Engineering the next generation of performance car

Author : Dyrr Ardash, Senior Commercial Manager

01 June 2020

High-performance cars are undergoing a revolution. Manufacturers are increasingly offering electric models and over the next decade, the idea of a flagship performance car will change from one powered by a combustion engine to something solely battery-powered.

Williams Advanced Engineering is the technical partner on the Lotus Evija electric hypercar

It is already happening in the world of hypercars – just witness the Lotus Evija, a ground-breaking project on which we are proud to be a technical partner. From the very top end of the market down, we see the rise in demand for high performance electric cars to be a major area of growth for Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE). 

With our experience in batteries through e-motorsport programmes such as Formula E, light-weighting through composites, aerodynamics, thermodynamics, systems integration and low volume production, it really is a sweet spot for our capabilities – quite simply, we believe we’re at the cutting edge of energy storage, e-powertrains and system integration into performance platforms.

What’s key is our ability to provide a bespoke, rather than a “one-size-fits-all” approach. We can electrify an existing Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) model, make an electric version of an existing sports car even faster and more dynamically capable, or support the development of something entirely new, starting from a blank sheet of paper.
