I don’t really have a suitable ‘zero-emission’ image so here’s a pic of what we all know GBS for – a ZERO! This one is their new Motul Edition model. Pretty!

Great British Sportscars is working on an electric project with Trelleborg Applied Technologies, Far-UK Ltd and Engenuity Ltd.

Funded by the Office for Zero-Emission Vehicles (OZEV) through The Niche Vehicle Network, Trelleborg’s applied technologies operation will undertake a research and development project focused on electric vehicle (EV) battery material and design.

The early-stage R&D stream initiative provides a platform for collaborative research in the area of zero-emission vehicle technologies within the UK niche vehicle sector.

The focus of the project is to develop a novel material as an alternative to aluminium, that can be integrated into an EV battery to reduce the overall weight of the battery case, supporting the decarbonisation of vehicles on the road and reducing emissions through light-weighting.

GBS will be working on the project for a six-month period, with findings and results published during 2022.
