ELECTRIFICATION SINCE 1997
FROM PERFORMANCE TO EFFICIENCY
Zytek has been a pioneer of electric vehicles since 1997 when we created a full electric car based on the Lotus Elise.
Since then, notable successes include our drivetrains that powered the world’s fastest two wheel drive road-going electric vehicle around the Nürburgring, and the world’s most efficient road car.
Our work with Audi on the R8 e-Tron helped to develop a road going sports car which still holds the record for the world’s fastest two wheel drive road-going electric vehicle around the Nürburgring.
We were also lucky enough to work with the pioneering Gordon Murray Design on the T.27, which is considered to be the world’s most efficient car.
In this section we present a number of our electric road vehicle projects that have pushed boundaries in many different ways.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We developed from scratch a brand new lightweight 25kW electric motor, control system and battery that are all fully integrated, to ensure that maximum efficiency.
For more information see the Gordon Murray T.27 case study.
With the Audi R8 e-Tron, we had the opportunity to develop the electric engine, gearbox and inverter in parallel, which in turn allowed vehicle electrical losses to be minimised, which in turn maximised both performance and range.
