Podium Advanced Technologies has designed, tested and raced a complete hybrid KERS system for recovering a moving vehicle’s kinetic energy under braking.
With a mechanical integration that comes straight from 2009/2010 FIA Formula One, GPS technology, and a choice of the highest quality of materials, Podium has developed a full set of complex algorithms for the deploy of the energy supply and recovery, in order to maximize performance.
In 2012 SCG P4/5C has been the first Lithium-Ion battery powered hybrid car to successfully complete the Nürburgring 24 hours race, winning its class.
