Corepower USA is now collaborating with the Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence at The Ohio State University

Posted: July 26, 2016

Corepower USA, a manufacturer of electric plug-in vehicles, has recently partnered with the Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence at The Ohio State University. Corepower USA electric vehicles run on 100% electricity and do not require gasoline or other fossil fuel. The most obvious benefit of owning an electric car is the assurance that one will never be affected by fluctuating fuel costs at the pump.

Corepower USA has imported three electric vehicle models: the SEER EV-1 (2-door coupe), the SEER EV-2 (mid-size 4-door) and the EV-3 (full-sized 4-door crossover). Currently at the CDME, they await an engineering trade analysis from our expert team of engineers. Corepower USA is working with the CDME to certify the electric vehicles with the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)—the first step in producing these vehicles in the United States. Corepower USA expects to bring these vehicles into production at below current market prices.

Along with input from the Transportation Research Center (TRC), the CDME will provide an engineering trade analysis on the vehicles to determine the components that could or must be replaced to make the vehicles road worthy in the United States as well as ensuring at least 51% of all components are American made.
