Kreisel Electric has been selected by a jury of high-ranking industry specialists in the Energy Storage category for the Range Extender implemented in the Electric BMW 3 Series Touring. The Range Extender in the trunk of the BMW consists of eight exchangeable battery modules with a total capacity of 20 kWh. These provide an additional range of 120 kilometres and in addition to being used while driving can also be used as an efficient storage medium in stationary photovoltaic systems.
The Bavarian State Prize for electromobility, which is awarded in six categories, amounts to a total sum of € 60,000. The winners of each category will be announced at the official awards ceremony on 21 October 2014 – the first day of eCarTec Munich 2014, the world’s largest trade fair for electric and hybrid mobility – at 6pm at the Forum in Hall B3 at Messe München, the international trade show centre in Munich.
