UTAC CERAM AT THE HEART OF THE NEW RETROFIT DEVICE
Transforming your traditional Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) car into an electric car is a solution that will soon be available for French drivers. Indeed, new national regulations developed with the assistance of UTAC CERAM have been presented by the French government to the European Commission to facilitate the approval of retrofitted vehicles. The imminent implementation of this measure will allow owners who cannot afford a new Electric Vehicle to make their current car less polluting. This system, already adopted in Italy and Germany, fits perfectly into the circular economy.
The vast majority of vehicles still operating on our highways will be capable of a switch to electrification, with the exception of the most recent modern vehicles (less than 5 years old for light vehicles) or some collectors/classic vehicles. This new ability allows the fitment of a similar sized ‘like-for-like’ electric motor so that the maximum electric power of the vehicle must be in line with the retrofitted ICE vehicle.Only vehicles converted by a professional retrofitter may be approved, which must be declared in advance by the manufacturer and evaluated by UTAC CERAM.
