GKN is making its debut in the hill climb at the world-renowned Festival of Speed with a record-breaking electric race car and a stand that offers an engaging introduction into the challenges of automotive engineering.
The TMG EV P002 electric race car, a 2012 winner in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, features two innovative GKN EVO eDrive axial flux motors, which deliver 1200Nm of torque to the rear wheels.
Apprentices, graduates and senior excutives from GKN will be on hand at Stand 18 in the Moving Motor Show to talk to people interested in a career in engineering and interactive displays will offer a more hands-on experience for future young engineers.
The GKN EVO eDrive Systems’ eMotor used in the TMG P002 was developed in the UK. It is one of several new types of high performance electric motors with size, weight, performance, and efficiency advantages when compared to traditional electric motors. Its short length and high relative output makes axial flux motors suitable for use in more advanced drivetrain systems, where vehicle designers need the smallest, lightest, and most powerful motors possible.
