A test car called Power BEV has just been demonstrated by BMW at the event #NEXTGen has demonstrated the brand's future technology from Germany. Thereby, this car is integrated with three fifth-generation electric motors of the company that can bring a maximum capacity of 720 horsepower with the ability to accelerate from 0-100 km / h in a period of less than 3 seconds.
With the goal of long-term development, BMW wants to create models that always meet the outstanding acceleration in straight lines and still bring excitement to the driver. Therefore, engine and chassis engineers worked together to provide a new electric vehicle structure with two separate engines located in a separate rear axle. This will help the electric motor achieve maximum performance, combined with the front steering system using its own engine.
With such engine design, the car can move more flexibly than the traditional limited-slip differential system. The force that affects each wheel makes it possible to move in many different situations.
The engine generation is used by BMW on test cars of the 5th generation. The German brand uses the current 5 Series model for Power BEV project. They want to ensure that the new drive system will not affect the space used inside the vehicle. This will help the manufacturer evaluate and select appropriate options for future vehicle models.
BMW has unveiled a new generation electric motor that will be used in the latest iX3 electric car model. However, this multipurpose vehicle will only use one electric motor instead of three engines as tested. Perhaps this system will be for sports cars, to compete with models like the Tesla Roadster. The model has the power to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 1.9 seconds.
