Default Delta Motorsport presents its E4 Coupe





Quote:
Delta Motorsport’s E4 Coupe is a contender for the X-PRIZE, an eco competition that searches for the “greenest” cars in the world. Delta Motorsport is the only British/European company that has submitted an entry to this contest. The winner gets a $10 million prize fund from US insurance company, Progressive Insurance. To qualify, vehicles must be designed for mass production, be capable of at least 200 miles per charge and comply with certain braking and usability standards. Delta Motorsport hopes that its E4 Coupe, a zero emission four-seater, is up for the task.

The car can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in under 5 seconds, and reach a top speed of more than 100 mph. These figures match some of the top performance vehicles.

The first E4 will be made in April. Simon Downson, one of the company’s co-founders, said that Delta Motorsport is involved with the design of environmentally friendly vehicles because it faces many of the hurdles related to motorsport.

This includes maximum efficiency, light weight, good aerodynamics, etc. Downson divulged that the company collaborated with Oxford University on a lightweight, highly efficient electric motor. In fact, they have completed several road haulage aerodynamic programs to improve fuel efficiency.

It appears that the competition has very high standards, as there have been several upcoming “green” vehicles made by huge automotive firms that failed to meet its requirements. You’d be surprised to learn that the Ford Escape, Renault ZE and Nissan Leaf all didn’t make the cut. None of the teams that participate in the contest are from multi-national companies.

Looks like the Porsche Shooting Brake rendering that was kicking around for a while.
