2009 SSC Ultimate Aero: more details revealed

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Details of a revolutionary EV technology was released lately by Shelby Super Cars (SSC) which it will unwrap in the second quarter of 2009. The recipient of SSC's ground-breaking all-electric powertrain will be the latest Ultimate Aero which is the fastest production car in the world according to Guinness. This is intended to create the ultimate Aero EV and will strengthen the company's position as an auto industry standard.

The new SSC technology, unlike other car makers, will set a new benchmark in 10 minute recharges, extra horsepower and a 200-mile range from a single charge.

What sets SSC apart from other car makers in this sphere is the fact that SSC is developing Green technologies for a host of applications for a even a greater host of car ranges, in contrast to the competition which develops Green technologies only for specific cars.

AESP, acronym for All-Electric Scalable Powertrain, is SSC's unique electric powertrain package which, besides being compact and lightweight, also comes with scalable horsepower, brief recharge time capabilities, and liquid cooling. The Nanotechnology Rechargeable Lithium Batter pack of SSC can be charged in just 10 minutes on a standard 110V outlet and enables the vehicle to reach a range of 150-200 miles between charges.

This is a wiser alternative to EVs that require overnight recharging and a more practical alternative to internal combustion engined cars. The main feature in the AESP is its power scaling capabilities.

For economy and mid-sized cars it is scalable to 200hp, for light trucks and SUV, 500 hp, and for heavy-duty delivery trucks, equipment, buses and military vehicles, it can be scaled up to 1200 hp.

This radical power design, which is capable of more linear power with 100% torque at 0 rpm, shows beyond doubt that electric-powered vehicle is a practical, more efficient replacement for gas-powered ones.
