New redesigned chassis and suspension made from tubular steel provides greater strength and enhanced rigidity for the electric motor's higher torque values.
This is the frame that's been made for the last 28 years. It's stronger with tubular steel, straight, and has a five year guarantee.
The suspension system is coilover shock absorbers with 4- wheel disc brakes and a regenerative braking system applied when driver lifts foot off the accelerator and transforms kinetic energy of the moving vehicle into electric energy for battery storage.
The UQM Powerphase 135 has a peak power of 180HP (135kW) and a continuous power of 134HP (100 kW), peak torque 236 ftlb (320Nm). Comes standard with a liquid cooling system, and has been proven in the field with over 2 million miles of operation.
The battery pack has a Lithium-Ion, and advanced thermal computer management system with active liquid cooling that maintains ideal cell temperatures throughout the pack and responds quickly to increases in power demand and ambient temperatures.
Has a 12 year battery life warranty.
Electric cars are smooth and quite riding. One charge overnight has a 120 - mile range. Extra batteries increase range.
