Karma Automotive has announced a new modular platform that features a flat floor EV architecture. The new E-Flex platform is one of five demonstration projects designed to illustrate Karma’s technical direction and capabilities.
Karma’s Everyday BEV E-Flex is a single-motor, flat battery pack, front-wheel-drive platform that includes an 80 kWh battery and Karma’s new Silicon Carbide (SiC) inverter e-drive system. The platform is designed to be used for everyday sedans, as well as commercial vehicles.
“Karma’s goal in creating the Everyday BEV platform was to offer an economic solution for service vehicles, ridesharing vehicles, and last-mile delivery vehicles that can benefit from low cost of ownership and sustainable transportation,” said Mike Jones, Karma Automotive’s Director of Chassis Engineering. “The Everyday BEV platform provides a host of benefits over traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, including adherence to clean air zones for city driving and quieter transport for passengers.”
