The car is based on a hybrid structure made of  carbon fiber and advanced composites and alloys.

Among the Members of the Board of Dendrobium Automotive Limited is Jens Sverdrup, who has a highly successful background in the supercar industry having worked with Lamborghini, Ferrari and Pagani but is best known for establishing the Koenigsegg brand. Recently he’s been responsible for raising Rimac Automobili’s profile globally.

Speaking about the underlying platform, he explains: “The construction of the D-1 is based on a unique Protocell carbon tub which possesses future adaptability for further generations of Dendrobium e-performance cars. Apart from advanced vehicle technology, the D-1 has enormous drama and presence thanks to our unique Bio-Aerial Locomotion door and roof opening system which was inspired by the Dendrobium name. A lot more details will be revealed over the coming months, not the least of which will be the D-1’s impressive range and rapid charge time.”

The D-1 will be officially publicly exhibited, for the first time in the UK, at Salon Privé (August 30th, September 1st).
