Quanta presents a Corvette with hybrid technology

Quanta Hybrid Performance QHP770Quanta Products, which has been involved 25 years in the automotive aftermarket producing products for Corvettes, is moving on to the hybrid sector. The Quanta Hybrid Performance is a new division that has been formed to develop and produce products that integrate electric traction motors into conventional internal combustion engine powered vehicles to produce unique “hy performance” vehicles.

Quanta Hybrid Performance has engineered and produced a unique hybrid electric vehicle, the Quanta Corvette QHP770. This car is a C6 Z06 Chevrolet Corvette which has been modified with Quanta Hybrid Performance’s integrated hybrid technology. The Quanta Corvette QHP770 incorporates two 100kW YASA 750 axial flux electric motors into the rear differential of the car. Power is provided by a 400 V, 30 Ah battery pack coupled through two Sevcon controllers. The combination of the 505hp LS7 Chevrolet power plant and the Quanta Hybrid Performance hybrid electric technology results in over 1500 lb-ft of torque and more than 770 peak horsepower, which puts the acceleration of the QHP770 in supercar territory.

The QHP770 is being displayed at the SEMA Show 2013 to gage customer reaction.
