Electric car from Formula One designer

Gordon Murray, an ex-McLaren Formula One designer has come up with a trio of prototypes of his T.27 electric car that will cater for city or town use. Interestingly enough, the T.25 (its predecessor) tips the scales at a mere 600kg, which is half the weight of a small family car on average. The T.27 comes with a tubular frame to absorb energy and does well to pass all relevant safety tests in case you were wondering. Just a thought though – it can hit 60 miles per hour, but what happens when a really large truck overtakes it, will the T.27′s relative lightness cause it to swerve or skid?
