New Electric SSC Tuatara is the next limited-edition SSC Tuatara hypercar. Earlier, in May this hyper machine hit a speed of 295 mph. But from reports, it looks like things might get more exciting. SSC CEO and founder Jerod Shelby announced that an electrified version of the Tuatara is on the way, and will likely have all-wheel drive.
A recent interview with Motor Authority revealed a few interesting details about the new Tuatara in the works. The new hypercar is set to have a small production run, but it won’t be part of the 125 regular Tuataras, which also includes the 25 Tuatara Aggressor track cars which are set for completion by the end of 2025. There was no mention of how many of these electric Tuataras are coming, but SSC did confirm that the all-electric Tuatara is very much in development right now.

Shelby confirmed to Motor Authority that the new electric hypercar will have AWD, along with a set of electric motors. As the current version of the Tuatara is RWD, there is no clarity on how Shelby and SSC could rename the car. For now, though, it is unofficially the electric Tuatara. The CEO then stated, “The electrification of the car will make it a more well-rounded vehicle”. This meant that the addition of electric motors will enhance other areas of the vehicle’s dynamics. This version of the Tuatara has 1,000 lb of downforce, compared to the 362 lb of the standard model.
