FIA world record research vehicle
Key project requirements
| 18650 Cylindrical cells
| Custom 35 kWh battery pack
| System energy density above 200 Wh/kg
Podium Advanced Technologies has designed and built the
Blizz Primatist and all its components: from batteries
and electronics to chassis, body structure, aerodynamics,
With an astonishing Cx of 0.11, Blizz Primatist is a full electric
vehicle powered by a 204 hp electric motor, fueled by a Li-Ion
35 kWh custom battery pack.
One of the main challenges has been the identification and
characterization of Lithium cells with the highest specific
energy, that could allow to limit the weight of the 35 kWh
battery pack below 180 kg, given a total vehicle weight target
below 500 kg, and tuning our BMS to let them perform at their fullest potential.
On 30 April and 1st of May 2021 at the circuit of Nardo’ in Italy the Blizz Primatist has broken seven FIA world land speed records over 10 miles, 100 km, 100 miles for a full electric vehicle in both under 500 kg and above 500 kg weight categories, plus 1 hour world record in the former.
