Gordon Murray, the great creator of McLaren F1 has been busy the last couple of years developing his very own vehicle, which is way way different that the F1! It’s called the T.27 and it’s an electric city car. But since Murray always aim high, the T2.7, which is under construction in collaboration with Zytek Automotive, is set to be the most efficient EV in the world.

Apparently the car’s design has not been finalized yet, but the powertrain is 25 kW electric motor backed by 12kWh batteries, which deliver a not so good performance as following: 0 to 100 km/h in under 15 seconds (they hope!) and top speed of 105 km/h. The estimated range is 80 – 100 miles. So it’s hardly the best EV ever made!

T.27 has a length of 2.50m, width of 1.30m and height of 1.60m, and it offers s wheelbase of 1.78m. The car’s turning circle is 6.0 meters and the weight including the battery is 680Kg.

Professor Gordon Murray, CEO of Gordon Murray Design said:

“The Technology Strategy Board have been incredibly supportive of the T.27 programme and together we are working to keep this in the United Kingdom.  It is a great opportunity to work with Zytek Automotive and our other partners on this very exciting programme.  We always strive to lead the way in automotive design and our current goal is to maximise efficiency of electric vehicles.”

Bill Gibson, Chairman of Zytek Automotive said:

Zytek’s new innovative powertrain, developed from our substantial experience of EV and hybrid vehicle production programmes, will substantially reduce the weight and cost of the electric engine, whilst delivering  the quality, refinement and driving experience that T.27 customers will demand.”

Iain Gray, Chief Executive of the Technology Strategy Board said:

“This is another example of the UK positioning itself to benefit from the economic opportunities offered by the emerging low-carbon vehicles market.It’s great that the T.27, a fantastic example of smart engineering and sustainable design, is at the forefront of this. We are also glad that we were able to support a project that enabled Gordon Murray Design and Zytek Automotive and the other partners to work together to be truly innovative.”
