ECOmove's 500 Mile Range QBEAK To Hit The Road In 2012
Danish electric carmaker ECOmove has developed a car that can go 500 mile range, which is based on the company's QBEAK electric city car, as fellow writer David Herron wrote in his previous article; 500 Mile electric car being developed in Denmark.
Intelligent Presentation Of The QBEAK. Unlike other electric cars that try to answer every solution, ECOmove’s idea of presenting the QBEAK is sound and logical. This little electric car is intelligently pitched as an urban dweller car, period.
Technically Speaking. Weighing in at 881.4 lbs, 400 kg, its battery pack configuration can be stretched from one to 6, each holding 4.7 kilowatt-hours of electricity, giving all six slightly of 28.2 kWh. This explains how it can reach 180 miles and in order to cover the rest of the 320 miles, a “range extender” is used. By using an intelligent bio-methanol fuel cell system, it effectively increases the range to achieve the mystical 500 mile barrier.
By sporting two in-wheel motors rated at 70kw, the top speed is enough to hit the highway without getting tickets, 74.6 MPH, or 120 km. But the gist remains that its strongest part is its customization. It can be adapted to suit almost anyone’s needs from short city hops to highway longer stretches. Much as its battery pack, it can include up to 6 seats that can be removed in order to make use of its cargo space.
