Think to supply EV control module

June 23, 2010 § Leave a comment

Norwegian EV-maker Think, once owned but dumped by Ford, has developed a fourth-generation control module for its vehicles. This rather dull-looking widget pictured here is the bit that integrates the battery and motor, housing the charger, converter, inverter and control systems, and Think promises improved vehicle range and efficiency gains, enhanced technical safety, cheaper manufacturing costs and better flexibility and functionality of the drivetrain.

With this, Think now plans to expand its remit: besides its own-brand vehicles, it is to supply the control module for aftermarket conversions. Its clients for the module already include the Japanese Postal Service and a Brazilian energy supplier, who are converting their vehicles to electric-drive, and the system is claimed to be extremely adaptable for a wide variety of vehicles and battery/motor packages.
