Gordon Murray’s T.27


Gordon Murray, an ex-McLaren Formula One designer has come up with a trio of prototypes of his T.27 electric car that will cater for city or town use. The T.25 (its predecessor) tips the scales at a mere 600kg, which is half the weight of a small family car on average. The T.27 comes with a tubular frame to absorb energy and does well to pass all relevant safety tests.

The manufacturing process, called iStream, has received £9m of investment, half of which came from the government’s Technology Strategy Board. iStream plants can be just one fifth of the size of a conventional car factory, as the cars are not made from stamped steel. All the parts are designed by computer and welded together rather than being stamped out of metal sheets, explained David Bott, Director of Innovation Platforms at the Technology Strategy Board.

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
