KLD, Samsung Partner to Develop Electric Scooter Drives
KLD Energy Technologies, Inc., a developer of high-performance electric motor technology (earlier post), and Samsung SDI entered into a cooperative relationship to develop systems which will incorporate Samsung SDI’s lithium-ion battery cells and KLD’s electric vehicle drive technologies.
KLD Energy Technologies has developed an advanced, high-performance electric motor system technology for electric scooters and motorcycles. The motor, which uses a nano-crystalline composite material to conduct energy more efficiently than traditional, iron-core motors; controller; and battery pack are designed to work together to optimize system performance and regeneration.
As designed and applied for an electric scooter application, the KLD system delivers speeds of more than 80 km/h (50 mph) with more than 40% less power consumption than comparable systems and the highest regeneration efficiency in its class. Peak torque from the 5 kW motor is 140 N·m (103 lb-ft).
