W Motors plans electric supercar with Everrati tech

By automotive-mag.com 2 Min Read

Dubai-based W Motors made a name for itself last decade with the launch of a supercar costing more than a Bugatti and featuring elements like diamond-studded headlights.

The company in more recent years has expanded into offering light commercial vehicles, including some powered by electric motors.

It now plans a return to its supercar roots, albeit with an electric powertrain featuring technology supplied by Everrati, a British company that specializes in converting classic cars into EVs, and which has previously shown an 800-hp electric powertrain. W Motors’ previous Lykan Hypersport and Lykan Supersport supercars delivered similar performance using twin-turbocharged flat-6 engines developed by Germany’s Ruf.

Timing for the launch of the electric supercar wasn’t mentioned.

Plans for the car were announced on Monday by W Motors and Everrati as part of an announcement for a wider partnership between the two companies. The partnership will include the supply of Everrati’s flexible and scalable electric powertrain technology for additional W Motors models, including potentially the company’s Ghiath SUV supplied to Dubai’s police force and various security companies.

W Motors will in turn become Everrati’s manufacturing partner in West Asia, and will handle production of Everrati products for the region at a plant under construction in Dubai. An Everrati R&D center will also be established at the W Motors plant.

W Motors is also working with additional partners to establish an EV plant in Jordan, one of which is Jordan’s Manaseer Group. Vehicles to be built at the plant are expected to include both light commercials and passenger vehicles.
