Metron 7 is the latest concept of high efficiency and high range electric car made in cooperation with Mahle-Letrika in 2014. Mahle-Letrika provided highly efficient propulsion (motor and controller) with 91%-96% efficiency and together with high density batteries from KOKAM (186 Wh/kg), Metron Institute was able to make a 700+ km range family vehicle, with heating and air conditioning. Metron 7 also uses additional battery packs that can serve as storage batteries at our “Sustainable energy cycle”. One of the innovative solutions is propulsion cooling with adaptive air intakes.
