Gordon Murray confirmed this, via his official blog:
“The T25 and T27 concept has now been sold to a customer and with a following wind a lot more drivers should be able to enjoy the centre drive experience in 2016.”
We’ll rightfully ignore the T25, as it’s a gas-burner. The T27 is a pure electric though, so that’s in our territory.
With an unnamed buyer now headed up the final development and production, we expect to see the T27 actually make it out onto public roads driven by the public. The concept-only T27 will be a part of the past as production appears to be imminent.
The T27 features 1+2 seating, with the driver positioned front and center. The tiny city car tips the scales at only 680 kg (1,499 pounds).
The T27 is unique in that it actually has crash structures, ABS and traction control—all of which are unexpected in a vehicle of this size. The T27 is claimed to be exceptionally strong with its tubular steel and composite floor adding to its overall strength.
