Drastic climate changes are largely the result of industrial activities, and have rapidly become the biggest threat to humanity; however, the full impact has not been fully grasped by the policymakers and the general public. To take initiative in corporate social responsibility, and further accomplishing the prospect of environmental protection, LUXGEN offers a perfect choice for those visionaries with intention to contribute their part in protecting the environment - the LUXGEN7 MPV EV+.

While the majority of vehicles worldwide are still consuming none-renewable fossil fuel, LUXGEN, which started the research and development of electric vehicle technology years in advance, has launched the worlds first 7-passenger EV. EV could be seen as the only option that generates no carbon emissions and delivers eco-friendly clean power when comparing with other fuel technologies such as LPG and hybrid power. Through the collaborative R&D with the AC Propulsion (ACP), a world-leading electric vehicle pioneer, LUXGEN has developed the unique core technologies for the LUXGEN7 MPV EV+ including its 240hp and 265Nm torque AC induction motor capable of propelling the LUXGEN7 MPV EV+ from 0 to 62mph (100km/h) in 8.6 sec, and reach a maximum speed of 90mp/h (145km/h). Most surprisingly, the lithium-ion battery packs can offer the LUXGEN7 MPV EV+ over 200miles (300km) cruising range at a fixed speed of 25mp/h (40km/h) on a single charge. Such achievements have re-established the benchmark for an EV, and substantially closed the performance and utility gap between an EV and a fossil fuel powered counterpart.

The innovative EV technologies of the LUXGEN7 MPV EV+ includes the power management and transformation center, PEU (power electronic unit), which integrates the induction motor, charger, battery management system, and the ability to convert kinetic energy into electricity via a regenerative braking system. The high performance lithium-ion battery pack, which provides a high endurance power supply for the entire vehicle through its modularized design, and could discharge excess electricity back into the power grid to balance electricity utilization during peak and off-peak times. The traction induction motor with its maximum power output of 180kW (approx. 240hp), offers LUXGEN 7MPV EV+ unprecedented driving enjoyment.

In addition to its impressive power performance, the energy efficiency of the LUXGEN7 MPV EV+ is outstanding with an energy conversion rate at up to 80%. The LUXEN7 MPV EV+ strikes an amazing EER performance which is 1.7 times higher than a hybrid and diesel vehicle, and 2 times higher than a gasoline-powered vehicle. Such efficient energy utilization places LUXGEN at the leadership position in offering the best eco-friendly transportation solutions
