New announcement: TVR is resurrected as an electric car brand

But you don't drop the V8 engine. At least not for the first model Griffith.

The revival of English sports car brand TVR has been postponed again and again. And again. We have to go all the way back to 2017 to find the first launch of the Griffith model. Since then, it has been quiet around the brand. Some will think too quiet. But now there is something new. The brand, which still has a factory under construction, says that it will also launch the Griffith as an electric car. Yes, electric car. Even so, the English have not dropped the agreement on deliveries of 5-liter V8 engines with Ford. The gasoline engine will reportedly get 500 horsepower, and TVR is not willing to say much more at this time. Nor about the electric motor. Other than that TVR will sponsor a number of Formula E races in 2022. Namely in London and Monaco. The Lobe in Monaco is already to be held this weekend. TVR chairman Les Edgar hinted in the same vein that Griffith will not be the only electric model from the brand. However, this does not mean that we will see a TVR on the roads for the time being. According to Autocar, the factory in Cardiff, England, is not finished until late 2024. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EusteicEz_o&ab_channel=RaceJam
