UQM Technologies begins volume production of PowerPhase Pro electric propulsion systems

27 October 2011

UQM Technologies, Inc. has begun volume production of its PowerPhase Pro electric motor and controller packages. The company’s production line has a capacity of 40,000 units on two shifts.

The brushless, permanent-magnet electric motor delivers greater range and improved braking. The entire system is lightweight and completely sealed. The controller offers precise regulation of torque based on user inputs from a Controller Area Network.

UQM currently offers two versions of the UQM PowerPhase Pro for passenger vehicles ranging from a sub-compact car up to medium-duty passenger van. The PowerPhase Pro 100 delivers 300 N·m peak torque with a 100 kW peak, 60 kW continuous motor. The PowerPhase Pro 135 delivers 340 N·m peak torque with a 135 kW peak, 60 kW continuous motor.

The launch of volume production of our electric motors and controllers marks a new milestone in the history of UQM Technologies and is a significant step in the broad commercialization of our electric propulsion systems. Moving into the high-volume production phase for our state-of-the-art high efficiency electric propulsion systems is a boost to our company in many ways, including generating a substantial increase in our revenue and by validating that our company can deliver volume product with the performance and durability that automakers expect.

—Eric Ridenour, UQM Technologies’ President and CEO

Interesting way to get access to complete electric propulsion system without having to spend heavily into associated R & D. and production facilities.

Any idea on how much?

Five figures still probably, but hopefully closer to $10K now than $20K+.
