The British engineering company Qwest has created an electric station wagon based on the Tesla Model S P90D. The developers claim that they built the world’s fastest car with this type of bodywork. The first photo of the electric Tesla was published by Autocar.
The project was named P90D-SB – from Shooting Brake. The electric car turned out to be 14 kg lighter than its donor due to a special rear section made of carbon fiber. The technical component of the Tesla electric car has not been changed. Tesla Model S P90D is equipped with two electric units, which in total give out 762 horsepower.
The novelty can accelerate from a rest to 100 km per hour in 2.8 seconds. For comparison, the 670-strong hybrid station wagon Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is gaining the first 100 km per hour in 3.6 seconds.
Qwest has been working on the Tesla-based Shooting Brake electric car for more than one year. The cost of turning an electric car into a station wagon was about 70 thousand pounds sterling. The public premiere of the novelty will be held in May at the London Motor Show.
Qwest is not the only British company that has created an electric station wagon based on Tesla. A similar project is also run by Niels van Roij Design from London together with the Netherlands body repair company RemetzCars. The novelty should debut in March.
