Ginetta G50 EV Prototype

What is it?

you’re looking at the beginning of electric revolution.

The Ginetta G50 EV is a pure-electric, rear-wheel drive car that the Leeds-based company it can make road-car reality the next few years.

Developed in with Zytek Engineering British company) the G50 EV gets a electric motor mounted in of its rear axle that power straight through a to the wheels.

Three sodium batteries, chosen for their are placed in the nose of the car and where the tank would go and are encased in and surrounded by a vacuum for extra

These can be recharged at a standard three-point plug socket, take six hours to charge flat and will provide the G50 up to 250 miles range, though company execs admit average use will reduce to 200 miles.

But the Ginetta is different in it is guaranteed to return a minimum of 150 miles.

This is achieved by the advanced batteries and brushless DC but is more to do with a fly-by-wire that limits power to extend range. Ginetta that even with track use the G50 EV would achieve 150

What’s it like?

The basic of the electric Ginetta is taken from the G50 race car, and as you get race car levels of feel and The steering is heavy but perfectly and satisfying to use, providing a sense of connection with the

Cornering ability is equally with no body roll and very firm suspension that a circuit is probably the place for the G50 EV Prototype.

Still, the suspension can’t be as it’s not yet been altered for when it will get much forgiving damping – something it really needs if it’s to be as a road car.

Because of this the car doesn’t quick. In fact if feels sedate when you initially the throttle and don’t get the instant you would generally expect.

The G50 EV is still a long way from and it will be a different proposition it is. For a start, it’s likely production cars will get settings to offer different outputs depending on whether you performance or range.

In this form the G50 EV is a crude thing to but even so it’s obvious how potential there is in the concept of a car this level of handling an electric motor with range and a reasonable price

Should I buy one?

You can’t, and likely that you won’t be to for a while yet.

Even execs admit that the of the EV is dependant on battery evolution and

But the will is there and the G50 EV proves the company also has the know-how. could well go on to create a and attainable electric sports
