If the Caterham Venture V does make it into manufacturing, it could be the primary automobile from Caterham to function a standard roof. From the renders, it is evident that this light-weight EV takes a variety of design components from the Caterham C120 (which by no means made into manufacturing) and the Jannarelly Design 1. This isn’t completely stunning on condition that the Design 1 was the brainchild of Caterham’s present chief designer Anthony Jannarelly. Like most different automobiles in Caterham’s lineup, the corporate touts the Venture V as a light-weight and easy automobile. The present plan goals to restrict the load of the Venture V to roughly 1,190kg (2623 lbs) within the 2+1 configuration, made attainable by a carbon fiber and aluminum composite chassis. Moreover, an optionally available 2+2 configuration will likely be out there.
The Venture V will function a battery electrical powertrain with a 200kW (272PS) single motor within the rear axle. This motor will likely be complemented by a 55kWh USOC lithium-ion battery pack that includes superior thermal administration. Charging the battery from 20% to 80% may be completed in as little as quarter-hour utilizing a 150kW DC fast charger.
When it comes to efficiency, Venture V displays fast acceleration, reaching zero to 62mph (100kph) in lower than 4.5 seconds. The estimated high pace is 143 mph (230 kph), whereas, based on WLTP requirements, the goal vary is roughly 249 miles (400km). Caterham plans to equip the Venture with double a wishbone suspension setup on the entrance and rear, with absolutely adjustable geometry. It would additionally get electrically assisted energy steering, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires (19″ on the entrance and 20″ on the rear), and high-performance brake discs throughout.
