eliica03-01-2009: Eliica Wheel Motor EV Gets Japanese Auto Industry backing. President of small research company SIM-Drive Corp. and a professor of engineering at Japan’s Keio University, Shimizu has spent 30 years developing his dream car, which centers on a set of motors built into the Eliica’s wheels – all eight of them.

So far, he and his team at Keio’s Electric Vehicle Laboratory have developed eight prototypes including the $5 million Eliica. A ninth, a 4-wheeler, is being readied for January. Through use of in-wheel motors and a special platform structure into which main EV components can be placed, Shimizu estimates energy consumption can be cut in half compared with other electric cars.

In fact, his next model will incorporate a 24-kWh battery, equaling the capacity of Nissan Motor Co. Ltd.’s Leaf electric-vehicle battery, giving it an estimated range of 200 miles (322 km) with the air-conditioner off, nearly double the Leaf’s reported range.

Although history is against inventors like Shimizu, he nevertheless has succeeded in putting together a lineup of 30 corporate partners, each paying nearly $250,000 to join the project. Chief among them are auto makers Mitsubishi Motors Corp. and Isuzu Motors Ltd., as well as Japan Aviation Electronics Industry Co. Ltd., Pioneer Corp., Sanden Corp. and Tokyo Electric Power Co. Ltd. Shimizu claims at annual volumes of 100,000 units, the car will cost ¥1.5 million ($17,600) to produce, not including the battery. Using four in-wheel motors at the same production level will run an estimated ¥120,000 ($1,400).

    Test Drive: The Full Electric Eliica vs Porsche 911 Turbo

    The Eliica (or the Electric Lithium-Ion Car) is a battery electric vehicle prototype, or concept car designed by a team at Keio University in Tokyo, led by Professor Hiroshi Shimizu. The 5.1 metre (16.7 feet) car runs on a lithium-ion battery and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (60 mph) in four seconds. In 2004, the Eliica reached a speed of 370 km/h (230 mph) on Italy’s Nardo High Speed Track. The team’s goal is to exceed 400 km/h (250 mph), breaking the record set by today’s street-legal gasoline-powered vehicles.

    The Eliica weighs in at 2400 kg (5291 lbs) and seats the driver and three passengers. The body of the four door car has a futuristic, bullet shape design which was tested in a wind tunnel. The front doors open forward and the rear doors open upward like wings. The car’s platform contains 4 tracks of 80 batteries, which make for one third of the vehicle’s cost. They currently require about 10 hours of recharging from empty to full charge, and can be easily charged off of a residential power grid.

    The car has eight wheels enabling it to be closer to the ground for better traction. Each of the wheels has a 60 kW (80 hp) electric motor, giving a 480 kW (640 hp) eight wheel drive which can tackle all kinds of road surfaces. The four front wheels steer. The electric motors mean that the Eliica can deliver a smooth acceleration free from gear shifts of about 0.8 g. Each wheel contains a disc brake and employs a regenerative brake system to recover energy.
