Title: Baseline and verification tests of the Unique Mobility, Inc. Electrek 2+2. Final test report, August 8, 1980-May 29, 1981

Abstract

Unique Mobility, Inc. is the manufacturer of the Electrek, Model 2+2, electric vehicle. The vehicle was tested under the direction of MERADCOM from 8 August 1980 to 29 May 1981. The tests are part of a Department of Energy project to assess advances in electric vehicle design. This report presents the performance test results on the Electrek 2+2. The Unique Mobility Electrek 2+2 is custom designed as an electric vehicle. The Electrek 2+2 has a fiberglass and polycarbonate body that has an enclosed battery tunnel running up the center of the vehicle and a motor compartment which is almost completely enclosed on the underside. The propulsion system is made up of a Soleq controller, a specially modified General Electric shunt wound 32-hp electric motor, and 16 6-V Globe-Union batteries. The Electrek 2+2 has regenerative braking. Further details of the vehicle are included in the Vehicle Summary Data Sheet, Appendix A. The results of the testing are given. For the SAE J227a cycle tests, there are two groupings of tests: One in which the coast portion of the tests was not used for regenerative braking, and one in which it was.
