The Ariel HIPERCAR was officially unveiled on Day 1 of the Low Carbon Vehicle show at Millbrook in Bedfordshire.  As the main exhibit on the government stand HIPERCAR demonstrates stage 1 of the HIPERCAR project as the platform for the a new Ariel car as well as the launchpad for the technology it contains.  The turbine range extender, cooled battery pack, lightweight high power motors and inverters plus the battery and electronics control systems, that will power the vehicle to record breaking performance, have all been invented and produced in the UK. The second phase of the project begins now to bring the car to production in 2020.
