Design firms create hyper-efficient electric car
on Thursday,November 05,2009 21:11
The effort to limit the world''s reliance on fossil fuels has taken another step forward, as Gordon Murray Designs and Zyteck Automotive have announced the creation of what analysts are calling the world''s most efficient electric car.
The project, made possible by a $14 million donation from the Technology Strategy Board, utilizes a unique new system called iStream, a manufacturing process developed by GMD that utilizes different construction materials, processes and concepts to produce lighter, smaller, but roomier vehicles.
"The iStream manufacturing process behind (the car) is all about sustainable, low energy process by design," says technical director Gordon Murray. "The program is a great opportunity for us and our partners to create what will be the world''s most efficient electric vehicle. An opportunity to start from a clean sheet of paper combined with our disruptive manufacturing technology will result in a product which truly pushes the boundaries of urban vehicle design and further protecting our mobility."
Zyteck, who has designed a number of drive systems for cars, busses and commercial trucks, also based their designs with green thinking in mind.
The goal of the project, called the T.27, is to produce a functional automobile while minimizing its carbon footprint.
