Applus+ IDIADA, the most powerful electric prototype

28/02/2013
Applus+ IDIADA successfully completes the world's most powerful electric sports prototype. The project undertaken by the Spanish company on behalf of the European Commission shows that electric vehicles can perform to a sports level.

BARCELONA, February 28, 2013 - Applus+ IDIADA, a company specialized in engineering for the international automotive industry, has successfully completed the project, an innovative electric prototype with high performance, comparable to or even better than conventionally-powered sports cars.

The prototype has been presented today at the Circuit de Catalunya during the F1 Test Days, in an act that has been attended by, among other authorities, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the European Commission, Sebastian Salvado, President of RACC, and Carles Grasas, CEO of Applus+ IDIADA.

Applus+ IDIADA, a division of Applus+ specialized in the provision of design, engineering, testing and homologation services, was awarded the project by the European Commission in late 2012 in a tender in which companies across Europe took part. In just four months, the company has managed to meet and exceed the performance features required by the EC, among others:

Powertrain:
  • Provide maximum motor power and torque to the vehicle (1000 HP, 1000 Nm)
  • Achieve fast-charging (15-20 minutes)

Vehicle dynamics:

  • Regenerative braking system
  • Aerodynamics
  • Independent power control for all 4 motors, iTORQ original by Applus+ IDIADA

In the words of Fernando Basabe, CEO of Applus+, "this project is recognition of the technological capacity of Applus + IDIADA in the field of engineering for the automotive industry." Carles Grasas, CEO of Applus+ IDIADA, stresses the technical challenge that the award of the project by the EC implies: "successful completion of the project in four months is the best demonstration of the capabilities of the company in engineering and project management.

The project, which is co-funded by the European Commission, will allow the Applus+ prototype to become a flagship for the promotion of electric vehicles in European society. Users, the car industry, energy sector and government have a reference in this demonstrator of the great potential of electric vehicles.
