McLaren Applied to be key technical partner for Kincsem Hyper GT and SUV
McLaren Applied today confirmed a new collaboration with BAK Motors, the Swiss-based parent company to new luxury automotive brand Kincsem. Under the terms of the deal, McLaren Applied will develop and supply drivetrain components, including inverters and motors, for the Kincsem Hyper GT and SUV – the world’s first nano-photonic light activated solid-state hydrogen hybrid hyper-car.
Stemming from its heritage in automotive and motorsports, McLaren Applied is a world leader in designing and manufacturing inverters and electric motors that deliver truly class leading performance. It has been at the forefront of automotive electrification technology for over a decade, starting with its first-generation inverter and motor developed specifically for the McLaren P1. Since then, it has continued to supply the automotive industry with cutting edge inverter technology, culminating in the IPG5 800V Silicon Carbide (SiC) inverter.
BAK Motors selected McLaren Applied’s IPG5 800V Silicon Carbide inverter, which was publicly debuted yesterday, as it delivers exceptional powertrain efficiency and performance improvements. It maximises vehicle range and supports 800V architecture to enable faster charging. Furthermore, the impressively low mass and volume of the inverter and motor reduces overall vehicle weight, is easier to package, and significantly contributes to an optimised driving experience and unrivalled performance.
