Phoenix Electrified

Motivation is supplied by a liquid-cooled, 100 kW PowerPhase 100 electric traction motor and controller by noted component developer UQM Technologies. Power comes from 900 pounds of Altair NanoSafe lithium titanate batteries. Vehicle integration and testing are by Boshart Engineering.

The powertrain is no slouch, producing over 400 ft-lbs of torque and accelerating this electrified SUT from 0-60 mph in under 10 seconds. It features an electronically governed top speed of 95 mph with a claimed driving range of 100 miles. An integrated on-board charger allows charging in about six hours from a 220-volt outlet. Charging in 10 minutes is said to be possible with a high-power commercial rapid charger, although these are quite costly and there is no network of readily-available rapid chargers around outside of an unrelated test program in Hawaii (see the feature "Quick Charge!" elsewhere on this site). Even with its hefty battery pack, the Phoenix SUT still offers a 1,000 pound payload capability.
