MGU

(Motor + Gearbox Unit)

Leveraging a strong relationship with Parker-Hannifin's advanced electric traction motor division, the Lightfighter benefits from Parker's water-cooled internal permanent magnet (IPM) magnetics design integrated within a custom housing and direct drive gear reduction to create an impressively light-weight, power & torque dense MGU.

ESS

Energy Storage System (i.e. Battery)

The Lightfigher's rechargeable lithium-ion battery is built with the latest generation of Automotive format lithium-NMC chemistry cells from Farasis Energy, optimized for great power as well as cycle life to ensure they can withstand the punishment of racing. The aluminum enclosure and active thermal management strategy tested over the last two years were all developed in-house.
