UQM Technologies contracted to supply electric propulsion systems

ZoomUQM Technologies contracted to supply electric propulsion systems
Australian company, EV Engineering is using UQM Technologies' electric propulsion system to power its proof-of-concept fleet of Australian-built EV Commodore electric vehicles.
A fleet of locally manufactured Holden Commodore passenger cars will be converted to proof-of-concept electric vehicles by June 2012. If successful, technologies used in the project could be considered for possible future mass production.
"We believe that Australia's automotive future lies with electric cars," said Ian McCleave, EV Engineering Chief Executive Officer. "We're working with leaders in the industry to build an electric model of Australia's most popular manufactured car for 15 successive years."
The EV Commodore electric vehicle project is led by EV Engineering, a collaborative venture between leading Australian automotive suppliers including: Air International, Bosch, Continental and Futuris; along with leading industrial company GE, and electric car infrastructure provider, Better Place.
"Programs such as this help demonstrate the viability of electric vehicles and educate the public on the advantages of vehicles equipped with our PowerPhase electric propulsion systems," said Eric Ridenour, UQM Technologies President and Chief Executive Officer.
"Our PowerPhase 145 that will power the EV Commodore proof-of-concept vehicles is a powerful, compact and highly-efficient turn-key electric propulsion system."
UQM PowerPhase electric propulsion systems have been selected to power CODA Automotive's vehicles, Proterra's electric composite transit buses, as well as Electric Vehicles International's all-electric medium-duty truck test fleet which is currently being built for UPS. Recently, UQM PowerPhase products deployed in the marine industry helped the Goldfish eFUSION boat win the Powerboat of the Year Innovation Award at the Dusseldorf Boat Show.
UQM Technologies has a manufacturing facility in Longmont, Colorado, which has capacity to produce up to 40,000 units annually of its PowerPhase electric propulsion systems.
IDTechEx have published 18 in-depth reports on the EV industry offering ten year forecasts, analysis and case studies. See External Link for more information.
