With the prom­ise of over 1,000bhp and a cen­tury sprint time be­low three sec­onds, the Den­dro­bium’s per­for­mance is elec­tric. And that ex­pres­sion isn’t just fig­u­ra­tive. The all-elec­tric su­per­car is set for a launch at the Geneva Mo­tor Show in the next few months, and in ad­di­tion to its blis­ter­ing per­for­mance fig­ures and space-age de­sign (CEO Larissa Tan ad­mits some el­e­ments of its de­sign and per­for­mance will change be­fore its mo­tor show un­veil­ing), it’s also home-grown, the brain­child of a Sin­ga­porean com­pany.

In­ter­est­ingly enough, Vanda Electrics also makes the Ant, a mini-truck ca­pa­ble of haul­ing a one-tonne pay­load, and the Mo­tochimp scooter.
