AC Propulsion, Inc. announced that Chinese GAC Group (Guangzhou Automobile Group Co., Ltd) is showing the Trumpchi GS5-BEV Electric SUV Concept at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.
The concept is based on the ICE Trumpchi GS5 SUV which was introduced in March of 2012.
The GS5-BEV is a luxury SUV with exhilarating performance and charging convenience.
Jointly developed by GAC Engineering and AC Propulsion, it is powered by AC Propulsion’s Gen 3 Integrated Drive & Recharge system which features a high efficiency induction motor and highly integrated Power Electronics Unit.
The high speed motor provides instantaneously available 225 Nm of torque and up to 150 kW (200 hp) of power. The Power Electronics Unit integrates the motor drive electronics and onboard charger functions to minimize system costs.
The 18 kW high power charger allows recharge times as fast as 2 hours and features bi-directional power capability – thus Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G), Vehicle-to-House (V2H) and Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) power flow are all possible. The 35 kWh Li-Ion battery pack is mounted low for excellent vehicle stability and is managed by ACP’s “LOM” monitor & control system. The high efficiency of the system and excellent energy management enable the vehicle to achieve a driving range of 100 miles with a single charge of the battery.[wzslider height=”400″ info=”true” lightbox=”true”]
