ELECTRICAL MOBILITY

ELECTRIC DRIVE SYSTEMS ARE BECOMING THE BENCHMARK FOR ENERGY-OPTIMISED TRANSPORT

Carmakers have developed practical market-ready road vehicles fitted with lithium-ion batteries. The tram industry mirrored this trend and trams can now cross the squares of French cities without power lines over distances of several hundred metres using battery power and trolley buses switch to batteries for reserve power. Bertrand Piccard's SI2 circumnavigated the planet using solar power, eForce supplies retail sales outlets with mineral water, beer, chilled products and other consumer goods using its eFleet, yachts recover residual energy when under sail so they can motor on when becalmed, and ferries recharge at docking points. Today, electric motors are the only permitted propulsion systems on many inland waterways.

It was therefore appropriate to develop the first Plus Energy vehicle for a specific type of steep terrain. The possibility of feeding the surplus energy into the local electricity grid justifies the public interest.

The lifespan model of the modified drive system will furnish proof that electric vehicles of any size can be operated continuously much more cheaply than conventional engines and will consequently prove to be advantageous for transport from an environmental and economic viewpoint.
