SIM-LEI Electric Vehicle to run 300km

SIM-Drive, a venture company established by Keio University for the development of electric vehicle technology in 2009, exhibited its SIM-LEI vehicle at the 2011 Electric Vehicle Industrial Exhibition.

The basic concept of the design of this vehicle is to achieve a cruising range of over 300km while maintaining a constant 100km/h speed. By operating the vehicle with a high efficiency, 65kW, 700 newton meter motor, battery load is suppressed. A drag coefficient of 0.19 has been achieved by minimizing air resistance. The car is fitted with Bridgestone Ecopia tires that have lower rolling resistance than regular tires.
