AZU e-Mobility is obsess with “Design In” electric vehicles (EV), customized for cost effective manufacturing. We believe producing EVs with the lowest total cost of ownership will fast track transition to electric transportation. Together with automobile OEMs, fast turnaround regional micro-factories in strategic locations can be built to meet surge in demand.
AZU e-Mobility focus on optimizing EV efficiency and cost by integrating best available electric drive train system with non flammable, long life cycle battery capable of ultrafast recharge. We combine state of art carbon composite lightweight structure with advance Telemetry and Fleet Management System. AZU’s e-vehicles with fast charge capability enable round the clock operations for commercial applications.
AZU’s e-Bus is 12 meters long; the e-Bus body is design by CATA system. The 1-meter-wide passenger door with a first step plate 360 to 380mm above the ground accelerates the flow of passengers. The NANO Gel coated body parts improve thermal and acoustic insulation. Its spacious interior is astatically pleasing and offers high level of ride comfort. Passengers will experience a quieter ride, compared to conventional buses.
AZU’s battery pack uses Microvast’s LpTO cells with Battery Management System (BMS) and customized active liquid thermal management systems. Microvast’s LpTO battery pack is capable of more than 20,000 cycles.
MOCROVAST’S LPTO BATTERY PACK<
Ultra Fast charging, Non-Flammable and long cycle life
Microvast’s LpTO Lithium-Titanate electrochemistry is capable of 20C high-rate charging, 5-10 minute fast-charge has become a reality. Base on 20,000 cycles and 6C high rate charge & discharge cycles, LpTO packs have 10X longer cycle life compared to conventional Lithium ion battery.
LpTO’s non-combustion electrolyte and high temperature separator are two safety feature built into the cell design.
Microvast’s STL intelligent liquid thermal management system is non combustible and is unique in rechargeable battery system.
Widest operating temperature range from -30 + 60 Deg C
The lightweight battery pack capable of 10 minutes fast charge, offers numerous advantages to reduce battery capacity, vehicle weight and total vehicle cost.
10 MINUTES RECHARGE IS EQUIVALENT TO FILLING UP ICE VEHICLES
AZU’s Charger comprises of a double-gun charging mode. During charging, Battery parameters are monitored through a CAN network. The charging voltage and current of a charge system is regulated in real time by the Battery Management System (BMS).
When a charging gun is inserted into charging port, the e-Vehicle control system will receive a charge signal and will automatically switches to charging mode. The charge station requires a small footprint and is perfectly suited for full electric buses operating in an urban environment.
The e-Vehicle can be charged 5 to 7 times a day, at the origin station or terminal station. A single charge can add 40 to 50 kilometers range. Battery pack can be customized for single or round trip charge in a city bus route.
EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE, HIGH EFFICIENCY AND COST EFFECTIVE
AZU e mobility utilizes 554V, 110Ah LpTO battery packs with 400KW charge equipment. The charge process is automatically controlled by BMS; double-gun quick charge technology allows battery to be charged at 5 kWh/min rate. Compared to gas and fossil fuel buses, 10 minutes fast charge is more efficient and cheaper.
THE BRAKE SYSTEM
Regenerative braking system is controlled by two separate independent circuits. All brakes are designed as self-ventilated disc brakes. The brake system is designed as a regenerative system. It is design to activate the pneumatic system to recovery energy during braking and speed reduction.
Customized chassis, especially for e-Bus with one or two steps, the loading capacity is enhanced. The entire e-Bus has an AC variable-frequency motor with direct drive structure. Its’ drive system is simple, efficient, reliable and durable.
THE PREMIUM EFFICIENCY MOTOR- PEM MOTORS – THE SUPERIOR SUBSTITUTE
Increased efficiency is the main competitive edge of the PEM drive concept when compared to induction motors. This can be leveraged for drive cycles of city e-Buses. A magnetizing current is not required in the lower speed range, significantly higher efficiencies can be achieved.
Due to the high torque levels when driving and braking, these operating points have positive impact on the energy balance. This is compounded by the fact that for the same torque requirement, a PEM requires a lower current draw. Put briefly, the costs are reduced over the complete lifecycle.
The direct drive technology which uses large-torque AC asymmetric variable-frequency motor to drive the rear axle directly obviates the needs of a gearbox and a gearbox control system.
CARBON FIBER AND ADVANCED COMPOSITE MATERIALS WITH A HIGHER FUNCTIONAL INTEGRATION.
A novel concept of a vehicle structure based on carbon fiber and advanced composite materials with a higher functional integration.
Weight savings in vehicles enhances energy efficiency and decreases maintenance costs, especially in mass transit systems.
Lightweight carbon fiber and advanced composite materials have been used to replace traditional steel and aluminum components. Carbon fiber also is more corrosion resistant and offers a greater power-to-weight ratio.
The new wave of electric vehicles promotes the merger of the functional and aesthetic roles of composites, and continuous improvement in carbon-fiber laminate technology is accelerating these applications.
The all-carbon-composite bodies and other production models are providing data on the performance of hood and crash box designs in the event of a high-speed accident. So far, the outcome is excellent carbon composite performance under crash conditions.
INTELLIGENT BATTERY, VEHICLE MANAGEMENT AND TRACKING SYSTEM
The AZU’s intelligent bus management system on the bus is able to monitor position, speed and battery condition in real time.
This system combines the features of Internet of things and cloud computing that currently two foresight technologies. In addition to more sensor data return function modules, the perfect fusion of man, vehicle and technology is complete.
Software solution includes Feet Management and mobile application for the public transport system.
