ePropelled's Electric Motors For Cars
ePropelled has developed an electric motor using magnetic propulsion coupled with a software controller that can achieve a 25% improvement in efficiency. This means that we can change the performance characteristics of the electric motor to extend the speed and torque range. Electric Vehicle manufacturers can use this improvement to extend range, reduce battery cost or implement a combination of the two all while delivering the performance the consumer really wants.
Electric Vehicles (EVs) are the fastest growing car segment with sales of more than one million personal Electric Vehicles in 2017. However, the industry has relied on government subsidies to make these vehicles price competitive with internal combustion engines. Consumers demand better performance, range, and infrastructure to make driving and owning Electric Vehicles practical. The high cost of battery packs (up to 50% of the vehicle cost) is limiting their progress. One option will be to wait for battery packs costs to drop, but that could take years. The other option is to install an ePropelled electric motor.
Key Benefits of Electric Motors
Compared with other electric motors, ePropelled’s magnetic propulsion motor has the following key benefits for electric vehicles:
- High torque without drawing high current from batteries
- Increased drive range or reduction in battery size
- High acceleration achieved (for speeds 0 to 100 kmh and beyond)
- Lower current rating leading to reduced electronics costs and greater reliability of components
- Eliminates mechanical gear box from the transmission, reducing weight
According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), electric motor systems consume more than 50% of global electricity and industrial motor systems account for more than 70% of the total global industrial electricity consumption. ePropelled’s technology would provide a much needed relief to the grid, not to mention the reduction in internal combustion engines and CO2 emissions.
