Gordon Murray Automotive (GMA), the automaker founded by former McLaren F1 designer Gordon Murray, is reportedly working on an all-electric SUV. In an interview, Murray said that his company is working on two SUVs, one for GMA and the other for another automaker.
One SUV will feature four seats and front-wheel drive and the other SUV will have five seats and all-wheel drive. The price of these two SUVs is rumored to be cheaper than the seven-figure price tag of the GMA supercar.
The SUV is being developed by a separate company Gordon Murray Design, and will use a platform developed by another company in the Gordon Murray Group, namely the newly founded Gordon Murray Electronics.
The SUV is likely to take advantage of the iStream design and Murray’s manufacturing process, where instead of a traditional unibody and stamped metal, the car is assembled using a tubular frame in combination with pre-assembled composite panels featuring a honeycomb structure. iStream is claimed to not only reduce weight but also make production easier and more flexible.
