Gordon Murray Design announce the Specification and Performance Targets for the T.27 City Car, a pure electric drive vehicle designed to fully optimise packaging, weight and performance. T.27 has a top speed of 65mph and a range of up to 100 miles. It is just 2.5m (8.2 feet) long, weighs a mere 680kgs (1,500 lbs) and uses a 33 horsepower (25kW) electric motor. Projected emissions are 43g/km CO2 for the combined cycle and 33g/km CO2 for the urban cycle alone, with zero emissions from the car. Full lifecycle CO2 damage will be 42 per cent less than the average European car.
