MotoCzysz is partnering with Indiana-based Remy Electric Motors to bring the electric motorcycle power plant to the four-wheeled world. Remy, a former division of General Motors that specialized in electric and hybrid powertrains, developed the D1g1tal Dr1ve system used in the TT Zero and e-Power winning E1pc. According to Remy the D1-10 electric motor makes 135hp and 250 lbs•ft of torque, all while in a compact form-factor. With power outputs likely to improve, and the small footprint of the D1-10, the potential for the collaboration in four-wheeled vehicles is certainly beyond intriguing.

“MotoCzysz proved their ability to optimize a Remy motor with their astounding test results and win in the TT Zero electric motorcycle race on the Isle of Man this year,” says John Weber, Remy chief executive officer. “Integrating that same groundbreaking engineering with the patented Remy HVH motor is a win for our electric automotive and light duty commercial customers. Remy and MotoCzysz have the experience and technology to make this remarkable propulsion system the new industry standard for electric automobiles.”

With MotoCzysz already known to be working on a three-wheeled project with Bajaj, it isn’t a far stretch of the imagination to expect some sort of similar hybrid power plant to be at work in that venture as well.

    Very cool- I have been hoping to hear something like this, I really like the battery safety aspects of his design at least as much as the power (well, that and the sexy bodywork on the E1PC).
