Innovative technologies that support a wide range of mobility and mobility services, including the conceptual model, “SPACe_C” (for Sharing Panasonic Autonomous Connected e-Mobility) which is comprised of a powertrain base and a detachable cabin on top. Panasonic showcases an environmentally conscious, safe and comfortable lifestyle by supporting the mobility of people and things and proposing new ways of utilizing mobility.
“48v ePowertrain” & “SPACe_C”
The “48v ePowertrain Platform” that Panasonic introduced in CES 2018 has evolved. With the same volume, the new powertrain boasts double the output and will help make compact EVs more lightweight, maximize cabin space, and extend travel distance.
“SPACe_C,” which is comprised of the “48v ePowertrain Platform (drive unit)” that can be combined with a variety of cabins (interior unit), provides a solution that expands possibilities for mobility by reducing costs and responding to multiple purposes.
On stage, the eMobility “SPACe_C” is demonstrating how it will serve as a basic infrastructure that connects products and people, and support people’s lives and revitalize communities. As an example of how this solution may be applied, Panasonic has on display a “SPACe_C eMart” equipped with a refrigerated cabin, which is introducing a solution that can deliver fresh food to consumers’ desired locations.
