Annual competition honors outstanding design and engineering
in consumer technology products
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA – January 4, 2022 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – Damon Motors today announced that it has been named a CES® 2022 Innovation Awards Honoree. The company was honored in the Vehicle Intelligence and Transportation category for its proprietary HyperDrive™, the world’s first monocoque-constructed, 100 percent electric, multi-variant powertrain. Damon was selected for a CES Innovation Award from a record high number of over 1800 submissions.
“The HyperDrive is in an elite class of its own and boasts some incredible numbers,” said Jay Giraud, founder & CEO, Damon Motors. ”200 horsepower, 200 miles per hour, 200 mile range, 0-60 in three seconds, and virtually no maintenance. No other powertrain comes close. We have built the motorcycle of the future for today and are proud to be honored by CES for our innovation.”
Damon has rigorously focused on optimizing HyperDrive’s final form factor, which plays a crucial role in the motorcycle’s overall performance. The company’s focus on aerodynamic design, using extensive wind tunnel testing to reduce drag, enables Damon to deliver more speed, acceleration and range than its competitors. To further reduce weight, HyperDrive is engineered to act as a structural component of the motorcycle itself and serves as the nucleus upon which a wide range of future Damon models and submodels can be built.
The CES Innovation Awards program is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in 27 consumer technology product categories. Those with the highest rating receive the “Best of Innovation” distinction. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers, and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design.
Damon will showcase its HyperDrive technology with its flagship HyperSport and new HyperFighter models at CES 2022, January 5-7, 2022, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in booth CP-16. To see the Damon HyperSport in action, watch this video.
