Techrules plans mass turbine production

LinkedIn +

Chinese track car manufacturer Techrules has announced plans to start large-scale production of its 45kW turbine system by the end of 2020. Best known for its turbine-recharging electric vehicle (TREV) system that powers its Ren RS track car, Techrules will begin production of the turbine tech in June.

Techrules originally showcased its patent-protected hybrid powertrain technology at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. The TREV system, which sits at the heart of the 1,287bhp Ren RS, comprises an 80kW turbine-generator.

Matthew Jin, CTO for Techrules, said, “It is no real surprise to us that the use of our technology as a range extender and also as a charging station for electric vehicles has created massive interest from companies and institutions around the world.

“However, this will require co-development with interested OEMs which, in turn, will require massive resources from our end. That’s why we have decided to focus our efforts on the 45kW turbine initially.”
