The new electric car based on Ariel Nomad was created as a demo model. With its help, the creators were going to show how the new electric drive created by the American company and its partners works.

To turn the Ariel Nomad SUV into an electric car, BorgWarner specialists replaced the traditional 2.5-liter gasoline engine with 235 hp. from Honda to a 268-horsepower electric powerplant with two electric motors. About this writes the foreign publication carscoops.com. The drive here is transmitted to the rear wheels, and the engines operate independently of each other. Which, however, does not prevent the novelty from demonstrating an improved steering response. A battery of 30 kWh with liquid cooling is responsible for the performance of electric motors. The battery capacity may vary depending on the purpose of testing a car.

 The prototype was built in just six months. The open design of the “donor” Ariel Nomad helped accelerate the process, which allowed engineers to easily remove and install components.

 It is known that the company is going to use the built prototype to test its latest developments and test new technologies. So in a series of electric Ariel Nomad is not destined to go.
