At the heart of the KENGURU
is the unique, patented KLD oneDRIVE™
Efficient. Simple. Remarkable.
The oneDRIVE™ propulsion and generation system is composed of integrated components that are specifically designed for each other and optimized for peak performance and efficiency. KLD's system efficiency provides up to 2x more range than comparable systems. The oneDRIVE™ eliminates the need for a transmission and is one of the most advanced and innovative systems ever conceived.
Let's take a closer look:
KLD's inventive design and innovative use of advanced materials has reduced magnetic losses throughout the motor’s operating range. The high-torque low-rpm direct drive architecture eliminates pesky driveline losses. These attributes together create one of the most efficient drive systems in its class today.
At the heart of efficiency is simplicity. Unlike modern internal combustion engines with a multitude of moving parts, the KLD oneDRIVE™ system is elegantly simple and involves only one moving part, which is housed on the wheel. Despite its simplicity, the system is designed for use in a variety of applications like the KENGURU and is a turnkey solution for complete propulsion and generation system around the world.
With Samsung as a strategic partner, oneDRIVE™ features one of the safest, highest performing energy storage solutions available. Multi-point thermal monitoring and short circuit protection, low system voltage, and our ‘ASK’ power system establish the pack technology as a benchmark for safety and make the KENGURU one of the safest transporter designs on the market.
Optimized for peak performance, KLD's oneDRIVE™ was specifically engineered with the goal of creating the most cost-effective electric propulsion and generation system. KLD uses thin film materials that can achieve over 1500 Hz. The increased frequency and reduced voltage allows the KLD system to adapt to all performance needs. And in the KENGURU it shows, with immediate on-tap acceleration.
Serviceable & Upgradeable
Using the KLD patented stator block technology, power can be upgraded incrementally by adding stator blocks to the motor. This flexibility allows manufacturers to serve different market segments and offers consumers the ability to upgrade to a more powerful system in the future. Utilization of the same components across multiple product offerings reduces parts inventories and simplifies servicing - even in the field.
Durable & Maintenance-Free
No gears, clutches, spark plugs, filters, belts, oil or tune-ups means the KLD oneDRIVE™ and the KENGURU are free of any regular maintenance often required by conventional drive systems. Rugged engineering and simple intuitive design yields a system that has incredible longevity and durability. The KLD oneDRIVE™ is even capable of performing in extreme conditions, including heat, cold, torrential rainfall, dust and sand storms.
Unique & Patented Design
Converting an idea from pure science into a viable commercial endeavor has led to a comprehensive intellectual property portfolio and a culture of innovation driven to solve critical global issues. A dedicated team of PhD.’s, engineers, and visionaries has made the KLD oneDRIVE™ system a commercially viable and intelligent product designed to change the way the marketplace envisions efficiency. KLD's cutting-edge technology demonstrates the value in creating thoughtful solutions to the world’s toughest challenges.
KLD has discovered an optimal system balance that allows for the elimination of other drive system components such as the transmission and differential, which prevents excessive power loss and extra weight. This ground-up engineering approach makes vehicle weight and power consumption as low as possible to save on battery cost. These adjusted metrics have made the KLD oneDRIVE™ system one of the most cost effective electric propulsion and generation systems on the market today, and a perfect match for the KENGURU.
