Gordon Murray Works On “Hybridization, Electrification, Hydrogen”

Gordon Murray Automotive – a supercar car manufacturer founded in the UK in 2017 by McLaren designer Gordon Murray – is perhaps best known for its high-revving 12-cylinder engine. Two of the company’s products, the T.50 and T.33, are old school hardcore performance engines with naturally aspirated V12 engines but it looks like the electrification process in the auto industry isn’t going to get past automakers.

No one is immune to hybridization and Phillip Lee, boss of the Gordon Murray Group, recently acknowledged the GMA research and development team has been working on a variety of power projects. The team is currently exploring several ideas to find the best electrification solution for manufacturers.

“Eventually we will all use electricity,” said Lee upper teeth in a recent interview. “I think that will be the end point and the reason is because the law will determine where we are all going. For GMA, that’s something we’re working on and we have R&D within Gordon Murray Technologies to explore different types of powertrains, to hybridization, electrification, hydrogen, alternative fuels… we’re looking at it all to see where the roadmap is. ”

In fact, this isn’t the first time Gordon Murray Automotive has been linked with electrified products. Earlier this summer, it became clear that the brand was developing two electric SUVs that would “change the way we think about range anxiety and vehicle dynamics.” These two high-riding EVs will mark the marque’s first entry into more general waters with both models expected to be priced as reasonably and lightly as possible. However, no specific technology details are available at this time.

Lee told the British publication that the brand will always focus on technology, regardless of the engine and powertrain it has to use. Fans will probably be happy to hear that lightness will always be a hallmark of GMA products as the company wants to maintain “emotion”.

“The ethos about our brand and what we do is we want people to drive our cars. We want to see them out and about and we want people to enjoy it. They are not museum stuff to just sit there,” Lee added.
