Another electric-powered sports car that was to debut at the cancelled Geneva Motor Show has finally been unveiled with Apex showing its AP-0 concept in London. 

Apex was founded in 2018 by brothers Jason and Gary Leung who plan to produce their vehicles in the UK with a team that brings high-performance automotive and Formula 1 race-car engineering experience. The team also includes British car designer Guy Colborne.

Apex says its car will go into production in 2022, will sprint to 62 mph in 2.3 seconds, have a top speed of 190 mph and a range of up to 320 miles, and will have a base price of £150,000 ($185,000).

Lidar system built into car’s roof will help driver deal with traffic and other potential road hazards

The car’s design features “a teardrop-shaped glass roof that fuses with a structural, aerodynamic fin,” the company said. The fin also houses a LiDAR camera for assisted driving technologies. 

Apex plans to build an FIA-approved racing circuit and driving school near Hong Kong.
