IN A CLASS OF ITS OWN, THE INGEAR INTEGRATES GROUNDBREAKING, PATENTED TECHNOLOGY TO PROVIDE UNPARALLELED TORQUE AND SEAMLESS GEAR SHIFTING
inMotive’s inGear transmission can improve electric vehicle’s energy efficiency. An improvement in efficiency translates directly to into increased range and performance, more specifically:
20% Increase in Range – A quick, clutch-less shifting with over than 98% transmission efficiency means the inGear consumes very little energy, adding up to 20% to vehicle range over combined urban and highway cycles.
20% Increase in Acceleration – A lower gear ratio for starting multiplies torque which dramatically improves acceleration off-the-line. Thus, motor design constraints around high speed and reduced inrush current can be avoided for better mid-speed performance and efficiency.
20% Increase in Top Speed – Motors offer greater power and efficiency in the mid-range rpm, which can only be applied to highway use with an efficient transmission.
50% Reduction in Heat – When accelerating off-the-line, the motor moves into a more efficient RPM range more quickly, reducing inrush current and energy losses (and thus hear losses) in the form of motor heat.
There is a virtuous cycle to these advantages that leads to less costs, and potentially smaller and cheaper components.
