RPE planning to attend 5th Annual Michigan EV Show

With the annual Michigan Electric Vehicle Show and Rally just a couple of months away, the team at Red Point Engineering (RPE) is already busy gearing up for the event.

Based in Auburn Hills, RPE is an advanced engineering company with significant expertise in powertrain integration and development.  Additionally, the company has relevant experience in electric vehicle conversions – and plans to showcase their award-winning proof-of-concept – a Porsche Boxster that has been converted to 100% Electric Vehicle.

The 5th Annual “must-attend” event – to be held at School Craft College, in Livonia, MI. on June 8, 2013- offers an unparalleled opportunity speak to industry experts who have converted their gas-powered vehicles to battery electric drive or to hybrid owners who have converted to plug-in recharging.

Norbert Kedzierski, the President of RPE, will not only offer attendees the rare opportunity to view and to drive his award-winning Boxster, but to answer any questions regarding the company’s conversion components and services. The company also plans to unveil its “turn-key” solution for 100% vehicle conversions.  These conversion kits offer a complete system that includes all of the components needed to convert a vehicle equipped with an internal combustion engine to electric – which is ideal for DIY’s.

The company plans to ship these “turn-key” kits to the customer on the pallet – allowing them to complete the electric vehicle conversion themselves. Red Point Engineering’s cutting edge design and expertise in electric vehicle technology and vehicle system integration allows the company to deliver advancements to the electric vehicle industry and meet most challenging powertrain needs.

The 5th annual event offers the opportunity for attendees to exchange information and best practice solutions, and meet with other enthusiasts in electric vehicle market.

The start-up company showcased conversion of another Porsche Boxter to 100% Electric Vehicle.  Red Point Engineering boasts significant expertise in Electric Vehicle Conversions and their last year’s electric sports coupe was the recipient of two prestigious awards, (one People’s Choice and one for Best Conversion EV) at the Michigan Electric Auto Association EV show last summer.

EVCCON 2012 Day 4 – Our Adventure in Picturesque Cape Girardeau

Written by rpengineering on . Posted in Events, News

The final day, day 4’s conferences included: Driving the EV Business – panel Discussion with George Hamstra, Jack Rickard & Michael Bream and Lithium Battery Theory and Manufacture by  Jack Rickard.

Events scheduled for the afternoon: Electric Car Show in Capaha Park  (open to the public) and Electric Car Parade.

Finally the weather in Cape Girardeau worked with us, as it was a gorgeous day for a picnic and music in the park. Cape Girardeau is known for its nature, having 21 parks throughout the little bustling city of 100,000. Thanks to the weather and the buzz surrounding the event, a large amount of locals arrived just in time to view the show, to see the impressive electric cars and to ask questions about the EV industry and what the future holds for electric vehicles.

After the car show was over, we had a beautiful parade through Cape Girardeau, which Nathan, one of the EVCCON attendees called the “official funeral for gasoline fueled cars.”

Then, at 7 PM, it was finally time for the formal wine dinner at The Show-Me Center Arena.  Richard, who organized a lot of the logistics around EVCCON and who truly did an amazing job, announced the winners of the event competitions for multiple categories, from the best paint job to the fastest EV. Organizers even added in some humorous categories, to including the most improved EV and the slowest EV award.

Recipients of the awards, from all over the EV industry, gave great speeches. Here are some highlights of the speech of one of the winners:

–  “Don’t settle for cheap parts, you will end up paying double in the long run. I went through this and I know.”

–  “For your EV conversion project, go for quality vendors, and the vendors present at EVCCON are the highest quality vendors you will find, to get quality results. The vendors that are present here today offer all that anyone will need for a quality EV conversion project.”

 

Those Vendors included:

  • EVnetics – controllers
  • NetGain – electric motors
  • Red Point Engineering – Conversion hardware (custom conversion kits: engine mounts, adapter plates and hubs) and  consulting
  • RechargeCar

We leave this year’s EVCCON extremely impressed with the quality of the people that both attended and organized the event, and with how well the event was put together. We are already looking forward to EVCCON 2013!

Thank you for reading!
