Hong Kong, May 25th 2018 – Electric Vehicle startup XING Mobility presented their rally-inspired supercar to an audience of business leaders and industry analysts at Goldman Sachs’ TechNet Conference in Hong Kong this week.
The annual conference brings together industry experts and thought leaders to discuss opportunities and challenges for the technology industry. At this year’s TechNet Conference, XING Mobility celebrated electric mobility’s impact on global progress by presenting Miss R, their 1 Megawatt supercar, elevated above its 4116-cell, 98-module battery pack to expose what the company consider to be “the core of their electric powertrain systems”.
The international debut of their electric super car at the TechNet Conference follows XING’s release of Miss R’s first on-road/off-road test footage last month.

This week, the company also took the opportunity to launch their collaboration with Taiwanese Artist Tong Yang-Tze by displaying the car complete with a modern black-and-white Chinese calligraphy livery. Explaining the collaboration, XING stated that “Tong Yang-Tze is an internationally recognized calligrapher known for her bold and innovative forms, who has reinvented traditional Chinese calligraphy to resonate with a contemporary generation.
Like Tong’s work, Miss R is intended to be ‘renegade’, a platform to prove that next generation mobility breakthroughs may not be born out of legacy automotive giants, but from makers and hackers like XING Mobility”.
Once activated at its full potential, the supercar’s four 350V motors and 1 Megawatt (1341 horsepower) battery pack is projected to reach performance levels of 0-100km/h in 1.8 seconds and 0-200km/h in 5.1 seconds. The detached battery pack display also reveals extremely fast battery swap technology that sees the entire battery enclosure exchanged within 5 minutes, tackling range and charging restraints.
With preparations underway to make the car available for orders in autumn this year and a complete prototype unveil set for 2019, the company hope that using Miss R as proof of concept, more and more vehicle makers will take advantage of XING’s groundbreaking developments in EV technology.
However, speaking to an audience of technology leaders, the company’s co-founders raised concerns that the commercial, industrial and recreational vehicle industry may be left in the dust despite recent progress.
According to CEO Royce YC Hong, “A considerable number of cells are needed to power electric vehicles, and the R&D and financial investment needed to develop, connect and package these cells often far exceed the budgets of small-medium sized vehicle manufacturers. It has taken established electric car manufacturers like Tesla and Nissan years to perfect efficient but complex battery packs which are highly tailored towards their specific vehicle types, and there are very few readily-available and reliable options for commercial and industrial vehicles”.
To that end, the company is already working with vehicle makers from around the world to apply the battery and powertrain technology from Miss R in city buses, ride-sharing scooters, construction equipment and special-purpose boats.
XING’s immersion-cooling, modularized battery system works by directly submerging batteries in 3M™ Novec™, an engineered cooling fluid, vastly improving heat transfer and cell uniformity, and allowing for market-leading power density.
According to Co-founder and CTO Azizi Tucker, “the battery pack’s LEGO-like design caters to the wide variety of shapes, sizes and power requirements that you see within commercial fleets. It enables us to power our client’s vehicles with minimal R&D and tooling, and uniquely enables us to deliver one-off custom pack design for prototyping”.
