Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MIEV - Electric Concept

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MIEV - Electric Concept

Engines 4 X Electric mounted in the wheels


0-60 < 8.0

Torque - 382 lb-ft

Top Speed 112mph

These are not staggering numbers but it's a start.
The wheels are driven by four outer-rotor in-wheel motors. Requiring no speed reducer, these high-efficiency direct drive motors fit neatly into the 20-inch wheels. Each in-wheel motor produces 50 kW of power and 518 Nm torque. With a motor in each wheel, this brings maximum output up to 200 kW (270 PS). And because this drive system allows precise regulation of power at each individual wheel, it opens the door to creating a vehicle dynamics control system in its ultimate evolutionary form. The in-wheel motors and the lithium-ion battery system, which is located under the floor to reduce the center of gravity, accelerate Lancer Evolution MIEV from 0 km/h to 100 km/h in less than 8 seconds and up to a maximum speed of 180 km/h. This is a level of motive performance that leaves today's EV's standing.
The foremost feature of the in-wheel motor is that it allows drive torque and braking force to be regulated with high precision on an individual wheel basis without requiring transmission, drive shafts, differential gears or other complex and heavy components. Housing the drive system in the wheels also gives greater freedom in designing the layout.

Re: Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MIEV - Electric Concept

I haven't seen this yet - can't wait to see the more refined versions! Looks like the off-the-line 0-60 time would be a little bit better though, since electric motors generate full torque from 0 rpm. Am I crazy there? Regardless, it's rad.
