Swindon Powertrain will launch an 80 kW powertrain designed for low-volume sports cars. The high-power-density system will weigh 70 kg and measure 600 mm long, 440 mm wide, and 280 mm high. Funded by Niche Vehicle Network in partnership with electric motor manufacturer iNetic and automotive specialist Code, the new powertrain is scheduled to begin production by June 2020.
Swindon Powertrain’s Managing Director Raphael Caille said, “To date, niche manufacturers have not had access to compact, high-power EV powertrains they could source in low to mid volume, leading to a vacuum of supply. Our ready-to-install ‘crate’ powertrain will accelerate EV adoption in sectors poorly served by the larger Tier 1 manufacturers and integrators.”
