    UQM in Audi A3 PHEV

    I believe that a UQM 75 hp motor is in the A3 hybrid that is coming to the US next year. They used the A 1 as a test mule.
    The Audi A1 e-tron concept car is an electric variant of the A1, first shown at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.[25] The A1 e-tron is a series plug-in hybrid (PHEV), powered by an electric motor with a continuous output of 45 kW (61 PS; 60 bhp), and a peak output of 75 kW (102 PS; 101 bhp). A fully charged 12 kWh lithium-ion battery gives a maximum range of 50 kilometres (31 mi), after which a 254 cc Wankel engine is used to power a 15 kW (20 PS; 20 bhp) generator with a 12 L (2.6 imp gal; 3.2 US gal) fuel tank.[26] This is estimated to provide an additional range of 124 mi (200 km).[25] The company claims the car weighs 1,190 kg (2,600 lb), can reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 10.2 seconds and a maximum speed of 80 mph (129 km/h).[27]
    A field testing programme of twenty A1 e-tron vehicles began in Munich in late 2010.

    Look at the KW specs for the A3 PHEV headed for the USA
    Power comes from a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 150 hp, while a 75 kW electric motor assists for a total system output of 204 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The powerplant is hooked up to a dual-clutch six-speed automatic transmission that will get the A3 E-Tron to 62 mpg in 7.6 seconds.

    Now they are testing a larger motor. Is this for the A4 or A6. Latest press release from UQM.
    For example, the Audi A1 e-tron extended-range all-electric test-fleet vehicles use UQM PowerPhase Select 125 systems to drive the wheels at all times. The ICE in the car is used to generate electricity to extend the range as needed. The maximum all-electric range of the A1 e-tron is 30 miles (50 km), while the maximum combined range in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) is 155 miles (250 km).

    Audi can buy out UQM in a Heart beat,. 30 million market cap. Hopefully the long team holders of the stock can benefit.

    Sentiment: Buy
