Electric FR-S by TGMY




http://www.carsales.com.au/news/2012...t-suzuka-33518


Now comes news of an electric FT86 (known Down Under just as the 86) coupe, largely care of Japanese electric propulsion specialist TGMY. In place of the 2.0-litre boxer petrol engine, the FT86EV uses a 75kW electric motor drawing power from a rear-mounted 37kWh lithium polymer battery pack.

Although it puts out less than half the wattage of the normal mill and, at 1460kg, weighs 200kg more, it makes up for it with a 20 per cent more torque, available instantaneously. The FT86EV puts its 240Nm of torque to ground through a four-speed manual transmission, pushing it to speeds of up to 200km/h.

On its first public run, it managed a lap of 2:57.06 minutes around the 5.8km Suzuka F1 circuit. By comparison, a 205kW Honda NSX makes it in 2:50.

sounds good if they can make it a hybrid! 150kw hybrid PLease!

That'll sort out the 86's lack of low-end torque for sure...

It's not a hybrid. It's fully electric.

Hmm...I'm not sure how I feel about this yet.

Thoughts after watching the video: The car seemed slower, unbalanced, and less responsive, E.g. on turn 16 on the first lap...and not to mention surprisingly loud for an electric

If Toyota/TMGY team up with Tesla again like they did for the Rav4EV, that would definitely be interesting to see

I love those wheels... If I had a Whiteout FRS, I would make it a mission in life to get those. Very Initial D-esque.

I dig em too...best I've seen so far...but I haven't seen anything out of the LA show yet. Car would be a nice competitor for BMW's i3 if both came to the market.

More torque?? But at what cost? 200kg of weight with half the HP? No thanks!

Okay, I guess?

I'm not really ready to see an electric motor for the GT86. Maybe in some odd years later on in the future I'll be more receptive to electric or hybrid cars, just not yet.

I would love it. If money was of no matter I would have an electric car. The Tesla S (the 4 door sedan) for example accelerates faster than an M5. Electric cars can shred like nothing else and I want one. Nothing feels better than a super flat torque curve from way down low.

But the sound of combustion through the exhaust pipes. No level of power or efficiency replaces that when you are cruising down the highway

I mean.. it's not for many of us (myself included).

However I do think it's pretty bad ass. I am all for R&D.

Google "RS Watanabe"... Can't get a hold of some legit Watanabe's? Checkout Panasport.

What I like about ID, almost all of the parts you see on their cars exist. I mean, Tsuchiya san is behind the scenes so shit can make any kind of sense right? hahahaha

The electric motor's power rating has almost nothing to do with the peak power unlike ICE(internal combustion engine). That 75kw is what it is rated to maintain for 1 hour. Electric motors can generate far more than that for brief bursts of time, but it depends on the controller's amperage limit and the battery pack's discharge rating.

There's no way to know how much power it's actually generating without more info.

I just wish there was more info. :/

Just so you guys know, all this hybrid electric BS doesn't make sense. I rather burn coal in my car, then someone burning coal to make electricity and then using electricity. Making electricity at its best systems is like 7% of its original energy. Who actually ends up doing more damage?

I've always dreamed I would do this to my BRZ when it becomes old, hopefully in 20 years I still have her and the battery tech is quite advanced that switching to electric is considered an upgrade rather than a compromise
