Fiction | ElecTrike. World Electric Car
Something resembling both poluigrushechny truck and a children’s tricycle! What is it? The answer is simple: ElecTrike. And now the details: the firm ElecTrike Japan Co Ltd 16 April 2013 began taking orders for this fun (and cheap) Tricycle (tricycle), which feeds on electrical energy. Actual deliveries will begin in May of this year. ElecTrike interesting not only in itself but also as a model of modern production. Parts has made not only in different countries but also in different parts of the world.
From around the world assembled components for ElecTrike. And this new elektrotritsikl gives us a good excuse to make a general idea of how to organize the production of modern devices.
Is expensive and goes far
ElecTrike mass of 450 kg and 150 kg load capacity. Thus, the third electric able to raise its weight. Its dimensions (in meters): 2.5 (L) x 1.3 (W) x 1.67 (H). Minimum turning radius: 2.9 meters. Elektrotritsikl has a maximum speed of 50 kilometers per hour.
Electric car designed for one passenger, who is also a driver. No charge ElecTrike will travel a total of 40 kilometers. And it will have to charge 3 hours from a 200-volt power supply or 6 hours on a 100-volt power. So that travel long distances have to forget.
Maybe with time on the streets of towns and cities will not only outlandish yaytsemobili , but also three-wheeled electric motorcycles. But first, the industry will have to overcome a major obstacle: too small battery capacity.
Today, compact electric vehicle is in the same position as the mobile phones in the middle of the last century, when it was already , but did not play little or no role in the life of human society.
But almost all significant inventions have gone through this stage. More recently, computers only interested in folk art , and today many are the real computer in your pocket.
The company’s plans for the near future is very modest. In the city of Kawasaki, where its head office is located, ElecTrike plans to sell before the end of the current fiscal year, a total of ten of its electric tricycles. The buyer will have to pay for this miracle mototsiklostroeniya 2,000,000 yen, ie 20000 352 U.S. dollars.
Completing ElecTrike doing in different parts of the world
In the 2014 fiscal year ElecTrike hopes to provide the Japanese market hundreds of its vehicles of the future. In most companies realize that more widespread interest in such assets will move only in 2015 or even later. Then plan to cut the price in half and produce 100 ElecTrike month.
ElecTrike chassis manufactured in India at the facilities of the enterprise ElecTrike. This Indian company annually produces 45,000 three-wheelers. Where, where, and only in India, it is difficult to find public transport more popular rickshaw. The plans of the two companies to do joint production of two-wheelers under the name of «Ninja».
But back to the tricycle ElecTrike. Japanese firm buys a three-wheeled vehicles for rickshaws in India and reworks them into modern electric cars are in Japan. When demand increases, the firm will be thinking hard to organize production in Laos or Cambodia.
ElecTrike driven by a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, manufactured by a Hong Kong company Sinopoly Battery Ltd. The battery capacity of 5 kWh. BMS this battery is made by the Danish Lithium Balance.
Over time, as production volumes increase, ElecTrike going to order the batteries from South Korean companies SK Innovation Co Ltd and Automotive Energy Supply Corp (AESC). AESC batteries have a capacity of 4 kilowatt hours, which is one-sixth of the total storage capacity of the famous elektrobilya Nissan Leaf.
Despite the fact that their capacity to somewhat less performance are hardly inferior batteries Sinopoly Battery. This is achieved due to the fact that the change in the operation performance of these batteries is less than the currently used, although the latter has a capacity of 5 kwh.
Motor and inverter ElecTrike manufactured by the South Korean VCTech Co Ltd. Elektrotritsikl each equipped with two motors and two inverters, so the right and left wheel has an independent drive. Double gear ElecTrike created Mitsubishi Agricultural Machinery Co Ltd.
In Japan ElecTrike registered as a motorcycle with a sidecar and its management requires regular driver’s license.
