Aston Martin E-teuer concept EV scores high on performance and sustainability
What to expect in the future from an eminent brand that James Bond drives? The answer is ‘pretty’ much present in the above image. Exquisitely conceptualized by Jack Allenet, this is the Aston Martin E-teuer. Adroitly futuristic in its demeanor, gracefully curvaceous in its ‘racing’ body and arduously elegant in its overall form; this electric car certainly has it all. Supposedly inspired by the British automaker’s achievements at the renowned Le Mans track; the designer wanted to infuse that sublime essence of speed and style, albeit with dollops of sustainability.
The striking visual element aside, the conception has also been envisaged to exhibit an exhilarating level of performance. Zealously propelled by a power output of 400kW and a convincing torque of 750nm, the vehicle can romp up to a blistering top speed of 300 km/hr. Moreover, being ‘fueled’ by the efficient and green KERS, the car could accelerate from 0-60 (0-100 km) in just under 3 seconds.
Coming to the lissome body, the energetic styling is influenced from a plethora of fascinating sports cars such as the Aston Martin DB9 and Vantage, and even racing conceptions like the Le Mans LMP1. The overall weight is just limited to 500kg, while the performance capability is boosted by E-tuer’s intrinsic aerodynamic form and efficacious suspension. The car also incorporates the notorious F-duct system, which helps in reducing aerodynamic drag with enhancement of substantial speed.
Finally coming to the innovative design feature, the maneuvering mechanism (in relation to the EV drive train) can be adjusted to cope up with different roads (and even climatic conditions). This inherent flexibility of the drive allows optimum user convenience regarding acceleration, top speed, traction control, active braking, and even engine mapping. So, all in all, the conception certainly manages to successfully fuse the progressive attributes of design, performance and style along with elements of low emission technology.
Thanks, Jack Allenet!
