Singapore firm develops Dendrobium electric supercar with a little help from Williams

A firm out of Singapore has confirmed plans to unveil an electric supercar called the Dendrobium at the 2017 Geneva auto show.

The firm is Vanda Electrics whose first two products were an electric scooter and a small electric delivery truck. The supercar is a much more ambitious product, but Vanda had a little help in its development.

The help came from Williams Advanced Engineering, the technology offshoot of the Williams Formula One team. Williams Advanced Engineering has helped a number of automakers with specialized projects including Nissan for the GT-R Nismo and Jaguar for the C-X75 concept and more recently the I-Type Formula E race car.

Williams Advanced Engineering serves as technical partner in the Dendrobium project and will also help with eventual production of the car. Vanda says it is also looking at additional areas of collaboration.
