Raser Finalizes Agreement With a Major Vehicle OEM to Develop a 100 MPG Plug-In-Hybrid


raser-logo(Source: Raser) - Raser Technologies announced that it has signed an agreement with a global automotive manufacturer in its effort to produce a plug-in-hybrid electric demonstration vehicle incorporating Symetron electric motor and electronic drive technology.

Raser also announced previously that it teamed with FEV Engine Technology, one of the world’s leading developers of advanced powertrain and vehicle technologies, as the integrator for this plug-in-hybrid vehicle project. The vehicle is targeted to achieve more than 100 mpg for the typical American driver with improved acceleration while dramatically reducing harmful exhaust emissions.

FEV has previously supported this undisclosed OEM as an engine, powertrain and vehicle developer, and system integrator. FEV works with OEMs worldwide to develop new powertrain and vehicle integration designs into prototypes that can be integrated into OEM production vehicles.

Gary Rogers, President and CEO of FEV Engine Technology remarked concerning this agreement, "We have considerable experience in working with this OEM and we are excited about the chance to exhibit our advanced hybrid powertrain design and development capabilities on this program."

Jim Spellman, Raser Technology’s Vice President of Transportation stated, “By combining the strengths of the three companies in this project, Raser plans to demonstrate the plug-in-hybrid benefits for improved fuel economy and reduced emissions. We believe that this vehicle can be designed to recharge from a regular 110V or 220V outlet and driven in excess of 400 miles using stored grid power and its onboard generation capability.”

Patrick J. Schwartz, President of Raser Technology stated, “We are very pleased with the alliance that is now complete. We look forward to completing this project and to the exciting opportunities it should bring for both Raser and the industry as plug-in-hybrid vehicles enter the market over the next few years.”
