Elaphe in-wheel motors will provide the propulsion in HFM’s Motionboard, an adaptable autonomous electric vehicle platform. According to the company, HFM’s scalable and modular Motionboard platform allows adapting the vehicle built on top of the platform to its current needs, both in terms of length and width as well as with regard to the battery capacity, making it modular and widely applicable. It also meets the requirements for homologation in Europe as an M1 class vehicle (vehicles for passenger transport with a maximum of eight seats plus the driver).
