Vanda Electrics Dendrobium
Vanda Electrics is one of Singapore’s leading e-mobility companies. In 2017, it engaged Williams Advanced Engineering as technical partner on its two-seater electric hypercar concept, the Dendrobium.
Calling on the division’s specialist skills in aerodynamics, lightweight structures, low volume build, vehicle integration and, of course, electrification, Williams Advanced Engineering took the project from the design stage to dynamic concept car.
Making its world debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the striking Dendrobium incorporates an automatic roof and doors, which open in a synchronized manner, similar to the orchid from which it gets its name. Under the skin, Williams Advanced Engineering has worked with Vanda Electrics on an electric powertrain designed to meet performance targets of a top speed in excess of 200mph and 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds.
