The Chesil Speedster E                                   

A cutting edge electric drive train  and chassis for our beautiful Speedster  

We believe that city centres are the perfect place to use and be seen in a Chesil.  Increasingly, this is going to demand an emission free propulsion system.   Although towns would seem to be the ideal home for the Speedster E, it will be just as happy out in the countryside and on longer trips.  

Chassis, steering and brake design have come a long way since the 356 was designed and the Speedster E's chassis has been created from the ground up around our EV drive train.  This  ground up re-design has allowed us to use rack and pinion steering, all round disc brakes and fully independent suspension.  Our aim is to produce a totally analog, electric sports car that is not only thrilling to drive, but stops and handles in a predictable modern manner. 

The new Chesil chassis and EV drive train

Stronger and more torsionally rigid

A strong torsionally rigid chassis immediately improves the handling of the 356 Speedster. It also minimises scuttle shake that can plague older sports cars.  

Fully independent suspension

Our chassis has been designed around modern fully independent front and rear wishbones, with poly bushes and adjustable coil over shock absorbers. It not only improves the handling but allows for the ride to be tailored to your taste.

Rack and pinion steering

Modern rack and pinion steering gives light, precise steering. Although the car is light to drive, we are also able to add our electric power steering system as a factory option.

All round, servo assisted disc brakes

Whilst the original brakes were quite capable, they did not have modern servo assistance. By not only improving the braking capacity, but adding servo assistance, the Speedster E pulls up in a way that any modern vehicle would be proud of.

Compact 36 kw battery pack

True to the Speedsters light weight origins our 36kw power pack helps keep the Speedster E's weight well below 1,000 kgs. This combination of power and weight makes for exceptional performance and 150 mile plus range.

CCS fast charge option

CCS fast charging can be optioned at build. These fast chargers, found in charging stations country wide, are able to charge at up to 100 kw per hour. This means that you can give the car a complete charge in under 45 minutes. 

120 kw electric motor

The 120 kw electric motor delivers 160 bhp through a differential direct to the rear wheels. This makes for a very lively sports car with the power delivery controlled through our software. 0-60 mph is just 6 seconds.

Zero emissions, ULEZ compliant  

As the Chesil Speedster E is a brand new EV it benefits from all the same legislation that large manufacturers enjoy. Our EV is a zero emission car, compliant in all ULEZ and low emissions zones There are also major tax advantages to buying them through a business.
