GAC’s New Aion Hyper SSR EV Hits 60 MPH In 1.9 Seconds But Is Cheaper Than Most Ferraris
China’s GAC has released a host of new details and dozens of new photos of the Aion Hyper SSR, recently unveiled to the world as a potent all-electric hypercar promising jaw-dropping performance.
Powering the Aion Hyper SSR are a pair of electric motors that combine to pump out over 1,225 hp and 8,850 lb-ft (12,000 Nm) of torque. Curiously, GAC hasn’t revealed the size of the car’s battery pack, other than confirming that it is an NCM lithium-ion pack. As such, it is unclear how far the car can travel on a single charge.
However, what we do know is that the Aion Hyper SSR is very fast and capable of sprinting to 62 mph (100 km/h) in a mere 1.9 seconds.
It’s not just breathtaking performance that makes the car desirable but also the fact that it’s quite the looker. The body is made from carbon fiber and takes inspiration from GAC’s ENO.146 Concept and the Enpulse Concept from 2020.
Found at the front of the car are a set of sleek headlights with LED daytime running lights. GAC has also equipped the car with frameless ‘Sky’ doors while also developing turbine-inspired wheels with carbon fiber inserts. Visible at the rear are LED taillights and an active rear wing that increases downforce at high speeds.
The interior of the hypercar is also quite intriguing. GAC describes it as having “bi-level instrument panels” and exposed tubular structures throughout, creating a unique exoskeleton that gives the interior a very unique feel. The automaker has also equipped the car with a racing-inspired steering wheel with a flat top and flat bottom that houses all important vehicle controls. A large 14.6-inch infotainment screen also comes standard alongside an 8.8-inch digital instrument cluster.
The car manufacturer has revealed that the standard Aion Hyper SSR will set back customers 1.286 million Chinese Yuan ($181,000) when it goes on sale while the SSR Ultimate has been priced from 1.688 million Chinese Yuan ($238,000). Deliveries are expected to commence in October 2023.
