The Newly Developed D1g1tal Dr1ve to be Unveiled at the World Electric Vehicle Symposium and

Exposition in China

SHENZHEN, China, Nov. 3, 2010 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

    Remy Electric Motors and MotoCzysz have collaborated in the development

of the all new D1g1tal Dr1ve, the world's most advanced electric drive system

for electric cars and light duty trucks and vans. Proprietary MotoCzysz

integration technology and Remy's powerful world class electric drive motor

have been combined in the most advanced, complete electric drive system

available in the industry today. The D1g1tal Dr1ve will be unveiled at the

World Electric Vehicle Symposium in Shenzhen, China in the Remy exhibit

space, 2R021.

    The D1g1tal Dr1ve was conceived from the perspective of an EV

manufacturer. It is a complete system of matched integrated components -

including motor, controller, proprietary cooling system, final drive and

differential - enclosed in a lightweight aluminum shell to deliver

unprecedented efficiency and compactness. The D1g1tal Dr1ve achieves a level

of integration never before available and stands alone as the easiest and

quickest solution for any manufacturer needing an electric drive system.

Manufacturers are tasked only with providing power to the unit and connecting

their final drive to the D1g1tal Dr1ve, significantly reducing the time and

cost of bringing their vehicles to market.

    "The D1g1tal Dr1ve is not just a new product, but the first model in a

new category of products - integrated electric drives. We are proud to have

partnered with Remy and designed the D1g1tal Dr1ve around their industry

leading HVH250 electric motor. Together, we are the first to offer a complete

integrated, next generation electric drive system," said CEO Michael Czysz.

    "Scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2011, manufacturers can

get their first look at the revolutionary D1g1tal Dr1ve in the Remy Electric

Motors booth at the 2010 EVS25 show in Shenzhen, China November 5 - 8," added


    Currently, other electric drive systems comprise individual components

which are wired together, requiring space for the components and wiring.

Integration of the system into a vehicle requires sophisticated engineering

strategies. The D1g1tal Dr1ve matches and optimizes all the necessary

components in a single elegant solution enclosed in a compact shell for

optimal space utilization. System integration of high performance components

is the priority and principal reason for creating the D1g1tal Dr1ve.

    "The D1g1tal Dr1ve provides a simple powertrain solution for EV

manufacturers. It is a complete, compact electric drive solution that is easy

to install. Despite its small size, the Remy HVH 250 motor inside ensures the

D1g1tal Dr1ve makes no sacrifice in power. And, the Remy motor is backed by

the security of over a billion miles of proven reliability," said Remy CEO

John Weber.

    New advantages that come with the D1g1tal Dr1ve include the ease and

speed of adaptation and installation for EV manufacturers. The D1g1tal Dr1ve

allows manufacturers to dramatically reduce the design cycle and development

budget necessary to incorporate a traditional system of individual

components. The work has already been done for customers, so they can receive

a sophisticated, quality "plug and play" system.

    In addition to reduced installation and assembly time, the D1g1tal Dr1ve

improves system durability and makes service and warranty work easier and

less costly. For example, all the electronics are mounted on a single chassis

allowing for installation in less than 30 minutes.

    There is no sacrifice of power with the D1g1tal Dr1ve's compact

packaging. The D1g1tal Dr1ve is the smallest packaging solution available for

an integrated electric drive system while producing up to 1150 N-m of torque

and 75kW of power with the Remy HVH 250 motor.

    Finally, the D1g1tal Dr1ve's integration provides the benefit of

increased efficiency and safety for OEMs and conversion companies producing

electric vehicles.

    There is a full range of D1g1tal Dr1ve models currently in different

stages of testing and design to suit the specific electric power needs of

small commuting vehicles, larger luxury sedans, light- and medium-duty vans

and trucks and extreme super cars. The first model of the D1g1tal Dr1ve, the

D1, is targeted for compact electric vehicles and light duty vans and trucks.
