A 1,000 hp Electric Supercar is not something new, but it is very rare.
Rimac has a 1088hp Supercar which they have run on a track. It’s liquid cooled battery pack can get the Rimac Supercar to go from 0-to-60 mph in about 2.8 seconds. Precious few Exotic cars can do 0-to-60 mph in under 3 seconds. At normal highway speeds the Rimac can also cover a bit over 350 miles on a single charge. At the 190 Mph top speed your distance travel would be a fraction of that. At 190 mph I’d more concerned about having a tire blowout-melt from overheating that traveling a long distance.
Faraday Future made big splash at the 2016 CES show in Las Vegas. They unveiled their FFZERO1 “Concept” car. All Electric powered. Body and frame made from Carbon Fibre and composites. 1,000 hp from it’s four motors – one at each wheel. Racing Suspension. Drive by wire design. Room for one, the driver.
The FF ZERO1 is said to do 0-to-60 mph in under 3 seconds.
Faraday Future is positioning itself to compete with Tesla Motors. So far they have approx 400 very highly skilled employees. Essentially they are at the Design House stage. Creating and making a Production Electric Vehicle, is another story and a very expensive one.
