World's most efficient electric car revealed

Super green eco-car revealed at London event.

The choice of truly green vehicles environmentalists have at their disposal just got a little wider, with the announcement of the the T.27, the so-called "world's most efficient electric car".

As you might expect with such a title, there's not a lot of room in the T.27 for the shopping; it's a dinky three-seat affair about the same size as a Smart Car. Powered by a 25kW electric motor, it's not going to be bagging any Gumball trophies either, with a top speed of 105kph and a 0-100kph time of less than 15 seconds. However, as a chariot for the eco warrior, creators Gordon Murray Design are claiming it's on top of its game; the T.27's competitors reportedly use between 29% (the Smart EV) and 86% (the Mini-E) more electricity per mile than the T.27 to keep them humming along.

Gordon Murray claim the key to keeping the car green is in the weight. "Lightweight is the most powerful tool we have in our amoury in the fight against emissions and fuel consumption", says the actual Gordon Murray, CEO of Gordon Murray Design. "A lightweight car means a lightweight battery, increasing the levels of safety and reducing the retail price dramatically."

Environmentally-minded readers impressed by the T.27 have only until November to wait to see the T.27 in action on public roads, when it will be competing in the RAC Future Car Challenge, a drive from Brighton to London.
