The Italian Fulminea is the first legal electric hyper car with an hybrid battery pack

The project
I can proudly write about an amazing and futuristic Italian project: Fulminea.
“Fulminea”  is a next-gen first street legal electric hyper-car equipped with a powerful battery pack that deliver an unprecedented energy density of 450 Wh/kg (1.200Wh/l).
But nothing is born by chance and the Fulminea Project is the result of a merger agreement between “Automobili Estrema” and “ABEE (Avesta Battery Energy Engineering)“.
Automobili Estrema has been founded by  Gianfranco Pizzuto with the intent to produce electric high-end vehicles and “Fulminea” will be the first street legal electric vehicle to use an hybrid battery pack, which combines super capacitors with ABEE’s Li-ion solid state cells.
A third company is involved into this challenging project and it is IMMERCAR Elektronik.
The Fulminea Project will have ABEE delivering their proprietary solid state cells to IMECAR who will produce an high performance hybrid battery pack.
Fulminea is set to be delivered to its first 61 customers in Q3 2023 and will be produced in Modena:  the heart of the Italian Motor Valley.
Exterior styling
The exterior design has been made by EPTA DESIGN of Luigi Memola e Alessandro Fini.
Personally I have the pleasure to know Luigi and out of any doubts I can say that his way to produces car concepts is really amazing and innovative and the official web site is the proof of the evidence!
The elegance of the Fulminea’s design is enhanced by the front and rear tail lights produced by EST Mobile, that has integrated into the “blades” of the tails some functional features as well.
The all electric powertrain will feature 4 motors with a total peak power of 1.5 MW ( 2,040 HP) allowing the Fulminea to accelerate from 0 to 320 km/h (0 to 200 mp/h) in under 10 seconds.
With its hybrid battery pack of 100 kWh, the expected WLTP range will be of 520 km (323 miles).
Thanks to the innovative solid-state cells, the high-performance hybrid battery (with cell to pack technology) will reach an unprecedented energy density of 450 Wh/kg (1,200 Wh/l) with a predicted weight under 300 kg (661 lb) and a total curb weight of 1,500 kg (3,307 lb).
