P1-E – British Electric Sports Car

by Isaiah on January 24, 2009

P1-E British Electric Sports Car

Created by former McLaren designer Jim Dowle, the P1-E will be the next generation of British electric sports car. The P1 will be powered by lithium-ion batteries, will reach 60mph in a claimed 2.9sec and will have a limited top speed of 130mph. The whole car will weigh 1055kg and have a range of 230 miles. The P1-E will use a four-wheel-drive system to harness the 590lb ft of torque developed by the electric motors at either end of the chassis, with combined output for the twin motors expected to be 290kW (389bhp). No word on when the P1-E will hit the market, but JJAD hopes to have a prototype up and running by later this year. [LeftLane]
