Delta Motorsport was founded in 2005 by Managing Director Simon Dowson and Technical Director Nick Carpenter to transfer skills honed in motorsport to areas where innovative solutions are critical to performance, efficiency and optimisation.
In 2011, with match funding from the East Midlands Development Agency and the Technology Strategy Board, Delta Motorsport built a small run of prototype electric E4 Coupés to show off their skills.
The carbon fibre chassis and body with Bristol Fighter like styling is powered by two Oxford YASA DD500 electric motors fed by an under-floor mounted 32kWh battery driving the rear wheels.
With a range said to be 140 miles from a 12 hour charge, the E4 Coupé will accelerate from rest to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 116 mph.
After driving an E4 Coupé around Silverstone race circuit happy housing guru and TV presenter Kevin McLoud described the vehicle as “very well behaved”.
