Protean Electric Presents The Future Of Production In-Wheel Electric Drive
DETROIT, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Protean Electric, the global leader of advanced in-wheel electric drive, will present today at the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo in Novi, Mich. Ken Stewart, vice president of Business Development, will speak at the Open Tech Forum at 10:30 a.m. to explain why now is the right time to put in-wheel motors on a production vehicle development timeline.
Protean Electric will feature its production motor and be available to discuss the significant role in-wheel electric drive will play in the global automotive industry over the next several years on Sep. 17-19 in booth #E905.
Protean's in-wheel electric drive system is an award-winning technology that is an integral part of a hybrid powertrain system when paired with a traditional internal combustion engine. It is also powerful enough to be the only source of traction drive in electric vehicles.The motors reside in the space behind the wheel, producing torque and power exactly where and when drivers need it. Protean's new production motor provides a 25 percent increase in peak torque compared with the previous generation's design and can deliver 1,000 Nm (735 lb.-ft.) and 75 kW (100 hp). "Protean's in-wheel motor technology is ready to address the automotive fuel economy, drivetrain performance and integration challenges today and for the future," said Stewart. Protean has been awarded 32 patents for its unique technology and design, with 88 additional international patent applications pending. Protean has won the prestigious 2012 Technology Pioneers Award from the World Economic Forum and received recognition from Car and Driver magazine as one of the ten most promising technologies for 2013.
