EV Revolution: The Rise of Modular Platforms

Watt Electric Vehicle Company (WEVC), a UK-based EV innovator, has unveiled a game-changing platform architecture called PACES (Passenger And Commercial EV Skateboard). This modular marvel promises to revolutionize the low-volume EV landscape, empowering manufacturers and accelerating the electric vehicle revolution.

Building on Success: The eCV1 Legacy

WEVC’s commitment to sustainability and performance is evident in their flagship eCV1 van, touted for its 20+ year lifespan and eco-friendly design. Now, with PACES, they’re extending that vision to a wider range of electric vehicles.

The Power of PACES: Modular Design for Bespoke Needs

The core of PACES lies in its adaptability. Utilizing WEVC’s proprietary FlexTech technique, the platform utilizes laser-cut, interlocked, and bonded aluminum pieces. This innovative approach offers several key advantages:

  • Cost-Effectiveness: Compared to traditional skateboard platforms, PACES offers a lighter and more affordable solution.
  • Scalability and Customization: The modular nature allows for a wide range of designs, from sporty coupes to rugged off-road buggies.
  • Versatility: PACES accommodates various powertrain configurations, including front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive.

Sustainability at the Core: Aligning with WEVC’s Ethos

WEVC’s commitment to sustainable practices extends to PACES. The platform aligns with their vision of using recyclable materials and processes. This not only minimizes environmental impact but also paves the way for a potential closed-loop production cycle.

A Boon for the EV Industry:

WEVC CEO Neil Yates sees PACES as a catalyst for change: “This platform has been designed for almost any future high-performance EV.” By offering an accessible and adaptable platform, WEVC is lowering the barrier to entry for new EV manufacturers. This could lead to a surge of innovative electric vehicles, accelerating the shift towards a greener future.

The Future is Electric, and WEVC’s PACES is paving the way for a more customizable, sustainable, and exciting world of electric vehicles.
