Electric BMW X6 tested in harsh conditionsApril 26, 2020
The network posted a video of test tests, on which the novelty showed the ability to rotate around its axis.
Elaphe Propulsion Technologies from Slovenia, which is developing motor wheels, decided to conduct a very unusual experiment with a prototype electric BMW X6. The company’s engineers installed their equipment on the car and tested whether it could rotate around its axis almost in place. The result was shown on a video that was published on the Web.
The prototype BMW X6 equipped with proprietary Elaphe L1500 motor wheels, which have their own disc brakes. The return of such a wheel is 150 horsepower with a torque of 600 Nm, thus providing a total power of 600 hp. Such indicators provided cars with excellent dynamics – it spends less than 5 seconds to accelerate to the first 100 kph
The results of the experiment were amazing – the car quietly made several revolutions around its axis in place.
The experiment could be continued, but most likely the driver was already dizzy. Note that a similar technology is also being developed by the American startup Rivian. A new Rivian R1T pickup truck with a proprietary system should be launched on the conveyor next year.
