Hispano Suiza Carmen EV Launches in Geneva

The Hispano Suiza Carmen Is A 1,005 HP Electric 1930s Throwback Luxury Car.


If you are very wealthy and want something unique, fast and green, the Hispano Suiza Carmen is the car for you.

You will have to hurry though, as only 19 of these €1.5 million super electric throwback luxury cars will be made. If you are in the Geneva area for the next two weeks and are looking to be entertained, you should head to the Palexpo.

The Hispano Suiza Carmen is like nothing else on the expansive show floor. One reason is that the Carmen is inspired largely by Hispano Suiza cars that were in the 1930s, in particular the 1938 H6C Dubonnet Xenia. The cabin is incredibly luxurious with acres of wood, leathers, alcantara all surrounding a 10.1-inch touchscreen.

The Carmen’s design is as functional as it is eye-catching. Its surprisingly low .325 drag coefficient allows it to slip practically unnoticed as little wind will be ruffled as it silently drives by.

The fully electric Hispano Suiza Carmen is powered by a pair of electric motors, one at each rear wheel, and not one per axle. That’s right, the Carmen is RWD only but fear not, the two motors generate 1,005-horsepower, enough to launch the car to 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds.

The T-shaped Lithium Ion battery pack should be enough to provide the car with more that 248 miles (400 kilometers) of range on a full charge.
