ELECTRIFICATION SINCE 1997
FROM PERFORMANCE TO EFFICIENCY
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 that 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
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.
