Delta E-4 Coupe electric car
Delta E-4 Coupe, the new electric cars in the automotive world. This car was launched at Silverstone on May 9, 2011. Delta E-4 Coupe is an electric car developed by Delta Motorsport. E-4 can accelerate from 0 to 96 KMH less than five seconds. And it only takes one time between battery recharges to roam up to 320 km.
Advantage Delta E-4 Coupe partly because the use of carbon composite on the chassis (designed by Delta Motorsport and created by KS Composites) so that the car weighs only 85 kg. In addition, because of cooperation with Oxford University and Oxford YASA Motors, so it can generate 600 nm of torque and 120 hp power. Then, sitting position is designed to be low and batteries buried under the floor in order improving handling and reducing aerodynamic constraints.
Dowson says: “We became involved with the design of hybrid and electric vehicles because they share many of the engineering challenges associated with motor sport – light weight parts, aerodynamic efficiency and innovative packaging solutions. We’ve had to re-think road cars from the beginning, looking at low cost composite structures, system efficiencies and novel occupant packaging.”
Delta Motorsport was founded by Simon Dowson and Nick Carpente in 2005. Both are experienced in the world of motor sport and automotive. Development is funded by East Midlands Car Development Agency (EMDA).
