Electric cars are taking off, slowly but surely: nearly 50,400 plug-in cars have been sold to UK buyers in the first 10 months of 2018, up 30% over the past year as Brits switch to battery power.
If money really is no object, the Nio EP9 is one of the most extreme electric cars on sale anywhere. It’s already shattered the Nurburgring lap record thanks to a megawatt of power from its brawny electric motors.
Surface Transforms’ next-generation carbon ceramic technology and custom-made Titanium bells gave the EP9 a tiny 30 kg total brake disc weight across four 408 mm diameter discs while still achieving 3.3 G of deceleration during braking.
Surface Transforms plc (LON:SCE) are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use.
