FIRST RESULTS
The first results are available on the optimization of range extender, battery size and control for different vehicle niches (wp6). The battery size is the most central design parameter in the range extender. The battery is expensive so a larger battery should be avoided. On the other hand, a small battery will force the driver to start the combustion engine and, hence, use petrol. Read the full article here.
VISION OF OPTIMORE
The EC co-funded OptiMoRE project takes on the challenge to develop and optimize the concept of fully integrated, range-extended, electrified light duty vehicle. Three different Range Extender concepts will be developed and demonstrated to serve the niches from city vehicles, medium sized passenger cars up to light commercial vehicles.

THE PLAN & WAYS TO ACHIEVE
The OptiMoRE engine configuration starts from the basis, achieved in the FUEREX project, moving towards reducing cost and weight and improving efficiency in real driving cycles. One of the the OptiMoRE engines is a twin cylinder gasoline one, natural aspirated version. The vehicle targets defined three main working points for the Range Extender.
