The WEV Coupe was developed to demonstrate the flexibility and benefits of the company’s flexible PACES platform.

 

A 1950s-inspired, two-seat fixed head sports car, focused on driver involvement and engagement, with near 50:50 weight distribution, a kerbweight of less than 1,000kg and a communicative chassis exhibiting carefully-honed ride, handling and steering characteristics. Its mid-mounted electric motor produces 85kW which, when combined with a 40kWh battery, provides WLTP range of 350kms. 

 

The Coupe showcases the ability to take a product from concept to functional road going prototype in just six months, the adoption of the PACES platform dramatically reducing design and manufacturing resources and lead times when compared to traditional automotive practices.
