XING Mobility’s Miss R Story

It looks like when Tesla launched its next-generation Roadster, it might
have set the bar for new hypercars coming out since several companies have
been benchmarking their upcoming vehicles based on some of the specs that
Tesla released.

Now Taipei-based startup Xing Mobility unveils its new electric hypercar
today after having compared the specs with Tesla’s new electric vehicle.

Xing Mobility originally unveiled a working prototype of its hypercar ‘MISS
R’ right after Tesla’s unveiling of the Tesla Semi, which also happened to
be the unveiling of the next-gen Roadster.

They released the following specs and compared them to Tesla’s new Roadster
: 0-100 km/h in 1.8 seconds (Roadster: 2.0 seconds), 0-200 km/h in 5.1
seconds (Roadster: unreleased but 0 to 161 km/h in 4.2 seconds) and a max
speed of over 270km/h (Roadster: over 400 km/h). They didn’t disclose the
range, while Tesla announced over 620 miles of range (~1,000 km) for the new
Roadster ...

Now they say that they are unveiling the full vehicle, which they claim is
the “world’s first electric supercar with on-road and off-road

They are sticking to the original specs that they unveiled last year even
though the vehicle still doesn’t have an interior.

Xing also hasn’t demonstrated the insane acceleration that they are claiming
but they did release some footage of that “off-road” capability:

They claim that they achieved this kind of performance with a 1-Megawatt
(1,341hp) powertrain equipped with 4 independent electric motors powered by
a battery pack of their own design.

It’s made of 98 “modular blocks” with each 43 cells, which are submerging
directly in “3M™ Novec™ 7200 Engineered Fluid”. They claim that is results
in “one of the highest power density EV battery packs on the market.”

The battery pack system is also swappable. The company describes it:

    “In displaying the vehicle elevated above its 4116-cell, 98-module
battery pack, the company also plan to showcase its extremely fast battery
swap technology that sees the entire battery enclosure exchanged within 5
minutes. As well as tackling the challenge of range and charging restraints,
the vehicle is designed for exceptional driving experiences previously
unthinkable in gasoline vehicles. Fully race-enabled, its battery-swap
technology and dual-personality setup is primed for track sprints, hill
climbs, and endurance races alike.”

While they have been talking about bringing ‘MISS R’  to limited production
with 20 units to be built in 2019 with a price starting at $1 million USD,
Xing Mobility says that the powertrain is the real product and they want to
leverage the development for other vehicles – starting with commercial

XING Mobility’s Co-founder and CTO Azizi Tucker said:

    “The commercial vehicle market is primed for a conversion to electric
drivetrains due to functional needs, increasing emissions requirements and
public noise reduction. However, this market is currently extremely
underserved with many electric vehicle technology manufacturers focusing
only on passenger vehicles”.

It’s why ‘MISS R’ will be showcased at the AutoTronics Taipei [.tw] show
alongside a 3.5 ton electric transit vehicle referred to internally by the
team as “Mr T”.

They haven’t released any specs about the truck other than saying that its
powertrain consists of “6,300 lithium-ion 18650 cells in 150 reconfigurable
and immersive-cooled battery modules and equipped with a 350V high power
density induction motor.”

The company wants to use its same “LEGO-like” battery pack technology to
electrify several kinds of vehicles.

Electrek’s Take

It’s interesting how quickly other companies are using the new Tesla
Roadster as a benchmark when unveiling their own hypercar. It looks like the
Roadster has the new numbers to beat.

But in this case, it doesn’t look like it will actually by a competitor.

Instead, they are mainly focusing on their battery pack technology, which
kind of reminds me of Kreisel Electric in Austria.

Unfortunately, we don’t know enough about their technology to say if they
truly have something special here, but a 1-Megawatt (1,341hp) powertrain in
such a small vehicle is certainly impressive.

Apr 11, 2018 - It's called the Miss R, and it's described as a
rally-inspired supercar for on and off-road driving. The company has been
testing a working prototype on a variety of terrains, including on the dirt
to develop its all-wheel drive system. Power comes from four 350V electric
motors and a 1000kW battery pack. XING Miss R previews 1000kW EV powertrain,
