More range than ICE hypercars?

    Buggati Chiron at full power empties its gas tank in 8 minutes. Going +400km/h that is mere ~60km of range.

    Using all those 200kWh in mere 8 minutes means average output of 1500 kW, I suspect the 3 motors wont be capable of that (2000HP). Hence longer full power runtime and longer range.

    I have to assume it would. A high performing ICE has terrible gas mileage even when it's going slow, a high performing electric should be reasonably efficient if you go easy on it.
