AC Propulsion Provides Power for 500 New Electric Vehicles

I recently was working on the new book Build Your Own Plug In Hybrid Electric Vehicle and noticed that AC Propulsion came out with a new drive system. Check this amazing AC drive system.

AC Propulsion, a global leader in electric vehicle technology and services, today announced that it partnered with BMW Group to supply the electric propulsion and battery technology for the MINI E electric vehicle, which was introduced today at the LA Auto Show. AC Propulsion has delivered over 500 drive systems to the BMW Group factory in Munich for MINI E production.

“Working with BMW Group on the MINI E project has been a great experience,” said AC Propulsion CEO Tom Gage, “The schedule was tight and required a lot of discipline and coordination. We’ve had cars with our drive systems on the road since 1992, and some have well over 100,000 miles on them, so we’ve seen our systems handle the rigors of daily use. This is a big step for electric vehicles.”

  1. Electric cars are not dead; even though they have been killed numerous times. In fact now is the time for the resurgence; the revenge of the electric car. This time they are here to stay!
