Does India’s First Electric Hypercar, The Mean Metal Motors Azani, Have In It To Take Down The Tesla Model S Plaid?

The Azani comes with ridiculous specs like 0-96 kmph in 2.1 seconds, top speed of 354 kmph, 1,000-horsepower, etc.

Mean Metal Motors had come up with a hybrid concept called the M-Zero back in 2015 that would’ve become India’s first supercar ever. The setup would feature an electric motor working in tandem with a twin-turbo V-8 engine. But, courtesy of the paradigm shift to electrification, MMM had to shift its focus, too.

Fast forward to the present day, the startup has introduced an electric hypercar with insane specs. It will make 1,000 horses, sprint to 96 kmph in 2.1 seconds, and will have a top speed of over 350 kmph. Can the production-spec Azani be able to take down the current world’s quickest and fastest production car, the Tesla Model S Plaid?

Turbocharged vs Naturally Aspirated – Watch The Nissan Magnite Take On The Maruti-Suzuki Brezza On The Drag Strip

Even diesel-only vehicles were now offered with petrol mills which seemed a little odd initially. One such product is the Brezza, now powered by a 1.5-liter petrol engine. The naturally aspirated engine was recently put to test on a drag strip against a turbocharged, three-cylinder engine of the Magnite on the drag strip. Do you think the Magnite, with its extra toque and lightweight build, get the win over its veteran rival, or will be wise man school the new kid on the block with its free-revving engine?
