Created 1359-horsepower electric motor for hypercars and vacuum trains HyperloopApril 7, 2020
HyperPower Technologies, an Australian technology company, has developed an electric motor capable of delivering 1359 horsepower equivalent. It can be installed on hypercars, used in the aerospace industry, and even in transport systems of the future, such as Hyperloop vacuum trains.
HyperPower is owned by Michael Fragomeni, the founder of Top EV Racing. This is probably why the developers teamed up with their colleagues to build a promising technology and built a Top Fuel dragster equipped with four electric motors with a total return of 5434 horsepower.
Monstrous power is confirmed by dynamic characteristics: from a standstill to 200 kilometers per hour, the dragster accelerates in 0.8 seconds, to 531 kilometers per hour in 3.7 seconds. The maximum speed is 612 kilometers per hour. Fragomeni calls the QFM-360-X electric motor the culmination of his work. Moreover, its scope is much wider than it might seem at first glance.
In addition to motorsport, these are hypercars, the aerospace industry and Hyperloop vacuum trains. At the same time, up to ten QFM-360-Xs can be mounted on one shaft, which will produce an incredible 15,586 horsepower.
Meanwhile, the British Equipmake reported on the creation of an electric motor with the highest power density. With a mass of about 10 kilograms, it gives out 304 strength. For comparison: the 40-pound Jaguar i-Pace engine develops 203 forces.
