DEUS electric hypercar concept made debut at New York show; Williams Advanced Engineering & Italdesign
The DEUS Vayanne production-oriented electric hypercar concept made its world debut last week at the New York International Auto Show. DEUS Automobiles was established in Vienna, Austria, in 2020.
Vayanne is the result of the three-way collaboration between DEUS Automobiles, Italdesign, and Williams Advanced Engineering with a shared goal of producing the first electric vehicle to cross the 2,200 horsepower mark (simulated, not validated) while delivering a comfortable and luxurious ride, outstanding performance figures (0-100 km/h in less than 1.99 seconds), and maximum daily usability in the hypercar class.
Williams Advanced Engineering and Italdesign announced their partnership in April 2021 for a high performance, flexible EV platform: EVX, supporting a long-term vision for EV architecture. (Earlier post.)
This rolling chassis utilized Williams Advanced Engineering’s expertise in electrification, light-weighting, innovative chassis structures and vehicle and system integration.
