Jinhua, China - March 6, 2017 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) Kandi Technologies Group, Inc. (NASDAQ GS: KNDI) (the "Company" or "Kandi") today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Yongkang Scrou Electric Co, Ltd. ("Yongkang Scrou") successfully launched its next generation advanced drive motor, the result of nearly two years of research and development work by Yongkang Scrou's technical engineering team.
Yongkang Scrou's next generation drive motor achieves higher output efficiencies through improved design, processing, and use of advanced materials, all of which reduce the loss of electromagnetic energy, heat energy, and mechanical energy. Compared to the previous generation drive motor, its energy conversion efficiency and rated power are increased by more than 6% and 30%, while manufacturing and production costs remain roughly the same. Using the next generation drive motor in electric vehicles ("EVs") enhances dynamic performance, and EV drive system efficiency is increased by 10%-15%, resulting in reduced energy consumption of 10%-15%.
Kandi Electric Vehicles Group Co., Ltd.'s (the "JV Company") research institute is working on upgrading the drive motors used in a variety of its pure EV models. The upgrades are expected to improve vehicle performance significantly and reduce production costs. The JV Company's management team has decided to implement the next generation drive motor in all of its EV production starting July 1, 2017. It estimates it will purchase over 20,000 next generation drive motor units from Yongkang Scrou in the second half of 2017.
Mr. Hu Xiaoming, Chairman of Kandi, commented, "We are excited about Yongkang Scrou's innovation of the next generation drive motor.
