Bombardier launches e-mobility solution



Bombardier announced the launch of Bombardier PrimoveCity, its new e-mobility solution, together with the establishment of a new center of competence to enable the next generation of electric mobility.

PrimoveCity addresses the range and recharging constraints of electric vehicles and promises to reshape transportation by providing common technology for all forms of electric vehicles, including trams, buses, commercial vehicles, taxis and cars. The new center of excellence is located at Bombardier's engineering and manufacturing site in Mannheim, Germany, which will also have a state-of-the-art testing and development facility opening in September 2011.

The new e-mobility center of competence will support future partnerships, projects and opportunities in the fast moving electric mobility sector.

PrimoveCity utilizes the Primove technology capable of providing power transfer for all-electric vehicles. Using inductive energy transfer, Primove equipment mounted under the vehicle generates power from cables creating a magnetic field placed under the ground's surface. The system only energizes when it is fully covered by the vehicle. Vehicle and wayside components are designed to meet all applicable safety standards. Reliable performance is ensured, even under adverse weather and ground conditions such as snow, rain, ice, sand or water, according to Bombardier.
