Horizon2020

CREEV Range Extender Project

Electric vehicles are for certain the future of the automotive industry and a sound solution for positively reducing ever rising CO2 emissions. However, the world is yet to see the benefits of large-scale electric vehicle adoption as fears over range anxiety remain a key barrier for purchase.

Project Objective

With greater adoption of electric vehicles, Europe could significantly reduce the contribution of CO2 emissions from road transport. Unfortunately, range anxiety (the fear that an electric vehicle will fail to reach its destination) remains a major barrier for large-scale adoption despite incentives and a greater choice of vehicles.

Technology

AIE’s patented rotary exhaust expander unit CREEV (Compound Rotary Engine for Electric Vehicles) is delivering exciting solutions for range extender and power generator applications. Now with CREEV technology, all the benefits of a high power, low weight rotary engine can be experienced
