Geneva Motor Show 2010: Zero Emission Optimal Energy Joule Energy Efficient Car

Optimel Energy

Born to be… electric. As a plug-in zero emission vehicle, the Joule show car provides consumers with a strong sense of the ultimate design and layout of the car that will go on sale in early 2013.

You can also expect to spot the Joule on South Africa roads in forthcoming months, as a fleet will be sent out to gather technical feedback on the car and also to gauge your response. These cars, like the show car, will be hand-built in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Volume production for Joule will take place at a state-of-the-art facility here at home in South Africa. This will come with key design goals including a range of 300 kilometres based on the UDDS cycle, a genuine freeway cruising capability, seating for five, a 5-Star NCAP safety rating and an on-sale price starting from R235 000 (Euro 23 400) in today’s retail terms.

Envisioned by Cape Town-based Optimal Energy and originally designed by South African-born Keith Helfet, Joule has been refined by Zagato’s Total Design Centre. It will also form the centerpiece of a stand at Geneva shared by Optimal Energy and the iconic Milanese design house.

“We’re extremely excited about Joule being displayed at Geneva,” says Optimal Energy’s CEO Kobus Meiring. “With Optimal Energy, South Africa now also has its own OEM. The EV market is expected to grow exponentially over the next few decades, and owning an EV brand will increase South Africa’s role substantially. It is Optimal Energy’s vision to lead the EV industry in South Africa and to expand globally, and as a flexible company with no legacy investments in outdated technologies, we have the opportunity to position Joule uniquely in an awakening market.”

It all started with an idea for a home-grown zero emissions vehicle in 2005. Since then Joule’s mantra has been Born Electric, and as a result a key strength and differentiator of Optimal Energy’s design is a clean sheet approach. Optimal Energy is the only local automotive manufacturer exclusively focused on electric cars for the mass market. By harnessing both the latest technology and the best brains in the automotive and electrical spheres, Joule will be exceptionally energy-efficient from the cradle to the grave.

At its heart is an advanced 36kWh traction battery consisting of 15 modules, and each module containing 30 Lithium-ion cells. The battery provides power to a synchronous permanent magnet motor capable of generating 65 kW of power and torque of 280 Nm. An integrated, programmable on-board charger ensures that no external charging infrastructure is required and that charging can be synchronised with off-peak electricity. A holistic approach to energy regeneration and energy conservation (including an optional photo-voltaic solar panel mounted on your Joule’s roof) will ensure that your Joule takes advantage of all potential power sources.
