Vazirani Automotive is all set to launch India’s fastest electric hypercar, the Ekonk – with the innovative DiCo technology and a claimed top speed of 309 kmph.
After working for automotive giants like Rolls-Royce and Jaguar, Chunky Vazirani founded Vazirani in 2015 with a vision to create next-generation electric vehicles that would put India on the world map of extreme vehicles.
Having launched India’s first hypercar concept, ‘Shul’ at the Goodwood Festival in the U.K, he earned the honor of creating the first HyperCar of India. Vazirani Ekonk, a single-seater, spaceship-looking car that claims to be not just the fastest car ever built in India but one of the fastest accelerating cars in the world. The car also tests the company’s unique battery solution that replaces the century-old complex liquid cooling tech.
“For us, Ekonk signifies our real beginning, where for the first time design and innovation comes together. It’s our first vehicle that’s ‘alive’.”Chunky Vazirani
Biomimicry (studying how animals and humans use breathing to regulate their body temperature) combined with some ancient Indian manufacturing techniques resulted in the invention of the DiCo technology. DiCo enables the batteries to cool directly with the air, as opposed to needing liquid cooling that most manufacturers, including Tesla, use to keep their batteries cool. Vazirani’s new technology makes EVs lighter, faster, safer, and cost-effective. Most importantly, it also increases the range of EVs.
