The automotive world is buzzing with excitement as Saab engineers reveal their latest creation, the NEVS Emily GT. Unveiled recently and receiving high praise from the prestigious British TV show, Top Gear, this groundbreaking electric vehicle has the potential to reshape the industry with its innovative design and exceptional performance.

The NEVS Emily GT has been shrouded in secrecy until now, leaving enthusiasts eagerly awaiting its unveiling. In this article, we will delve into the features and unique characteristics of this remarkable vehicle, as highlighted by Top Gear, shedding light on its capabilities and the unparalleled driving experience it offers.

Prepare to witness a paradigm shift in electric vehicle design with the NEVS Emily GT. Developed in a mere 10 months, this futuristic GT car boasts an astounding range of over 600 miles on a single charge, thanks to its massive 174kWh battery.

NEVS Emily GT Prototype In-Wheel Electric Motors

What sets the Emily GT apart from its peers is the integration of four electric motors within each of its 18-inch wheels, a concept made possible by NEVS’s acquisition of Protean Electric. These in-wheel motors from Protean Electric offer numerous advantages over traditional electric vehicle designs.

By placing the motors directly in the wheels, NEVS Emily GT maximizes interior space, resulting in a more spacious cabin and the ability to accommodate a colossal 175 kWh battery. This innovative configuration also offers exceptional handling capabilities, thanks to individual torque vectoring on each wheel.

Top Gear’s test drive of the NEVS Emily GT showcased its outstanding performance during slalom maneuvers and cornering. The torque vectoring system allowed the car to navigate with agility and precision, highlighting the unique advantages provided by the in-wheel motor design.

According to Top Gear’s automotive expert, Tom Ford, the Emily GT delivers a driving experience on par with that of a traditional electric super saloon. The car offers rapid acceleration, responsive steering, and confident braking, captivating drivers with its exceptional dynamics.

In addition to its remarkable performance, the NEVS Emily GT features a fully functional infotainment system, comfortable seating, and luxurious amenities. It’s almost hard to believe that this car is a one-off prototype, underscoring the dedication and expertise of the Saab engineers who crafted this exceptional vehicle during a challenging period for the company.

Despite its exceptional capabilities, the future of the Emily GT project hangs in the balance. NEVS, the company that acquired Saab, has put the project up for sale. While the public unveiling has generated significant interest, it remains uncertain whether potential buyers will step forward to take on the challenge of bringing this innovative electric car to production.

The NEVS Emily GT, lauded by Top Gear, represents a significant leap forward in electric vehicle design. With its in-wheel motors, impressive range, and exceptional driving dynamics, it boldly challenges the established conventions of EV engineering. Although the project’s future remains uncertain, the NEVS Emily GT serves as a testament to the ingenuity and dedication of Saab engineers.
