    1. Galatea All electric roadster by Faraday Motor Works

    2. Creation of Galatea • Galatea was born out of an idea of creating an affordable all electric roadster completely out of off-the shelf parts to improve reliability and cut cost of ownership. • To improve driver experience Galatea uses all electric propulsion together with aesthetic body of the historic XJ13 Jaguar.

    3. Design of Galatea • The body for the Galatea was selected to be a replica of the famous Jaguar XJ13 • In 1967 XJ13 was Jaguar’s first V-12 platform and answer to the challenge to remain competitive in the LeMans racing circuit. • Aesthetic appeal of XJ13 was so strong that Jaguar discontinued its production for fear that it will cannibalize sales of then successful model E-type • Only oneXJ13 was ever build. • The famous Jaguar now resides at Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Museum, attracting attention and visitors from all over the world.

    4. XJ13 Reborn • Although XJ13 is not available for private ownership, replica version of the body is now available in a kit form from a number of suppliers. • Galatea combines the body of XJ13 with all electric propulsion system. • All of the Galatea components and subassemblies are available in catalogs.

    5. Construction of Galatea • Unlike the original XJ13 that was build as a prototype to race once, the body of Galatea was redesigned using modern materials and manufacturing techniques for an extended use, safety and durability. • Addition of an all electric propulsion drive further enhances performance and energy efficiency.

    6. Comparsion between XJ13 and Galatea • Jaguar XJ13: • Top speed: 175 mph (at MIRA) • Engine: Quad overhead cam 4.993L Jaguar V-12 – mid engine • Max HP: 502 @ 7,600 RPM • Max Torque: 386 lbs ft @ 6,300 RPM • Galatea: • Top speed: 150 mph • Engine: 312V AC electric motor • Max HP: 105 • Max Torque: 325 lbs-ft @ 0 to 8000 rpm • Unlike piston engines that have low torque at low rpm an electric motor maintains constant torque over a wide range of rpm

    7. Electric Advantage • Zero emission! Galatea produces no harmful emissions of any kind. • Low cost of ownership. Electric cars need very little maintenance compared with gasoline counterparts. 2c /mile compared with 10 c/mi for typical gasoline engine. • High efficiency: Electric car gets an equivalent of 230 mpg. • Completely constructed from off-the shelf parts to cut cost and lead time • Cost $60000 • Lead time <3 weeks

    8. Galatea • When a creator falls in love with his work, it comes alive. Jean-Léon Gérôme
