LiveWire Partners With Mitsubishi Electric

Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. and its Semiconductor and Device Division (SDD) are collaborating with LiveWire EV, LLC to provide advanced power semiconductor modules for LiveWire's S2 product line.

Mitsubishi Electric and LiveWire collaborate to achieve optimal performance on their S2 Del Mar platform - including possible 0-60 acceleration in three seconds.

LiveWire's S2 Del Mar and S2 Del Mar LE motorcycles are the first in the United States to incorporate advanced electric-power technology from Mitsubishi that is said to optimize the performance - with the possibility of accelerating from 0-60 miles per hour in three seconds.

"The all-electric experience that Mitsubishi Electric helps enable is transformative, providing riders with a positive connection to the world around them while riding, free of heat, vibration and noise," said Vance Strader, Chief Technical Officer for LiveWire. 

Mitsubishi Electric's J1 series power semiconductor modules are compact, lightweight and power-dense silicon-based modules. They are currently used in the automotive industry and are also suitable for various types of electric vehicles.

"The J1 series contributes significantly to the S2 Del Mar's impressive performance metrics, including an electric motor torque of 194 ft-lb, an engine with 84 horsepower, the capability to reach a level 2 charge in 78 minutes, and a city range of 113 miles.
