Apollo Project EVO
The successor of the critically acclaimed Apollo IE hypercar, Apollo Project EVO is commissioned with a simple brief to deliver raw emotion without compromise. The dominant, star-shaped daytime running lights introduce a new fascia signature detail for Apollo Automobile brand. The rear design celebrates 6 points of light illumination to communicate power and speed. Three large circular exhaust pipes express the raw power of the vehicle from a dead-rear angle. A full suite of active aerodynamics includes a large deployable and adjustable rear spoiler, aero fins and triangular air-intakes that dominate the profile view of the vehicle. This pure-breed speed machine features an advanced carbon monocoque and a handling package that ensure raw power and emotional aesthetics are matched by peerless handling and driving dynamics. It is a dramatically sculpted piece of design that always continues to offer an intense and emotional visual experience.
Apollo EVision S
The EVision concept takes the best of the Apollo IE design and technical philosophy showcased in Apollo’s hypercars and overlays this into a more approachable and universal package for daily use. It has a four-seater setup of Apollo EVision S with a length of < 5m and a width of <2m gives a high usability even for families and a great and bold appearance on the street. It demonstrates Apollo’s trajectory towards new clean-air powertrains.
The Crate Powertrain Demonstrator
The Crate Powertrain, developed by Apollo Advanced Technologies (AAT) embodies AAT’s innovations that empower the transition to 800V systems for EVs. It features an 800V Dual Inverter specified with the latest generation Silicon Carbide switches, delivering high efficiency. An entirely new 800V Axial Flux E-Motor can be mounted within the chassis or in the wheels and presents a compact and elegant planetary gear transmission. This powertrain demonstrator presents a unique layout that gives OEM customers significant flexibility to integrate drivetrain to both new and existing vehicles and systems. Its dual-motor system replaces heavy and complex differential assembly.
SIM Race Module
The event also exhibits an avant-garde SIM Race Module featuring the Apollo IE hypercar in the Forza Horizon 5 racing game. Visitors are welcome to take the driving seat and complete a lap or two in this exhilarating car, regarded by many gamers as the best and ultimate racing engine in Forza.
