Elation Hypercars unveiled the Freedom last fall and now the model is inching closer to production as the company has announced a strategic partnership with Cascadia Motion.
Under the terms of the deal, the companies will work together to develop the Freedom’s electric powertrain. The base model is slated to have three electric motors that produce a combined output of approximately 1,427 hp (1,064 kW / 1,447 PS) and 1,062 lb-ft (1,440 Nm) of torque.
If that’s not powerful enough, the company also has plans for a quad motor variant with around 1,903 hp (1,419 kW / 1,929 PS). This should enable the car to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in approximately 1.8 seconds, before hitting a limited top speed of 260 mph (418 km/h).
The Freedom will be offered with two different T-shaped battery packs, which are structural and have a capacity of 100 or 120 kWh. The former is targeted to deliver a range of 300 miles (483 km), while the latter should increase that distance to 400 miles (644 km).
Two different charging systems will be available including a standard J1772 setup. Customers can also get a “≤350 kW CCS fast charge” system that allows for an 80% charge in as little as 12 minutes. If you have an additional eight minutes, the battery pack can be fully replenished under ideal conditions.
There’s still no word on when the Freedom will be launched but, when the car was announced, Elation said pricing would start at $2 (£1.5 / €1.7) million. At the time, the company also mentioned an Iconic variant with a 5.2-liter V10 engine, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and an all-wheel drive system. It’s slated to have 750+ hp (559+ kW / 760+ PS) and a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time of 2.5 seconds.
