Ginetta G50EV: the new alternative to Tesla Roadster

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

UK's Ginetta Cars is aiming on a totally modern objective: a high-performance electric vehicle. Information on the vehicle remains closely guarded, but the vehicle's first stages of development are already in progress.

The G50 is Ginetta's most current addition to its range of race and street vehicles, with the first production model reaching Britain's streets earlier this year. Currently the firm is making an electric version that it alleges will be able to reach 120 mph (193 km/h) and reach up to 250 miles (402km).

A tri-battery power storage system and an electric motor will channel power straight to the rear wheels for robust handling dynamics and simplicity of powertrain construction.

The motor itself is a Zytek Engineering unit, built for the sole purpose of automotive utilization.It is the intention of Ginetta to build the whole drivetrain into a single incorporated pack with a limited external connectors of three: one for water (for cooling purposes), one for 300V high voltage electricity and one for 12V power.

Although the G50 EV alledgedly took to the streets for its initial evaluation some time in October, up until now the vehicle is only in its developmental phase, with the absence of a timeline or price range.

Ginetta's G50R and G50 Cup street and race vehicles are presently available for sale, however, for both street-going and competitive racing applications.
