Sigma GTE is a new electric sports car prototype which has been developed by the US-based Sigma Motorworks company.

Powered by two Advance Motors DC motors that connected directly to the front and rear differentials, Sigma GTE may outputs 100 hp each from its motors while running at 144V. However, Sigma GTE doesn’t have a gearbox attached.

Sigma GTE has been designed using a Ford Mustang cockpit and offers four seats that’s better for the safety and interior quality. While Sigma GTE’s body is made from fiberglass and has been designed in-house by the manufacturer.

“This project is a test bed for a commercial high performance sports model we will bring to the market by early 2010, when we expect to sell 500 cars”, said Matias Gorfinkiel, head of operations. “This will be one of the fastest electric cars in the world”, said Steve Kase, head of development. “And it’s one of the few all-wheel electric cars around”, he adds.
