MotoCzysz Releases "The World's First Fully Integrated Electric Drive System"

The MotoCzysz D1g1gital Dr1ve D1 fully integrated electric drive system.
Nov 10, 2010, Portland, OR - MotoCzysz unveiled the world's first fully integrated electric drive system - the D1g1gital Dr1ve D1 - at the EVS25 show in Shenzhen China on November 5th 2010. Targeted to power the next generation electric vehicles and series hybrids, the D1g1tal Dr1ve is slated for delivery in May of 2011, for under $8999.

The D1g1tal Dr1ve D1 is a compact, advanced drive system that incorporates motor, inverter, oil pump, gear reduction and differential, all housed in a light-weight aluminum case. The complete integration of components makes the D1g1tal Dr1ve a true "plug and play" alternative, dramatically reducing the typical design time and costs associated with electric vehicles.

The integrated drive technology housed in the D1g1tal Dr1ve powered the MotoCzysz E1pc motorcycle to two race wins and two track records in 2010. The E1pc dominated the field at the Isle of Mann TT, winning by over two minutes ahead of the closest competitor; this same technology also powered the MotoCzysz E1pc to over 163mph at Bonneville.

By combining innovative, race-proven technology with the power and reliability of the Remy Motors HVH250, the D1g1tal Dr1ve becomes the most advanced and dependable integrated drive system available today.

The D1 makes a continuous 60kW and 75kW peak power and over 1000Nm drive torque in a package weighing less than 150lbs, making it an ideal solution for small commuter vehicles and light duty trucks or utility vehicles. The D1 is designed to accommodate either front or rear wheel drive vehicles.

A complete line of even more powerful and innovative D1g1tal Dr1ves are being designed and tested; further announcements to follow.
