KleenSpeed KAR EV technology

ZoomKleenSpeed KAR EV technology
KleenSpeed aim to become a leader in the global electric car marketplace through advanced engineering and design with the production versions of the KleenSpeed KAR. The KleenSpeed KAR VX-1 will be a real world viable 2-passenger vehicle and is the first in a series of EVs based on the KAR Platform technologies.
 
The KAR project consists of 4 stages which are being simultaneously designed and engineered to accelerate final development.
STAGE 1 - E-MAX EV System
The system currently under development and testing for the KAR Platform is designed to offer performance, efficiency and range. Final specifications have not been set, but prototypes feature a KleenSpeed Energy Storage system featuring 40kWh of energy delivered through a KleenSpeed Controller to a 100 kW/134 HP electric motor with 221 lb ft of torque. Performance goals for the MAX EV System are a real world range of 120-140 miles per charge with true sports car performance.

STAGE 2 - KAR Platform
The EV system is integrated into the KAR Platform via a modular design concept featuring a front subframe, complete with all steering and suspension components; a rear subframe containing the controller electronics, motor, transmission and rear suspension; and a sealed energy storage system consisting of the batteries and battery management system. The modular nature of the platform components provides for the flexibility to readily adapt the MAX EV System to many other vehicle applications.
STAGE 3 - KAR VX-1
KleenSpeed has forged a relationship with an electric vehicle manufacturer in China. The KAR will adapt the MAX EV System to a modified version of a recently developed small car EV currently being built and sold in China with the Chinese manufacturer's own basic EV system based on lead-acid battery technology. The vehicle will be ready for public unveiling and road testing in early 2012. Market target for the KleenSpeed VX-1 is a retail price in the $30K range in the US. The KAR Platform will also integrate into other model configurations offered by their manufacturing partner.

STAGE 4 - KAR VX-2
KleenSpeed's design team is now at work on the concepts for the second generation KAR. The body and interior will be manufactured by their partner in China, then fitted with the KleenSpeed KAR Platform for sale into US and global markets beginning in 2014.
 
For more attend Electric Vehicles Land Sea Air USA 2012 External Link ,where uniquely we reflect the new realities that there are now six key enabling technologies and they are competing in all forms of EV, hybrid, pure electric and land, water and airborne, manned and unmanned. Speakers from ten countries detail the situation in their parts of the world including SYNPER 3 from Singapore, first to fly an electric helicopter recently, showing how up to 35% of helicopter crashes could be avoided with hybrid electric technology. Sun Yat-Sen University China and Germany Trade & Invest detail their national situations. Next generation batteries are covered by Robert Bosch (Bosch Group) of Germany, Oxis Energy UK, IBM USA and others. OLEV Technologies will show how to continuously pick up power, Schneider Electric of France how modern charging infrastructure is a system not boxes. There will be two presentations on supercapacitor breakthroughs - here is the future. See the full picture, with best-in-class speakers from across the whole world - Slovenia to Gibraltar, China to Canada, each carefully chosen by IDTechEx because of their leadership. There are two presentations on agricultural EVs and five on electric aircraft including

3D Printing LIVE! USA 2014
Santa Clara, CA, USA
19 - 20 Nov 2014
Boeing and Airbus involvement. Other presenters include BMW (cars etc), Mitsubishi Motors (small commercial vehicles and cars), Daimler AG (commercial and military vehicles and cars) and Toyota (leader in electric forklifts, electric cars and buses but also presenting on its fuel cell vehicle program.) Uniquely, a large number of electric vehicle manufacturers not seen in conventional EV events will present including iRobot Corporation Autonomous Underwater Vehicles AUVs (better known for EVs as robot vacuum cleaners). Mission Motors and two others focus on electric motor cycles. Many manufacturers of industrial, commercial, military, cars and other EVs will be there. Come to this event where you avoid the usual speakers with nothing new to say and meet people new and useful to you without doing a lot of travelling to find them. You can also apply for an award.
