The UK-based EV startup Watt Electric Vehicle Company (WEVC) has recently unveiled a new lightweight modular EV architecture titled PACES. WEVC presents PACES as a versatile bonded aluminium platform easily adapted to various sizes and shapes for low-volume passenger EVs.

The platform accommodates FWD, RWD, and AWD powertrain configurations, employing an innovative assembly method called FlexTech. This technique interlocks and bonds flat, laser-cut pieces, avoiding the use of complex and costly corner castings typically found in large-volume aluminium skateboard platforms.

About PACES

This new lightweight modular EV architecture is designed to support a variety of low-to-medium-volume vehicle designs, including sports coupes, off-road buggies, and rideshare vehicles. Committed to sustainability, WEVC builds its electric vehicles from the ground up using recyclable materials and eco-friendly processes.

This cutting-edge, modular platform has been designed explicitly for low-volume manufacture, a blank sheet of paper providing the best possible structural and dynamic starting point for almost any future high-performance EV, whether a featherweight rear-drive roadster, luxurious coupe or off-road buggy. It also comes fully supported by our leading UK-based EV technology supply chain and, of course, WEVC's in-house design, engineering and manufacturing capabilities," said WEVC CEO Neil Yates.

Commitment to sustainability

WEVC's commitment to sustainability is not just a short-term strategy. It's a long-term vision that began with their flagship model, the eCV1 van. By aiming to deliver both cost and CO2 savings over the entire lifecycle of its commercial EVs, which are expected to last over 20 years, significantly longer than the average 5-7 year lifespan of conventional vehicles, WEVC is setting a new standard for the industry and ensuring its long-term viability and profitability.

Through this sustainable design process, WEVC aspires to achieve a closed-loop production system in the future. In addition to the upcoming eCV1 vans, WEVC has introduced a new platform architecture. This innovative architecture aims to facilitate easier electrification for other OEMs and serve as a foundation for WEVC's branded models.

“We are experiencing surging global demand from customers keen to launch bespoke electric passenger vehicles – and our unique, proprietary offering enables brands to make the EV transition quickly, cost-effectively and with optimized technology, resulting in a product tailored exactly to their needs,” added Neil Yates.
