Range Extender By Star Engines - JERR.E Model

With the advent of electric vehicles, a rather profound issue has risen along the way:  range anxiety. The fear of loosing your energy while in some god forsaken place, isn’t something one should take lightly. There have been plenty of solutions proposed, but until now, the question hasn’t been answered in a way that warrants freedom, ease of use and safety all in one rather convenient package.

Star Engines is an innovative start-up that revolutionizes the combustion engine. Inspired by the Wankel engine, the engineers of Star Engine completely redesigned the combustion engine basics. This results in a – patented – small size, low weight 3D rotary engine with an unequaled performance. The principle opens a world of applications. Star Engines is open to explore partnership and dealership opportunities.

The solution to range anxiety is a small product that allows you to charge your vehicle with ease. Called the JERR.E it resembles a gas can and it is simple to use: this transportable generator allows you to utilize it’s new technology to generate electricity to power your vehicle.It comes with an internal combustion engine as the source of power, so it can be readily used where ever you find a gas station. Yes, a bit odd to be dependent on that source of power. On the other hand, this is the most elegant solution we’ve encountered thus far.

While the exact specifications (rate of charging, fuel consumption etc.) has remained unknown, we’ll surely be getting that information as we’ve requested that from the company itself. The JERR.E has been debuted thanks to a BMW i8 that is the car they are using to demonstrate the charging aspect of this product. Showcased in a beautiful photoshoot done by Gijs Speirings, this will show you how well the product is designed and how profoundly perfect it fits alongside such a futuristic designed vehicle.

    • The product discussed, pretty much emphasizes the idea of charging an electric only vehicle. The BMW i8 does have a petrol engine, but the idea is based on EV in reality.
