Everrati Automotive Limited (Everrati), the leading global technology company specialising in the redefining and futureproofing of automotive icons, has announced that both its electric GT40 and Land Rover Series have passed electric vehicle safety testing for their state-of-the-art electric powertrains.
UNECE R100.01 is a vehicle safety standard devised to test electric vehicle powertrains to ensure that they are safe for use. The testing involves a vigorous assessment of the electrical safety of the High Voltage components installed within a vehicle, and includes protection against electric shock, protection against direct and indirect contact, isolation resistance testing and overall vehicle safety.
As part of the GT40’s battery safety and validation process, the car recently passed testing at HORIBA MIRA’s world-leading facilities in Warwickshire, UK. Featuring a state-of-the-art proprietary EV powertrain with a power-dense 62.5kWh lithium-ion battery and sector-leading 700V architecture generating up to 800bhp and 800Nm of torque and 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds, it represents the pinnacle of redefined EV supercar performance and technology.
Meanwhile, Everrati’s redefined Land Rover Series IIA, which is available in the UK already, passed testing at the Netherlands Vehicle Authority – RDW. Fully satisfying its testing, it is now approved for sale in the Netherlands where customer deliveries have already begun.
The advanced EV powertrain featured in the Series IIA has a range of up to 150 miles, combined with regenerative braking, AC and DC fast charging capability. With a 60kWh battery and 150bhp and 300Nm from its electric motors, it offers both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive modes.
Justin Lunny, Founder and CEO of Everrati comments: “The achievement of our Land Rover Series IIA and GT40 in attaining compliance to the vigorous UNECE R100.01 electrical safety testing is a testament to Everrati’s OEM-grade engineering, design, and quality processes, which continues to raise the benchmark for the standards of electrified classics.
“Every Everrati product is the result of the most robust vehicle development and the attention to detail from our team of highly-skilled specialists. Both the GT40 and Series IIA, like all of our models, represent the very best in electrified icons and underline how we are continuing to set new standards in this rapidly growing sector.”
Headquartered in Oxford, UK, Everrati joined forces with Superformance in July last year with the mission of precision re-engineering the legendary Le Mans-winning car with a custom-designed electric drivetrain for a zero-emissions future. Superformance, based in Jupiter, Florida, is a global leader in the manufacture of 1960s-era continuation component sports cars and produces a rolling chassis for the GT40 built under license. As a result, it is the world’s only GT40 EV listed in the official Shelby Registry.
