On the 14th of Feb, 2017, the IEVRA (India Electric Vehicle Race Association) along with Rexnamo Electro Private Limited launched the nation’s first Electric Highway – a network of fast chargers spanning the national capital region in the north to Himalayas (Uttarakhand). The Electric Highway consists of a total of 12 fast chargers, allowing a 30 minute recharge to about 80% capacity for most EVs.
This project was conceived by members of the Delhi NCR (Ghaziabad) branch of the IEVRA and Rexnamo, and was taken up by the Rexnamo in June last year.
The chargers consist of a 43 kW Fast AC option (Type-Two, or Mennekes connector, suits Rexnamo Super Cruiser Bike) and two 50 kW Fast DC options – SAE Combo for the BMW i3 and ChaDeMo for Japanese makes of car. A slow charger is also located at each station, able to deliver up to 7 kW. A humble 15 amp GPO is also available.
According to a research from the University of Michigan, it takes a rider 1.5 seconds to read instruments or glance in the mirror. During 1.5 seconds, at a speed of 90 km/h (56 mph), the vehicle travels 37.5 meters (41 yards). It is a time during which anything can happen on the road. We strive to offer solutions whereby the riders’ attention does not need to be distracted each time they look for the required information. Using state-of-the-art technology we have created the Rexnamo module offering a whole new riding experience. Implementing some of the most advanced solutions based on Augmented Reality technology, the Rexnamo module provides the rider with the necessary road information and motorcycle parameters. Information is displayed in front of the [...]
