Meteor Power is a manufacturer of high performance motorcycles, power electronics and compact hybrid engines. The company is delivering the first prototypes of a new generation of high performance motorcycles in Q4 2016 ready to bring to market in Q4 2017.
Meteor Power has completed design and modelling of a powerful new electric motor and controller for electric vehicles with integrated rapid charger. With a patentable design there is no weight or size penalty for the charger. Producing 200kW (268hp) the motor is capable of propelling a motorcycle to 215mph (344kph). It can also recharge to 85 per cent capacity in approximately four minutes, i.e. faster than you can fill with petrol.
The company is developing compact hybrid electric powertrain for use in motorcycles and lightweight sports cars. Just 300cc and only 350mm x 300mm x 160mm, the petrol engine used to generate electricity manages to combine class leading power of 400hp/litre with a small size suitable for a wide range of vehicles.
With a patentable solution to reduce emissions even further Meteor Power will sell its own range of hybrid motorcycles and has already attracted interest from hydraulic lift companies, taxi companies, automotive and marine sectors. We expect the technology will reduce motorcycle emissions from 200g/km to 40g/km CO2, saving 612Kg CO2 per motorcycle.
