What Honda engineers came up with for a KERS motor is sweet.

Link

Overview:
~60 kw
~7.7 kg
~10cm x ~20cm
Peak ~99% efficient Assist , ~93% efficient Regen.
13,000 to 21,000 RPMs

Boy would that kind of electric motor performance tech be nice to filter down to Honda HEVs , PHEVs, and EVs ... not holding my breath to see this outside of Formular One any time soon ... but still ... it looks sweet.

:D

Interesting

That article was about the 2009 Honda F1 car - the information must have been from 2008!
~3 years already :D

I expect over time there will continue to be a push to move to the lighter and smaller ... Honda has already been doing this trend in thier IMA systems every now and then , squeezing into a bit less space and / or a bit less weight.

Some of the things they did in this project will probably slowly begin to show up here and there in HEVs, PHEVs, and EVs... not right away ... but little bits here and there from model revision to revision.

Considering it is already ~3 year old tech.
~7.8 kw / kg is very good power per unit weight.
~38 kw / L is very good power per unit volume.
