Gordon Murray Wants To Build An SUV
As for sizing, it will be under 157 inches long (smaller than a Ford Transit Connect) and will be offered with two battery sizes, the smaller of which will offer well over 100 miles of range. The really exciting news is that the entire car is expected to weigh just one ton, thanks to iStream composite architecture, so it should be fun despite its humble ambitions.
“It’s going to look good but it’ll be driven by usual packaging and aerodynamics as well,” says Murray. “We actually looked at a city SUV for a customer some years ago. I did the concept for that so I’ve got a very good package in mind, which I’d like to apply. It’s a different package from anything else out there at the moment.” We can’t wait to learn more about these EVs, and we’ll bring it straight to you. Hyundai Kona Electric, you’ve got competition.
