Over the past years, Silex Power has been developing a proprietary automotive platform with the intention to develop further our technologies and also introduce our first electric vehicle. This project is being unveiled today as the Valene Black Mamba, a high-performance 3-wheel sports car designed to awe.
Thanks to advancements in technology, Silex Power were able to create a prototype, the Valene Black Mamba, a high-performance electric 3-wheel super car designed to be as exciting and reliable as possible. The Black Mamba is a technologically advanced, superlight, vehicle in its simplicity, offering unrivalled performance, safety, looks and best of all, a truly unique driving experience.
Driver and passenger safety have been a priority throughout the design of the vehicle. The Black Mamba is built using strong seamless steel tubing, providing a strong protective shell for its occupants. The unique safety position places the driver and passenger legs well behind the front axle, reducing significantly the chance of injury in a frontal collision.
The car was also designed with a very low centre of gravity, so as to enhance its stability.
The Valene Black Mamba is a fully digital vehicle, sporting the most advanced multimedia systems to date. The car is smartphone activated with a three-tier user identification.
Silex is now accepting pre-orders for the vehicles. Pre-orders are taken via a form on the Valene Motors website. There is no commitment and no deposit at this time. When a pre-order is placed, the client will get in line to receive his Black Mamba once it is commercially available in 2017. The first 50 pre-orders will also get a free sound system upgrade to the Clarion Full Digital system, an upgrade normally worth € 3,000. Pricing for the vehicles starts from € 35,000 and depends on configuration.
