UQM Technologies (NYSEAMEX:UQM) reports selection of its PowerPhase Pro 100 electric driveline for the World Kar battery EV in development by California’s KleenSpeed Technologies.

California’s KleenSpeed has chosen UQM for its ‘production intent’ World Kar.

The KleenSpeed World Kar is a concept EV that was shown at a Stanford University Vehicle Concept Showcase event earlier this month. The UQM PowerPhase Pro-powered version is to begin real-world testing in July, UQM says.

“Our past work with UQM on the KleenSpeed EV-X11 racing program showed us that UQM propulsion systems provide the performance and efficiency in a small, lightweight package that we wanted in the World Kar,” KleenSpeed president Tim Collins says in a UQM release.

“We look forward to working with UQM through the testing and development phase of this production-intent KleenSpeed vehicle,” Collins said.
