While all the world’s most motoring names look on, a company, PML, has chosen the most prestigious motor as the venue to strip away all the surrounding electric/hybrid vehicles and to a truly awesome car. four revolutionary electric the standard BMW Mini One you can see on Stand 270 is to have a top speed approaching and to out-accelerate a Porsche 911 Carrera 0-60mph. Brake horsepower is a 160bhp per wheel 640bhp in

The car, dubbed the Mini has been designed to run for four of combined urban/extra urban powered only by a battery and of ultra capacitors. For longer at higher speeds, a small internal combustion engine is used to re-charge the battery. In hybrid mode, fuel of up to 80mpg can be achieved.

Explains Boughtwood, PML’s MD: “Until most electric vehicles been little more souped-up milk floats, by range and speed, with performance. For those with a conscience who also value an motoring experience, there is something missing.

“Working in with our customer, Synergy we set out to demonstrate what our electric technology is capable of. We simply a standard BMW Mini One, the engine, the disc brakes, the and the gearbox. These components replaced by four of our electric a lithium polymer battery, a ultra capacitor, a very ICE with generator (so small it fits alongside the spare an energy management system and a in-car display module.”

The benefits of PML in-wheel drive are ;

* It is adaptable to other vehicle

* It eliminates the need for gearing and drive train

* It allows space inside the car

The vehicle has driver-selectable modes of operation:

* Eco for town/city frequent start-stop

* Normal mode for daily and ICE- equivalent operation, and

* mode for super car performance.

notable features include:

* No brakes means returned

All braking is performed by the wheel acting as very efficient generators which return all of the energy back to the battery The beauty of this dual-circuit, safe system is that green conscience can be quite even when accelerating since you are assured of collecting of the expended energy when it is to slow down rapidly.

ABS as – even when accelerating

the wheels are high performance ABS comes as a standard function into each wheel’s Now anti-skid can also be applied to since the motor can smoothly torque delivery to/from the in both cases. Flooring the or accelerator hard merely in controlled maximum torque, the shortest possible stopping or time.

Clever wheels

The eliminates the need for crude gears to share power left and right sides. The are in constant communication with other deciding 1000 each second how much share is optimum for the current conditions. Should one wheel a slippery surface and take anti-skid actions, the other are aware of this instantly and an appropriate compensating strategy to the vehicle as stable as possible.

640 brake horsepower – for life!

wheel develops 160bhp in total. The original Mini One less than 100bhp an engine that weighs double the weight of the four wheels! Apart from bearings there are no wearing in the electric wheels; this the horsepower stays for the life of the and beyond.

Simple, safe, charging

As the battery level the rear mounted ICE/generator to automatically top up the battery. So when you at your destination you can simply the vehicle knowing that you return the battery will be Alternatively you can take advantage of cost mains electricity and in to recharge. So you never need to about battery capacity or how to

During operation, as the battery falls the generator cuts in, an average speed of 60 – 70mph to be with no further battery

Super capacitor – super

Capacitors are used to store energy. The difference between and capacitors is that capacitors can their energy 10 times than a battery. For acceleration or boost at higher speeds the enables nitro-like performance, than doubling the power the battery during these

Very efficient energy means almost nothing is during stop/start city

Energy flow management

A key to super performance is optimum management which continuously where the energy flow be – battery, super capacitor, or wheels. By clever optimisation of the best use can be made of available enabling a fun driving experience protecting the planet.

Small and generator

The small ICE weighs a 15kg (less than of the original Mini One engine) and peak power of 20kW and power of 15kW. A high electrical generator is fitted to the to provide power when the depletion level demands. The key is that the engine is run at a continuous and load – which results in efficiency fuel conversion.

delivering the energy to the battery the mileage equivalent translates to 65 and 80mpg!

In-car display

all this advanced technology the needs to have clear and information presented. The in-car module uses the latest screen technology with display and scroll options. driving modes allow mode to sport boost at a touch.

Displaying available allocated by battery and fuel with boost status, the gives comprehensive information. As as standard speed, diagnostic and functions, the display is GPRS allowing future options of:

* diagnosis of any fault

* Auto of speed limits (optional!)

* management of generator to prevent city operation

* History and system configuration interface

QED: What Next?

developed it’s high in-wheel drive systems, PML in partnership with Synergy to demonstrate, once and for all, environmentally-friendly Electric/Hybrid vehicles can or even surpass the performance of powered by conventional internal engines.

Furthermore, Martin predicts that developments in and ultra capacitor technology in the future will eliminate the for any charging ICE and generator. Although Electric/Hybrid Mini will not be commercially available, the company is in discussing possible one-off and collaborations.

PML (originally Printed Limited) invented and patented the armature motor some 40 ago. The printed armature was the first “pancake” format and led the world in compact high brushed motors. In the last 4 under private ownership, PML has on the pancake format brushless traction “wheel motor” and turbine generators. This marks the launch of several new pushing forward direct motor drive systems.

Innovations was set up to research and develop approaches to use of the planet’s resources and has with PML over the last 8 to help turn the vision of the Mini QED into reality.

The project was undertaken to demonstrate the high performance now possible PML Hi – Pa drive and QED technology. With high efficiency, light and extreme levels of reliability, PML drive systems are suited to environments needing high of safety.

Set to take off in a big way, PML is a company investing heavily in R D to advantage of the benefits of super lightweight wheel motor systems in a global economic looking for major changes in efficiency improvements.

With the odd exception of some impractical and eccentric examples, electric or hybrid electric substantially under perform compared both with performance gasoline cars and with theoretical limits of drive systems. Why are major not putting more emphasis on electric drive systems?

As PML is a in high performance motor and system technology, we felt it to demonstrate what really can be today using the best available! Produced in conjunction our partner Synergy Innovations, the car you see is one of 2 vehicles and is the result of 8 months of effort following PML’s product development programme.

Mini E Electric Cars

The was chosen as the platform because of its appeal and iconic styling. it is not a light vehicle and has limited to integrate the substantial component set for a top performance electric vehicle – if we can convert this vehicle most others should be by comparison!

The target specification was at the outset as follows:

* Emissions

* Autonomy 1000km

* Top speed minimum

* Acceleration 0–100kph in 6

* Braking No mechanical brakes

* Zero carbon

* BHP 250bhp

Some key features are :

* Independent Electric Drive

* Traction and anti-skid built into wheel

* Regenerative braking recovers all energy

* Blistering acceleration and top speed

* Efficient, range-extending engine/generator

* No need to recharge you can “plug in” if you wish)

* Seriously and feature rich in-car

The vehicle development will for some time, especially in the of engine/fuel options and GPRS

and features. Today, the vehicle the very best drive technology available anywhere in the It is truly an outstanding example of innovation at its best!

BMW (UK) Ltd has that we mention they no involvement with this and that such conversions warranty!
