The American company introduced a 1500-horsepower electric SUVApril 20, 2020
Triton Solar is a privately held energy solutions company based in New Jersey. It was founded in 2012, and its main goal is to change the way the world creates, stores and distributes energy.
As part of the plan to improve the world, the electric car is being created, and Triton has just unveiled the first images and details of its first model, the eight-seater Triton Model H SUV. The company plans to release two versions of the Triton SUV – the base H and the H Performance model.
Both models will have standard four-wheel drive, thanks to four electric motors, one for each wheel, although they will not be completely located in the wheel hub. Triton claims that the base model will receive 1,000 horsepower, while the high-performance version will have up to 1,500 hp. The company was silent about the torque, but it was clarified that the most powerful SUV was able to accelerate to 96 km / h in 2.9 seconds.
Electric motors will be powered by batteries with Triton’s patented technology. It is planned that the base model will have a battery of 150 kW / h with an expected range of 800 km on a single battery charge. The top-end version of the Triton Model H will have a 200 kWh battery that can provide mileage of up to 1,100 km without recharging. This would be very impressive, especially considering the car’s weight of 3.5 tons. All versions of the Model H electric car will receive an intelligent air suspension that raises or lowers depending on operating conditions.
Interior images show a large number of digital screens. Model H is supposed to hold eight people. Although the Model H presented here does not have solar panels, Triton hopes to integrate this technology in the future. The roof is 90% glass, which would create a system of solar panels with a capacity of 700 watts, which would provide power for things such as air conditioning and other auxiliary systems.
Note that the company originally planned to build a sports car called the F4, but market research pointed Triton to a popular and versatile segment, which includes the Cadillac Escalade and Chevrolet Suburban. However, shortly after the launch of Model H, Triton still plans to show the F4 sports car. At the same time, production can be established in India as a way to reduce costs.
Model H is already available for pre-order. The basic model costs from 140,000 dollars, and its “charged” version – from 180,000 dollars. However, as stated in the press release, those who ordered the electric car earlier will receive a top version at the same price as the standard model.
