roof, butterfly doors, an adjustable suspension, a huge diffuser and an aerodynamic rear fin, like in Formula One cars. The whole image is completed with 19- and 20-inch carbon fiber wheels mounted in front and rear of the car, respectively.

The two-seat interior of the model is very technological: it is equipped with an augmented reality system. This option is implemented thanks to the LiDAR sensor. It collects information around the car at a distance of up to 100 meters and creates a detailed map, thus helping the driver avoid dangerous situations. In essence, this system is part of Level 3 automation. The interior is also equipped with an aluminum steering wheel of a non-standard design, which is trimmed with leather.

The rear-wheel drive Apex AP-0 is powered by a 650-hp electric motor that provides a 0-100 km/h time of 2.3 seconds. A top speed is electronically limited at 306 km/h. A 515-km drive range is ensured by a 90-kWh battery pack.

The sports car will be released no earlier than the second half of 2022, and its starting price will be £150,000.
