Bristol To Make New Limited Edition Electric Sedan

Since it went bankrupt in 2011 and bought by Frazer-Nash Group, Bristol focused mainly on restoring and selling its older models. The company showed plans to build an electric supercar last year and now it seems that a high end luxury sedan might follow to kickstart the company.

The new limousine will be aimed at expensive luxury sedans like Bentley and Rolls-Royce, coming with a price of around €300,000 ($408,000) and probably boasting the same luxury and close dimensions.

Following the GT supercar, the flagship sedan will come with four brushless electric motors, each powering one wheel, juiced up by a flat floor-mounted battery. An efficient three-cylinder gasoline engine will sit at the front and act as a range extender.

The company is still secretive with the details, revealing only that they have a first draft and technical concept of the future sedan and that the car won’t come by in less than two years.

Kamkorp Autokraft, part of the Frazer-Nash Group, acquired assets of Bristol Cars in April 2011, re-establishing the connection between the automaker and the group which dates back to 65 years ago. Their target now is to combine Bristol Cars’ tradition and iconic marque with Frazer-Nash’s pioneering technology in electric and range-extended powertrains.
