CALGARY — Exro Technologies Inc., a clean-technology company that develops new generation power-control electronics that expand the capabilities of electric motors and batteries, announces an innovation agreement with a Major Automaker, to mutually explore powertrain innovations in the Company’s electric passenger vehicles utilizing Exro’s advanced power electronics technology.

Innovation Agreement
The purpose of the collaboration is to determine the performance of Exro’s Coil Driver™ product for improving the continuous power and torque output of the powertrain in the OEM’s vehicles. Under the terms of the agreement, the Parties will work together to design a proof-of-concept Coil Driver™ plus motor system that would specifically fit into a defined electric machine housing. The proposed Coil Driver™ product will utilize the latest advancements in power electronics technology, paired with an optimized machine design, to deliver higher continuous power and torque output compared to conventional 3 phase inverters.

Under the agreement, the Parties anticipate completion of the proof-of-concept Coil Driver™ plus optimized motor design system by the end of Q4 2023, followed by delivery of functional prototypes to the OEM by the end of Q4 2024. The prototypes are then expected to enter a period of testing, including performance, durability, and reliability while determining next steps. Signing the agreement does not constitute any exclusivity to either of the Parties.
