Monday, September 28, 2015

The Gateshead firm's GEN5 motor controller was also well received at the industry's premier trade show in Detroit.

Electric vehicle component pioneers Sevcon are geared for more growth on the back of a new product which is currently on trial with 12 of the world's leading vehicle manufacturers.

The Gateshead company also picked up 50 leads for its high-performance controller GEN5, after the new product was officially launched this month at Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, the industry's premier trade show in the US car-making capital of Detroit.

The new generation controller, which follows on from the success of the earlier GEN4, is a high-voltage, high-power AC device, designed specifically for high-performance, on-road applications.

Product Manager Stephen Chilton said the GEN5 is now in early acceptance testing with 12 vehicle manufacturers around the world and will be available for delivery in early 2016.
