NEW PROJECTS

1. Solar van – New project, starting 1.3.2017 is a part of our broader project “Sustainable energy cycle”.

Solar roof van will have double battery, one permanently installed and other one removable as part of “Sustainable energy cycle”. When equipped with both batteries, the range should reach 1000 km at moderate driving. Van will be powered by Mahle-Letrika 400V motor/controller.

2. Powerpiki sports car – Institute Metron has finished a small sports car Powerpiki end of November 2016. It can achieve 100 km/h in 6 seconds and has a range of 150-200 km! The car is based on Smart Roadster chassie and body, but is not just a conversion as Superpiki used to be. Motor is PM synchron one running at 128V and up to 700 A, batteries are lightweight lithium polymer. Charger is 3 phase 11 kW or 3 phase 17 kW what results in less then 2 h charging time.

Powerpiki is supposed to be introduced at EVS 30 in Stuttgart in October 2017 and will be available for customers in Germany, Austria , Slovenia and Croatia since then.

3. Sustainable energy cycle – Our new vision of connection between renewable power plant, storage battery and electric vehicle, operational since 1.1.2016

4. Metron 7 – making a comfortable electric car with high range and good performances. Car is powered by Mahle-Letrika IPM motor and controller, nominal voltage is 350V, top speed 183 km/h, acceleration less then 10 s from 0 to 100 km/h. Rabge varies from 400 km (highway 130 km/h) up to 824 km (done in real trafic at 72 km/h in June 2015). Many new technologies and innovations have been used for the first time!

Above:  04.11.2013, we started working on project METRON 7

Metron 7 has been operational since May 2014, till now (october 2016) it has driven 76000 electric km. In 2015 Metron 7 has set World range record of 826 km on single charge at average speed 72 km/h.

5. Battery range extender for Citroen C Zero/ Peugeot Ion/ Michubishi Miev. Additional battery containing 10 kWh of energy will expand the range for 60 to 90 km by weighting just 70 kg. Installation is done in 5 to 10 minutes without any visible changes on your car! Available from november for 6300 € + VAT

  • The battery is designed in a way that it fits into luggage compartment. Weight of both boxes is 70 kg, first installation should be done in a workshop, later it is possible to take it out or put it in in 5-10 minutes. Auxilliary battery is made of 14 pcs LiPo cells 200 Ah and has a nominal voltage of 52 Volts. This voltage is raised by DCDCconverter to the voltage of C zero and in a way it looks like the car is charging during driving by constant power of 4 kW. It has its own charger 1,8 kW, so it can be charged on 10 A household socket in 5 hours. It can not be charged by ChaDeMo and it can not store regenerative energy from original battery!
  • 15.10.2013 Tests proved successful, so we will start accepting orders. First sales will be limited to Slovenija, Karnten (Austria) and Istra (Croatia) due to workshops that are trained to make initial installation and later servicing if required.

Since 2014 we have built many Electric range extenders, also for VW E Golf.

6. 10 kWh storage battery – battery package consists of 15 Sinopoly 200 Ah cells, BMS system, main contactor, current shunt, fuse and connectors (power supply, charger control, solar control, BMS connection, BMS on/off switch). By this the battery is protected from over and under voltage, over current and overheating. On each side there is INOX handle for carrying. Project running since 2014
