Enova Systems has received a Production Contract to provide a minimum of 1,000 Power Control Units (PCU's) to Think Global in 2008, for use in their electric vehicle passenger car, the Think City.
Future production ambitions for the Think City are expected at a minimum of 10,000 units in 2009. Enova's PCU is a critical component of the vehicle's power system, converting and regulating high voltage power to lower voltages where and as required.
Enova's module transfers power throughout the drive system and assists in energy recovery during regenerative braking, extending the overall range of the vehicle. The source of propulsion power is therefore transparent to the driver, allowing him to concentrate on normal vehicle operation.
The new investor group behind the Think City has access to advanced battery technologies which will be further developed and utilised to improve the vehicle, with particular emphasis on performance and driving range. The driving range is expected to be 180km, a top speed of 100 kph and a 0-50 kph acceleration of seven (7) seconds.
