How Metrocab Works
Electric Motors

Frazer-Nash electric motors combine control technology with permanent magnet motor design to achieve an efficiency of over 96%.
Motor pairs are configured to drive the vehicle’s wheels independently, producing optimum torque and performance at all times.

Battery Pack

Frazer-Nash designed lithium-ion battery packs are used in the Metrocab.
The modular design of the battery pack is matched by the battery management system which keeps the cells in optimum condition, ensuring a long operation life.

Range Extender

The Range Extender is a compact internal combustion engine coupled to a matched generator.
The electricity generated charges the battery pack and can also be diverted to power the electric motors.

Metrocab is an electric vehicle with an internal combustion engine (range extender) powering a matched generator, charging the battery pack and providing energy directly to the electric motors.
Although Metrocab is fully self-charging while in normal operation, a Portable Electric Vehicle Supply Extension (EVSE) is also available for ‘home’ charging from a domestic mains socket.
A ‘Digital Differential’ replaces the mechanical differential and eliminates the mechanical losses associated with conventional internal combustion and hybrid drive trains, giving improved motor control, traction and performance - with zero maintenance.
