Project Triumph TE-1 has released the first styling sketches of the final prototype for its electric motorcycle, which has just finished phase two of its development in a four-phase program.
The collaborative project has brought together Triumph Motorcycles, Williams Advanced Engineering, Integral Powertrain and WMG at the University of Warwick, funded by the UK government’s Office for Zero Emission Vehicles, to design and build specialist electric motorcycle technology. It began officially in May 2019.
With innovation in battery and powertrain design, initial test performance results are said to have far exceeded the current benchmarks and industry targets. Developments in performance, efficiency and range are enabling Project TE-1 to fully deliver the partnership’s prime objectives: to enhance the profile and credibility of British industry to provide substantial input into future electric motorcycle strategy from Triumph.
“The completion of phase 2 and the promising results achieved to date provide an exciting glimpse of the potential electric future and showcase the talent and innovation of this unique British collaboration. Without doubt, the outcome of this project will play a significant part in our future efforts to meet our customers’ ambition and desire to reduce their environmental impact and for more sustainable transportation,” commented Nick Bloor, CEO at Triumph. “This important project will provide one of the foundations for our future electric motorcycle strategy, which is ultimately focused on delivering what riders want from their Triumph: the perfect balance of performance, handling and real-world usability, with genuine Triumph character.”
