Vazirani Automotive presented the fastest Indian car, the Ekonk. It’s an EV supercar that uses air cooling for the battery pack, as opposed to liquid cooling used by most other modern electric vehicles.
“Biomimicry — studying how animals and humans regulate their body temperatures — combined with some ancient Indian manufacturing techniques resulted in the invention of the DiCo technology,” says founder Chunky Vazirani. Thanks to DiCo Ekonk weighs only 738 kilograms that makes it one of the lightest cars in the world. Despite the unimpressive weight, the engine power is 722 horsepower (531 kilowatts) and Ekonk can accelerate 100km/h in 2,54 sec.
“For us, Ekonk signifies our birth, when design and innovation intertwine together. In the Indian scriptures, Ekonk means the beginning of the divine light, the big bang. The Ekonk is our bang”, — Chunky Vazirani, founder of Vazirani, says.
Vazirani Ekonk is a single-seater hypercar and the company claims that it has been designed to be one of the most fluidic cars aerodynamically. For now, the Ekonk is just a prototype and it won’t be produced, but the technologies used for it could be implemented into a production vehicle based on the Shul.
