Delta E4 Coupe – Click above to watch video after the jump

The latest episode of Robert Llewellyn's plug-in-centric show Fully Charged has hit the Internet and this time 'round Llewellyn rides shotgun in the Delta E4 Coupe concept with technical director Nick Carpenter at the wheel.

Delta Motorsport
is a British engineering consultancy born out of competition. The carbon fiber-bodied E4 Coupe was initially developed to compete in Automotive X-Prize's mainstream class (it didn't make it very far in the competition). Today, Delta Motorsport refers to the E4 Coupe as an ultra-low energy vehicle and with its carbon fiber composite chassis, it's ultra lightweight too. The E4 supposedly gets up to 250 miles on a full charge. That's a sweet number, but only five of the electric coupes exist. That means that hopping the jump to catch video of Fully Charged's exclusive ride in the ultra-rare Delta E4 Coupe is probably your only chance to find your way inside. Hats off to Keith and Chris!

      oh yeah that blue picture reminds me they were the ones who didn't go to the xprize because they said it burned down.
      if their drivetrain is efficient they could well have won. it looks reasonably aerodynamic and presumably somewhat light (better be when you use carbon). hopefully we'll get more details in the later review.

      If only Ford UK would buy the rights to this car, and build it!

      Not to diminish Delta's efforts (AWD with hub motors and a lightweight carbon fibre body- and variable amperage direct drive is all good), but The Wasp also seats four (not two), arguably has a better and unique aerodynamic Sports Car presence, requires no undercar frame (carbon fibre or otherwise) and most importantly has a full upper solar shell, just for starters.See More

      A very exciting, great looking and promising EV concept.

      I hope it finds it way to market.

      Great work by Rob once more.

      They look good, will be light weight with carbon-fiber, will be interesting to see what the techie's do with this.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Sans the carbon fiber, for cost, what the CR-Z could have/ should have been :)! That's what it reminds me of most.

      Love the looks and the specs!

      As always, good job Rob! Still want you on a network doing this!

      Well done to them. Man I cannot wait to drive an electric....it's so much better than an IC in every possible way imaginable.

      I hope the idiots who run the big car firms finally stop purposefully delaying and stonewalling us and get with it. It's here....

      Now that's cool.

      Love the looks of this thing. I'd be really surprised if they could sell it for much less than $100K, which is a shame, but it's definitely one of my favourite EVs-in-development.

      ah, so that's what a 7th gen celica would look like as a hatch.

      Looks like the Leaf's attractive sister.

      Sorta like a GTR mixed with a Leaf..
