Mission Motors, a San Francisco-based electric vehicle company, has unveiled its EV powertrain division, Mission Electric Vehicle Technology (MissionEVT) at the 2010 Specialty Equipment Marketing Association Show (SEMA).

Mission Motors will use MissionEVT to design and supply EV powertrains, including energy storage systems, drive systems and software intelligence, to the OEM market in addition to offering engineering and integration services.

MissionEVT will develop new technologies in battery systems, motor control, and vehicle software management to meet the speed, range, packaging and other requirements of the company’s new electric motorcycle, the Mission One PLE superbike.

The technologies to be developed by MissionEVT are expected to provide improvements to the weight, size, and modularity of the core electric vehicle components for applications ranging from powersports to automotive, and from battery electric to gasoline hybrid.

Mission Motors CEO, Jit Bhattacharya said that with MissionEVT, our company will be able to expand into new markets, bringing the advances it has made in EV technology to multiple vehicle platforms and manufacturers.

“This creates a tremendous high-volume opportunity for Mission’s powertrain technology, while solving a critical need for vehicle manufacturers trying to keep pace with the rapid electrification of vehicles,” Bhattacharya said.
