British car manufacturer Delta Motorsport has launched its 150mph Delta E-4 electric coupe.
The EV has been developed by the company from the ground up and should be good for a range of 200 miles on a single charge with a 0-60mph sprint time of less than five seconds, according to Delta.
The light weight chassis is made from carbon composite and weighs 85kgs – less than 35 per cent the weight of a comparable steel structure “despite being designed to pass EU crash tests.”
Power comes courtesy of Oxford University-designed YASA electric motors, which produce “well over 443lb ft of torque and over 118bhp each while only weighing 23kgs”.
The Delta E-4 Coupé will take part in the RAC Future Car Challenge on November 5 – an event that showcases low energy vehicles in a 60 mile ‘rally’ from Brighton to London.
