MULTI-MOBY is an ambitious proposal aiming at quickly finalizing the results of a cluster of GV and FoF EU projects addressing the development of technology for safe, efficient and affordable urban electric vehicles.
A fleet of multi-passenger and multi-purpose commercial vans will be manufactured assuring:
• Best-in-class safety for occupants and Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) protection as required per the M1/N1categories,
• Autonomous capabilities by adopting the most on-the-road-experimented sensing and computational platforms, with the addition of low-cost scanning and night vision functionalities,
• High efficiency 48V and 100V powertrains adopting the most advanced power semiconductor technologies amongst Si, SiC and GaN,
• Robust battery packs based on hybrid cells with specific energy close to 200Wh/kg at pack level,
• On-board charger integrating a DCxxV-DC12V converter optimized for the two voltages of interest,
• A standardized low cost charging system able to operate DC charging at 48V and 100V,
• Advanced Electric Electronic (EE) architecture with implemented secured procedures for remote updates and upgrades of the firmware and predictive maintenance, by applying advanced artificial intelligence (AI) methodologies,
• Application of low-cost, flexible, agile and lean manufacturing through a low-investment micro-factory concept,
• Competitive price positioning with respect to existing and forthcoming fully electrical urban passenger and commercial vehicles.
