InMotion IM01

InMotion is not a well-known company, that presented the IM01, which is racing car which aims to break the Nurburgring record and win Le Mans. Right now, it is in the evolution stage from two groups of students, one of the Technical University of Eindhoven and one of Fontys University of Applied Sciences. The two groups hope to have it ready by the end of 2015, to try to participate in the 24 hours of Le Mans in 2017.

InMotion IM01

It is a hybrid vehicle powered by four electric motors (one for each wheel) and a high capacity battery pack. Naturally, because it aims to the victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the batteries do not have the ability to provide energy for the entire duration of the match, and it uses a rotary engine as a range extender.

The choice of the rotary engine is wise, since the groups want to take advantage of the low number of moving parts and the fact that it rotates on ideal rpm. Furthermore, the IM01 will have advanced aerodynamic, while the cockpit will be so narrow that the driver can only look forward. Finally, like the Nissan ZEOD RC, it will not have mirrors but cameras, which will transfer the video to some kind of screen at the interior.

The InMotion IM01, even if it wins the Le Mans, its win will not count, since it will participate as a pilot, “Garage 56” vehicle.
