Quimera and Altran, its global technological partner of Quimera, will present the “All Electric GT” AEG prototype at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Featuring three UQM motors developing a combined 700 bhp (522 kW), the AEGT has a top speed currently limited to 300 km/h (186 mph).
Quimera is aiming to change the way that electrical cars are perceived by the car industry and raise public awareness regarding EV’s capacities, performance and range. Altran and Quimera worked with Technopark Motorland and Sunrace Engineering Development on the AEGT project.
The monocoque chassis is made entirely of carbon fiber to make it lighter and more rigid. Supplied by a series of lithium-polymer EIG batteries, the AEGT can run for about 30 minutes. Shakedown was 26 July at the Motorland F1 race track.
Altran is the main technology advisor and participates in the development. Quimera has several electric racing projects, and Altran is responsible for the design and engineering of the electrical powertrain, including battery pack, battery management system, electric motors, gearbox and the complete powertrain integration as well as the required chassis modifications.
Quimera leads a consortium of international companies to develop and deploy sustainable projects in metropolitan and urban areas in the renewable energy and sustainability fields. Quimera is active in the following sectors: energy efficiency, energy storage, transportation, solar, wind, smart grid, biofuels & biomaterials, recycling & waste, water & wastewater.
