Sunbeam Tiger : Lightweight 2 Seat Electric Car Design

Ryan Skelley conceived the concept of The Sunbeam Tiger during his Transportation Design course on Coventry University. It is an electric drivetrain with a pack of lithium-titanate battery which takes fewer times to charge than a lithium-ion battery. A fully charged battery can last around 4 hours along with the discretionary 3-phase charger which have made the maximum range of this car around 800 miles. Skelley has shown theoretically that the car can go 0-60 mph within 2.3 seconds and the top speed would be just around 160 mph. Moreover, the proposed materials for constructing the Sunbeam Tiger are extremely recyclable and eco-friendly.The Tiger concept has been designed for the year 2025 (to coincide with the 100 year anniversary of the land speed record), and with the current pace of innovation in the field of batteries and motors performance such as this is not that far away.
