Climate change remains one of the main societal challenges humanity is facing in the 21st century, with road transport as one of the main contributors to carbon emissions. Despite the potential of electric vehicles to reduce these emissions, consumer adoption is hindered by various barriers. One of these obstacles is the slow charging times of electric vehicles, with even fast charging being too slow!
InMotion develops a cell-level cooling technology which aims to facilitate ‘Electric Refueling’, meaning that the charging times of electric vehicles become equal to those of refueling petrol-powered cars. Our groundbreaking technology eliminates the long waiting times typically associated with electric vehicle charging. We hope that our groundbreaking technology can serve as a source of inspiration, motivating students, organizations, and society to take the next step in electric driving!
Because of our advancements in Electric Refueling technology, we have successfully achieved a remarkable charging time of 4 minutes! By showcasing Electric Refueling in the most challenging endurance racing environments, we aim to demonstrate its potential in all settings and create a more attractive image for electric vehicles. Ultimately, we dream of participating in the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a fully electric endurance race car.
Milestones along the road
In the roadmap below, an overview of the plan to
achieve the mission and vision is presented. By participating in races with
increasing intensity, experience with racing can be obtained.
12-minute charging: The first iteration of the fast charging battery pack. With this iteration, it is possible to charge the car in 12 minutes.
Driving event: The next step is to showcase a driving car that can charge in 12 minutes. To showcase the Revolution, a driving event will be organized in the form of a demo race.
1H Race: After the driving car event, the next step is to make it a racecar that can deliver continuous performance in a racing environment.
4H Race: After proving that driving a race is possible with a fast-charging racecar, the next challenge is to drive an endurance race. Moreover, the necessary competencies of a professional racing team can be obtained.
12H race: Before taking the ultimate challenge of a 24-hour race, a proof of concept will be conducted by racing a 12h race. The technological focus will be on creating a car that is optimized for continuous performance in endurance racing conditions.
24H of Le Mans: Ultimately, all previous experience of electric refueling, racing, and team operations should be combined to make the dream come true: joining the 24h race of Le Mans.
