Electric hypercars are regular hypercars without internal combustion engines. They are limited production automobile series with a captivating performance, unique styling, and highly technologically advanced features

Tech entrepreneur Priven Reddy, who was born in South Africa, wants to introduce the Ararkis Sandstorm electric hypercar to his native country. His goal is to begin producing the electric vehicle (EV) locally in addition to selling the $2 million (R37 million) hypercar locally. The largest obstacle to setting up a manufacturing business, he claims, has been bureaucracy, despite the fact that he has been interacting with multiple auto dealerships to sell the Sandstorm.

The brains behind the Ararkis Sandstorm, a limited-edition electric hypercar with South African origins, are Reddy, a Durban native. A hypercar is a kind of sports car that combines cutting edge technology and tremendous performance. These cars usually push the limits of automobile engineering in terms of performance overall, aerodynamics, speed, and acceleration.

Hypercars are typically expensive, limited-edition versions. The Aston Martin Valkyrie, McLaren Senna, Pininfarina Battista, Lotus Evija, Bugatti Chiron, and Ferrari LaFerrari are a few more hypercars available on the market.

The EV’s maker, Ararkis Automobili, reports that the Sandstorm is currently in the development stage, with a production prototype anticipated in Q3 of this year. It does state that only 20 cars are expected to be produced.

bringing concepts to life
Reddy, who started out selling used cardboard in Durban, now divides his time between the UK, where the company is headquartered, and the United Arab Emirates.

He oversaw a number of ICT companies in SA, including Kagiso Interactive. He began developing the concept for the hypercar at the Eieon Motor Group in South Africa seven years ago.

When asked what inspired him to create the vehicle, Reddy responds via email to ITWeb: “It was the only sensible way to reconcile my passion for oil-guzzling supercars with my quest for a more sustainable, green world, an idea I cherished since I was a teenager selling used cardboard scraps.”
