The Karma Automotive E-Flex van will come with extended-range electric vehicle (EREV) architecture. With EREV and battery electric systems, the E-Flex has an all-electric range of up to 200 miles and a combined range of over 400 miles.
The EREV van platform can be retrofitted to products including commercial delivery fleet vehicles, shuttle buses, tradesman service vehicles and camper vans. Its range is extended with an onboard generator, adhering to clean air zones and quieter transportation for passengers.
Karma says the E-Flex platform helps manufacturers optimize development costs to engineer, test, certify and build an EREV and BEV platform, enabling the electrification of their products with greater speed and efficiency.
Lewis Liu, vice president of business development at Karma Automotive, said, “Our Karma EREV E-Flex van platform offers a variety of e-powertrain configurations and a flexible design. We provide the canvas for our partners to create mobility solutions their way, while integrating Karma technology that has been featured and validated by our 2020 Revero GT on the road today.”
The EREV van platform can be delivered as a powertrain kit for existing chassis or as the E-Flex platform.
E-Flex platforms feature technology including production Revero GT drive motors in various configurations, gearbox, suspension, subframes and steering, in addition to body structure parts.
