The project undertaken by the Spanish company on behalf of the European Commission* shows that electric vehicles can have sporty performance
BARCELONA, February 28, 2013 - Applus+ IDIADA, a company specialized in engineering for the international automotive industry, has successfully completed the Volar-e project, an innovative prototype electric car with high performance, comparable to or even better than conventionally-powered sports cars.
Volar-e has been presented today at the Circuit de Catalunya during the F1 Test Days, in an act that has been attended by, among other authorities, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the European Commission, Sebastian Salvado, President of RACC, and Carles Grasas, CEO of Applus+ IDIADA.Applus+ Idiada Volar-e, 850, 28.02.2013Applus+ Idiada Volar-e, 850, 28.02.2013Applus+ Idiada Volar-e, 850, 28.02.2013
Applus+ IDIADA, a division of Applus+ specialized in the provision of design, engineering, testing and homologation services, was awarded the project by the European Commission in late 2012 in a tender in which companies across Europe took part. In just four months, the company has managed to meet and exceed the performance features required by the EC, among others:
Powertrain:
  • Provide maximum motor power and torque to the vehicle (1000 HP, 1000 Nm)
  • Achieve fast-charging (15-20 minutes)
Vehicle dynamics:
  • Regenerative braking system
  • Aerodynamics
  • Independent power control for all 4 motors, iTORQ original by Applus + IDIADA
In the words of Fernando Basabe, CEO of Applus+, "this project is recognition of the technological capacity of Applus + IDIADA in the field of engineering for the automotive industry". Carles Grasas, CEO of Applus+ IDIADA, stresses the technical challenge that the award of the project by the EC implies: "successful completion of the project in four months is the best demonstration of the capabilities of the company in engineering and project management”.
The project, which is co-funded by the European Commission, will allow the Applus+ prototype to become a flagship for the promotion of electric vehicles in European society. Users, the car industry, energy sector and government have a reference in this demonstrator of the great potential of electric vehicles.Applus+ Idiada Volar-e, 850, 28.02.2013Applus+ Idiada Volar-e, 850, 28.02.2013Applus+ Idiada Volar-e, 850, 28.02.2013

Applus+ IDIADA has in recent years made a significant commitment to acquiring electric vehicle know-how. The company’s Electric Vehicle Centre of Excellence, presented in December 2011, is as such one of the main centers of technological knowledge regarding the vehicles of the future.
Together with iShare, an innovative electric car concept designed for car sharing that the company presented in China at the end of last year, Applus+ IDIADA has developed other projects such as eBorn3, focusing on functionality and versatility in an electric passenger car; eTruck with the full electrification of a light commercial vehicle, and eScooter, an electric motorcycle developed by local partners.

Volvo P1800 Cyan

Cyan Racing, the reigning triple World Touring Car Champions, has revealed the Volvo P1800 Cyan, an interpretation of the iconic Volvo sports car from the sixties. The car is engineered by the team behind the first world title-winning Volvo race car and the Volvo C30 Polestar Concept Prototype.

”Our company was founded in 1996 to race Volvo cars in Sweden and the Volvo P1800 Cyan is closing the circle for us,” said Christian Dahl, CEO and founder of Cyan Racing.



“We claimed our first world title with Volvo in 2017 and have since then won two further world titles with two other manufacturers. The first world title was a milestone for us, and we felt it was a good time to reconnect with the past and to those before us racing Volvos. The first Volvo P1800 Cyan carries our blue and yellow racing colours to mark our heritage.”
