Inspired by the DFV engine, we have been working with Gardner Douglas Sports Cars to develop their Lola T70 Moda from a space frame chassis to integrate structural batteries into their new carbon fibre monocoque chassis.  Structural batteries:

  • Are 3½ stiffer than ‘Blue Book’ steel trussed frame equivalent.

  • Provide 50% of total chassis torsional stiffness.

  • Estimated energy density of 271 wh/kg.

Thanks to Aerospace UP programme for funding this project – we could not have done this without you.
