Yesterday we reported on the SSC Ultimate Aero EV which was rumoured to be in development, featuring an electric engine. Today these rumours were made official by SSC in a press release obviously propted by the leak. They clim that the car will be ready by late next year and will feature a 500bhp electric engine which will hold its charge for years according to SSC. There are plans for when this engine is complete to create a dual engined 1000bhp version also. We’re dubious as to whether the car will actually be available next year however it is a highly ambitious project. The lack of clear details also hints that the project is not far into the development stages.
