yallacompare has announced groundbreaking plans to build and market a new type of electric car, dubbed the ‘yallacar’.

yallacompare, the Middle East’s leading comparison site, has announced groundbreaking plans to build and market a new type of electric car, dubbed the ‘yallacar’.

With sleek exterior styling, the futuristic two-door coupe will have fully autonomous capabilities, and it will be the world’s first electric car to be built on the blockchain with a decentralised manufacturing process based on 3D printing technologies. It will also offer drivers augmented reality (AR) features.

The move comes as a natural progression for yallacompare’s business as it continues to expand its range of offerings. Having already revolutionised car insurance distribution in the Middle East with its online insurance comparison platform, the company is set to do the same for the car manufacturing industry.

“Most of us at yallacompare are massive car fans, so the decision to build a car was an easy one to make. But while we all love a big, V8-powered supercar, we wanted our own car to be forward-looking, rather than nostalgic,” explained Jon Richards, CEO of yallacompare.

“As a result, we have plans to exploit every piece of cutting-edge tech that we can find. Blockchain? Check. Decentralised? Check. 3D printing? Double-check. When you read about these things you think they’re just buzzwords, but we’re putting them all into practice with the build-out of this car.”

Performance is at the heart of the yallacar. Its aerodynamic shape will be produced using the most up-to-date 3D-printing and blockchain-based manufacturing techniques. Every component will be 3D-printed – down to the nuts and bolts of the electric motors.

As for the motors, two will sit at each wheel, providing a combined power output of 932 bhp. Thanks to the yallacar’s lightweight, 3D-printed construction, the entire vehicle will weigh just one metric tonne, meaning a power-to-weight ratio of 932 bhp per tonne. In augmented reality simulations, the yallacar has a 0-100 km/h time of 1.8 seconds, and will reach a top speed of 380 km/h.

The battery pack powering the electric motor will also be 3D-printed; using new production techniques, it’ll be the first battery pack in the world to store electricity in plastic components, which gain power from completing complex algorithms on the blockchain. The car’s range is expected to be 900 km on a full charge.

yallacompare will also apply blockchain technologies to the yallacar’s autonomous driving functions. Based on fully decentralised mapping technologies, the yallacar’s self-driving mode will make it the world’s first car to offer Level 5 full autonomous driving.

The yallacar is expected to go into production mid-2019, with the first customer deliveries taking place in 2020.
