Light electric vehicles (LEVs) maker Daymak unveiled the first prototype of its Spiritus LEV, marking a major milestone in the vehicle’s development. With more than 25,000 pre-orders placed on the Daymak Spiritus, Daymak’s Avvenire lineup of LEVs has accumulated over $1 billion USD in pre-order commitments.
With an initial base model price of $19,995, the Daymak Spiritus aims to redefine the fun, modern-day commuter as an accessible entry point to green vehicles and cutting-edge technology. The Spiritus has garnered overwhelming media and consumer interest as both the world’s fastest three-wheeled vehicle (Ultimate version boasts a 0-60 mph time of 1.8 seconds) and the first EV to mine and manage cryptocurrency transactions.
The Spiritus will be offered in two very distinctive models:
– Spiritus Deluxe: With a top speed of 85 mph and up to 180 miles of range, standard with leading comfort and safety features including Nebula crypto mining and wallet, the Spiritus Deluxe is the all-electric option for the modern urban commuter.
– Spiritus Ultimate: Delivering mind-bending acceleration of 0-60 mph in 1.8 seconds with a top speed of 130 mph, the Spiritus Ultimate boasts Ondata wireless charging technology, on top of the same state-of-the-art technology as the Deluxe model – plus a 300-mile range and autonomous driving features. The Ultimate is the most capable of sports cars disguised as a three-wheeler – a fully loaded electric dream.
“We wanted to thank everyone who supported us in achieving this goal, with special thanks to our strategic partners Extreme Vehicle Battery Tech (CSE: ACDC) and IoniX Pro Battery Technologies, who continue to be critical in the Avvenire product line development. The Spiritus car will be equipped with a customized AI-Powered IoniX Pro Lithium Ion Battery System,” said Aldo Baiocchi, president of Daymak.
“A poster from 2005 of our Spiritus concept three-wheeler still hangs in my office, so finally seeing our vision come to life 16 years later and sharing that dream with more than 25,000 people who ordered the vehicle is a very special moment for us. This prototype is a major milestone in our commitment to the Avvenire program, and having achieved this goal, the rest of the journey is finally coming together.”
This one-of-a-kind prototype marks a turning point for Spiritus and Avvenire production updates. On top of eye-watering acceleration, it utilizes hub motors that, coupled with proprietary torque-distribution software, will allow the Spiritus to have handling, stability, and performance that are unprecedented for the three-wheel vehicle category. The next stage for this prototype will be the incorporation of proprietary Daymak Ondata wireless charging and the Daymak Drive X controller; a blockchain-enabled, backwards-compatible software and hardware package that scales with each EV class in the Avvenire lineup.
“With a fraction of the moving parts, and with the recent leaps in AI, IoT, blockchain, and green tech, we believe that the beauty of electric vehicles, specifically three-wheelers, is that they can outperform any vehicle out there in utility and convenience at a fraction of the cost,” continued Baiocchi. “The Spiritus will do just that. We pledge that our pre-order customers will find themselves behind the wheel of the world’s most advanced and most exhilarating three-wheeled vehicle on the planet when they take delivery as promised in 2023.”
Spiritus, the fifth model in the Avvenire Series, will launch in 2023. The Avvenire Series is a comprehensive lineup of personal LEVs ranging from e-bikes to flying electric vehicles. The company will continue to offer special pre-order pricing and perk packages until Saturday, Oct. 30, 2021, after which prices of each Avvenire model will increase and perks will be discontinued.
