16 Jul OPTEMUS project finished – Increasing driving range of electric vehicles by 40 %
Reduced energy consumption and extended driving range of electric vehicles
The EU research project OPTEMUS addressed the major barriers towards mass-adoption of EVs through the holistic combination of new technological developments. The introduced solutions allow reducing the energy consumption for comfort and component cooling as well as traction and thus help increasing the driving range of electric vehicles by about 40 %. The technologies developed have been virtually tested as well as implemented in a Fiat 500e Demonstrator Car.
The project, coordinated by VIRTUAL VEHICLE, has been now successfully closed. Top experts in their corresponding fields at EU level covered the entire automotive value chain: one major OEM, three major TIER1 suppliers, leading companies in simulation, SMEs, and academia and R&D institutes.
