Mission Motors receives CEC grant to develop advanced on-board vehicle charger

We are proud to announce that the California Energy Commission (CEC) has awarded Mission Motors a $94,000 grant to develop a lightweight on-board charger for electric vehicles. The grant is an Energy Innovation Small Grant (EISG), a part of the Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) program. Power electronics in motor control and battery charging are key to any electric powertrain system. Mission is dedicated to making these components smaller, lighter, more intelligent and more efficient. The CEC grant award will help Mission achieve these goals even more effectively. We applaud California’s support in building a clean transportation future and congratulate our fellow award winners. This marks the second CEC grant awarded for Mission Motors. The first grant, awarded in November of 2010, was an investor-matched $505,000 to support the commercialization of Mission’s cutting-edge powertrain technology.
