Advanced Hybrid Drive Train

 

  • The t-001 drive train offers the economy and low CO2 benefits of an electric vehicle without the range restrictions. The t-001 can deliver 600Nm of torque instantly and achieve a top speed of 80mph. Using the range extender engine the t-001 can achieve 400miles+ on one tank of fuel
  • The hybrid control system will include a GPS enabled  Electronic Horizon Supervisory Control System that will optimize the range extender engine running to maximise economy, and minimise emissions and noise in restricted and urban locations
  • The 25kwh lithium ion battery pack can be recharged from a 3 phase power supply in 2-3 hours
  • Power from this battery drives a 75kw electric motor driving the rear axle
  • This gives a range capability of up to 66 miles in full electric mode
  • When the battery reaches a predetermined state of discharge the on board range extender internal combustion engine starts and powers the electric motor and recharges the battery. In this mode the total range combining the electric range and one tank of fuel is in excess of 400 miles
  • When the battery reaches an adequate state of charge the range extender engine switches off and driving is continued in all electric mode till the battery reaches the state of discharge again and the process repeats itself
  • The regenerative braking system also provides charging for the battery, utilizing energy that would otherwise be lost
  • The t-001 is a series hybrid in that the road wheels are only powered by the electric motor and the range extender engine solely runs the on board generator
