Rimac Auto’s new C-SEX electric vehicle project, which integrates two high performance electric motors into a lightweight, fully enclosed frame, will pave the way for future advancements in electric vehicles (EV) technology. The goal of the project is to build a car that can run at speeds of up to sixty miles per hour, can do multiple tasks at once, can be totally self-sufficient and can travel long distances on battery power. By putting all of these technologies together in a lightweight framework, Rimac is taking advantage of new advances in battery technology to realize this vision.

For years, many EV enthusiasts have been dreaming of a vehicle with all of the features and amenities of a luxury sports car without the huge price tag. Early prototypes have shown signs of being able to achieve this goal, but no one has been able to create a fully functional electric motor vehicle with all of the features. Rimac Auto’s new project aims to change this. They have developed a series of prototypes for the new C-SEX electric vehicle by combining a series of technologies. The first step is a vehicle called the Rimac C-SEX Supercharged Street Car, which utilizes a series of single charge battery packs located behind the driver’s seat.

An Overview

Each battery pack contains a series of high performance lithium polymer batteries, developed by leading lithium battery manufacturers. In addition to this system, the company will also use a flywheel, transmission and clutch system all developed for high-performance all-electric cars. This combination is the first of its kind, but it does represent the future of EV technology. It will allow electric vehicle manufacturers to produce a competitive vehicle that can compete with the highly priced Nissan LEAF. By leveraging new technologies, such as battery packs and drivetrain systems, auto makers are well on their way to building the best, most efficient and energy-efficient autonomous vehicles of the future.

A prototype of the new all-electric BMW i4 is currently undergoing testing in Germany. BMW is hoping to introduce an all-electric BMW i4 to the market in about five years time. This vehicle would replace the current BMW i3, which uses a standard gasoline engine. The new vehicle will offer significant range for drivers looking for a suitable car option. Its standard gasoline engine is powerful enough to power a number of BMW i8 models.

Future BMW Electric Cars Fact

A concept BMW i8 is expected to offer up to sixty miles of pure electric motor driving, along with great dynamics and styling. The automobile would utilize lithium ion battery packs, manufactured by the leading auto battery producer, Panasonic. One interesting aspect of the concept BMW i8 sports car is its use of its battery pack in two separate ways. The vehicle would actually start its braking process when the motor is not strong enough to power the electric motors, which would allow it to use a small battery pack for the remaining period of acceleration.

A number of automobile experts believe that the use of a solid-state battery pack in future BMW electric cars could be a first for the company. A solid-state battery pack has the potential to be much more efficient and powerful than the usual NiCad batteries used in most cars today. The future BMW i8 may also be equipped with a filter emotion system. This system has already been seen on several BMWs, but it is yet to be confirmed whether this new feature will be included in future vehicles or not. A fisker emotion system allows a BMW car to sense the speed of the driver, depending on the behavior of the driver.

If the rumors are true, it is expected that the new BMW i8 would use a two-seat sports car design. This would mark a significant advancement over previous BMW models, such as the 3rd series and the Passat. One major change that could possibly be seen is the removal of the air intake system, which is located in the roof section. Instead, a smaller air intake module could be placed behind the carbon fiber hood. The result would be an engine which utilizes less fuel, while producing a sportier demeanor.

Bottom Line

Currently, the BMW i4 makes use of a standard single charge battery pack. It is rumored that the manufacturer may make use of a new stacked battery pack in the future. These new packs could hold enough energy to power the motor for up to about 300 kilometers. With this battery pack replacement, it is expected that the BMW i4 will be able to achieve the same performance as the new Passat. Expect to see a compact sporty vehicle with a two-seat option in the very near future.
