Rising gas prices, pollution and legislation are leading drivers to look for alternatives to gas-powered vehicles but existing designs in light electric vehicle (LEVs) designs, such as scooters, need to achieve a substantial boost in capabilities and performance to truly rev up consumer demand.

The NuVinci® CVP gives LEVs a boost in real-world performance that makes them genuinely competitive with gas-powered vehicles.  It offers a superior riding and ownership experience with smooth, seamless shifting over an infinite number of ratios within its range.  It dramatically improves acceleration, hill climbing and top-end speed while extending range and preserving battery and motor life.

Best of all, NuVinci CVP technology offers vehicle designers the ability to create new LEV capabilities and performance never before possible.  Opening the door to wider markets and increased demand – and to a cleaner world.

  • Extended vehicle range
  • Longer battery and motor life
  • Compact, durable packaging
  • Manual or automatic control

How it Works

The NuVinci CVP delivers a totally unique riding experience. It’s far smoother than conventional fixed gear transmissions because it has no gears.  Instead, the NuVinci CVP uses a set of rotating spheres to transfer torque from the electric motor to the toad.  Tilting the spheres changes their contact diameters, permitting an infinite progression of speed ratios -- without the slips and jerks of rubber-belt CVTs or geared transmissions.

NuVinci technology allows the LEV’s motor to run more efficiently and reduces battery-sapping current spikes.  This extends battery life and vehicle range while its infinite range of ratios dramatically improves overall performance.  Coupled with an efficient motor, an intelligent shifter and motor controller and an advanced battery, NuVinci technology provides the technical canvas to design an entirely new generation of high performance LEVs and scooters.
