Notes -
  1. Electronic Vehicle Control Module (EVCM) (made by Zytek) provides the interface between the powertrain and the rest of the vehicle.
  2. EVCM integrates powertrain control, by including torque arbitration, temperature control and voltage management to allow better decision making using algorithms.
  3. Optimises the driver’s torque request based on a broad range of parameters including battery charge and temperature and the grip available at the tyres.
  4. Provides more with less, improving both the driving experience and the range while reducing the size, weight and cost of the power electronics and battery pack 
  5. Tested under the strict Euro-NCAP safety standards under Gordon Murray’s approval, with results that he claims are “first-class.”
  6. Survived a EuroNCAP 50kph side impact mobile deformable barrier test with "virtually zero cabin intrusion"
  7. World's Most Efficient Electric Car,
    Smart EV/ED uses 29% more energy/km,
    Mitsubishi iMiev uses 36% more energy/km,
    uses 86% more energy/km.
