U POWER Tech, a smart electric vehicle (EV) technology company, made its debut at CES 2024 this week, presenting its UP Super Board — a skateboard chassis that serves as a vehicle foundation for automakers to accelerate EV development.
This plug-and-play technology allows automakers to design more customized upper bodies (for sedans, pick-ups, SUVs, and vans), slashing the development time by at least six months, and ultimately reducing costs and time-to-market for EVs.
The UP Super Board integrates core capabilities of advanced EVs, including electric propulsion, suspension, steering, thermal management, and Level 2+ advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS).
“We are pushing the boundary beyond the industry’s current chassis capabilities. With the UP Super Board and our business model that integrates the most comprehensive and most competitive global EV supply chain, we are empowering clients to develop electric vehicles for local markets in a shorter time with lower investment,” said Paul Li, U POWER founder and CEO.
U POWER announced the first deliveries of UP Super Boards to Olympian Motors, a new-gen EV company headquartered in New York. Olympian Motors is committed to delivering the first batch of EVs to customers in New York, California, and Florida in 2024, pursuing a comprehensive nationwide strategy to scale up to 100,000 EV shipments by 2027.
“By seamlessly integrating the UP Super Board with Olympian’s modular EV architecture, we anticipate game-changing time and capital savings in our manufacturing process,” said Eren Alan Canarslan, founder and CEO of Olympian Motors.
