Vision’s Innovative & Sustainable 1789 Hypercar Is Fueled By Biomethane

Aug 11, 2020

Four years ago, a team of young automotive designers set out to create an alternative to the fossil fuel-reliant hypercars of the modern scape. The rapid adoption, and subsequent acceleration, of electrified models aside, the French outfit quickly decided to deviate from the path with the ‘1789’ — a sleek, sophisticated platform that will be powered entirely by biomethane.

Honoring the French Revolution of 1789, the Vision ‘1789’ hypercar is an homage to the tenacity of the country’s innovative populace. Calling upon transmission, hardware, and powerplant designs from Welter Recherche Technologie Industrie (WRTI), the vehicle is proposed to forgo electrification and fossil fuel dependency for a “smarter,” and more plentiful alternative. With technologies and inspiration from one of Peugeot’s former designers at its back, the 1789 will boast biomethane fuel in either liquid or gaseous form and will introduce a streamlined, aerodynamic body catered to high-speed acceleration. Beyond that, not much is known about the vehicle. If you’d like to take a closer look at its exterior, however, head to the company’s website, where you’ll be able to see the hypercar in its rendered glory.
