Now Gordon Murray is obsessed with creating a unique city car, called T.27. The Gordon Murray T.27 is unveiled as London ultra compact city car. The design and development of the project cost £ 9 million, half of which were invested by the UK government-backed Technology Strategy Board.
Gordon Murray T.27 is a project that was completed in just 17 months from conception to a running prototype, including the design of a new electric powertain by Zytek Automotive Ltd. The T.27 achieved recently first class results in the EuroNCAP 50 km/h impact crash test, confirming the integrity of the chassis.
2011 Gordon Murray T.27 is one that would address the problems of CO2 emissions, city congestion, parking and low cost. He therefore patented a new manufacturing process, called iStream, which enabled him to produce new levels of lightweight structure and safety in city cars.
The car is the most economical amongst electric city cars: per km, it consumes 29% less energy than the Smart EV, 36% less energy than the Mitsubishi iMiEV, and a staggering 86% less energy than the Mini-E, making the T.27 easily the world’s most efficient electric car.
2012 Renault Fluence Z.E four-door with pure-electric model will launch in the market in 2012. The car saloon will carry an on-the-road price of £22,850, which drops to £17,850 (US$28,500) after the £5,000 UK Plug-In Car Grant has been deducted.

The Renault Fluence Z.E is the most affordable electric car in Britain (not counting quadricycles like its own Twizy or the G-Wiz) undercutting its rivals by a “sizeable margin”. As an example, the French firm gave the Mitsubishi i-Miev electric mini that costs £6,140 more than the Fluence Z.E. at £23,990 (US$38,302).
You can also called the Renault Fluence Z.E as zero-emissions French sedan, it is powered by an electric motor that develops 70kW (95-horses) of power and 226Nm (167 lb-ft) of instant torque on tap, with its lithium-ion battery offering a driving range of up to 115 miles or 185 kilometers.
Honda has joined the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) in Europe to demonstrate the viability of fuel cell technology and support the essential development of a European hydrogen refueling infrastructure. Honda will support CEP activities by providing two FCX Clarity fuel cell vehicles. Honda firmly believes that hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles are the ultimate solution in reducing CO2 emissions from road transportation.
Honda’s announcement coincides with Air Liquide – a major international producer and distributor of cryogenic liquids and gases – revealing its commitment to the CEP.
CEP is Europe’s leading fuel cell vehicle and hydrogen infrastructure demonstration project, bringing together automakers (including Toyota, Kia, and Volkswagen) with infrastructure and energy companies and the German government. CEP’s main goal is to prep Europe for hydrogen mobility.
Line reports that there will be no entry M25 for the U.S. market, leaving the $47,700 M37 as the base model. While it’s unfortunate that Infiniti won’t offer a more affordable alternative to the nearly $50,000 M37.
The 2.5-liter V6 that currently resides under the hood of the G25 only produces 218 horsepower and 217 pound-feet of torque, and since that already feels a bit weak in the G, we can’t imagine that it’d make for a truly engaging M.
It’s not like the 2.5-liter engine is all that more efficient than Infiniti’s outstanding 3.7-liter V6, either. Under the hood of the G sedan, the mill averages 20 miles per gallon in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway. For comparison, the 330-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 averages 19 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.
