The word

Gordon Murray T.25 City

Several specifications were released last month on the electric version of the car, but the release was scant on design photography. Gordon Murray has now released mockups showing the look of the T.25, along with more specifications.

The full reveal will take place at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment in Oxford, England. The 1,212 pound car is a little over four feet wide and not quite eight feet long.

It seats up to 3 in a 1+2 arrangement and the cab opens by hinging forward like a cab-over semi-truck. The car has 51 horsepower coming from an inline 3-cylinder engine mounted at the rear and is capable of 62mph while getting almost that (61.9) in miles per gallon. This petrol version is an update from the earlier all-electric plan, both of which will be options offered as part of the car's modular design.

The small size and hinged-forward compartment mean that three T.25s can be parked in one parallel parking slot, side-by-side.

And so ...

The seating arrangement, you can see, is fairly optimistic, but the front-center driver position does give better visibility and driving dynamics.
