The British presented a “boxed” solution for creating electric carsOctober 21, 2019
Swindon Powertrain from the United Kingdom, in collaboration with iNetic electric motor manufacturer, Code, and Niche Vehicle Network, a niche carmakers association, has unveiled a ready-made 109-horsepower electric motor for various vehicles.
It is sometimes difficult for niche companies that produce various vehicles to adapt to modern trends due to the lack of their own developments. Therefore, the English company Swindon Powertrain decided to introduce its own “boxed” version of the electric power plant. It is available to anyone and is suitable for a large number of vehicles.
The kit includes an electric motor with 109 horsepower, a power inverter, a single-stage gearbox, a cooling system, as well as moisture protection. The total mass of the kit is 70 kg. However, the charging system and the battery itself are not included.
A number of companies were involved in the development (Swindon Powertrain, iNetic, Code, and the Niche Vehicle Network Association of Niche Automobile Manufacturers). Therefore, the solution is as versatile and of the highest quality.
The presented electric motor can be used as the main power unit, or as part of a hybrid system. Serial production will begin no earlier than the summer of 2020. Cost has not yet been announced.
Meanwhile, Mazda will introduce a new clean diesel engine in 2020. The Japanese automaker is planning to build a new diesel engine plant next year.
