Firstly, we would express our regret and sympathy to whom suffered from the disaster experienced in Tohoku Pacific Ocean Earthquake.
SIM-Drive has developed the Advance Development Model No. 1 for the period between January 19, 2010 and March 31, 2011. We would report that we completed the construction of the vehicle developed under the project. We named the model “SIM-LEI” as its nickname. LEI stands for the initial letters of “Leading Efficiency In-Wheel motor”.
At first, we planned to place the press presentation on March 29, 2011, however, considering those who suffered from the disaster this time, we decided to simply announce the completion of the model by this press release only.
The object of this project is to develop a prototype of the advanced development model aiming to start mass-production in 2013. This project collected 34 establishments and organizations who intend to enter in the electrical vehicle business in the future.
