EVFuture Mark I is our latest prototype vehicle. We are currently importing the motors and controllers but are going to be working with Indian manufacturers in the near future.
We are initially producing 15 of them to test out on our dirt roads. We will be fine tuning them and once that is done we will take it to the next level.
EVFuture Prototype On The Road
We are testing different motors and controllers to get a feel for what works with respect to power, mileage, etc.
Here are some of our results so far:
We have tested out various Indian batteries and have found some that we are happy with. We have imported some lithium packs from a chinese company and are testing them. The weight is great - our 48V 20AH pack weighs just 12 kgs! The equivalent mileage with a 26AH pack of lead acid batteries is weights nearly 40 KG.
We have developed an advanced Battery management system (BMS) that will plug into any standard controller. It has a 128x64 pixel graphic LCD display and shows and monitors battery state. The prototype in the picture detects speed automatically from the hall sensors of the motor and the wheel diameter. It monitors current, voltage and distance travelled. A trip counter button lets you reset the trip counter so you can easily track distance between charges. Another button, the Mode button, lets you switch between 4 different driving modes. Full mode lets you drive at maximum power, where the controller you use is the limit. 20A mode limits current to twenty amps, making riding still enjoyable but with somewhat less pickup. 10A mode limits power to 10 Amps, making the bike slow but steady. This is the ideal mode for economy driving, and goes about 25 km/h. A 25k/h mode limits the speed to 25 km/h but does not affect power.
Another feature of this BMS is an external temperature sensor that connects to the controller casing. Monitoring of this lets the BMS switch off or reduce power based on the heat of the controller, making it more difficult to blow the electronics.
We are developing this into a product which we hope to sell on the indian market and abroad. Interested parties should contact us for more details.

On Earth Day 2008, EVfuture launched a solar electric vehicle charging station in Auroville, South India.
The charging station has 2 panels on the roof and built-in chargers for 36V bicycles. For people with different voltages, two 220V sockets are provided for external chargers. The system works by charging batteries during the day and so people can charge their vehicle at any time of day or night.
