Specialists, such as AVL, BorgWarner, Diehl Metall, GETRAG and MAGNA, will provide an insight into the diverse range of transmission and drive technologies for conventional and alternative vehicles. New products in the area of conventional drives will be presented alongside trends in the development of hybrid and electric drive systems.
Improvements in performance of hybrid and electric vehicles
The major leaps forward in the development of hybrid and electric vehicles over the last few years are being demonstrated clearly by many exhibits at this year’s Transmission Expo. BorgWarner is presenting the new eAWD electric all-wheel drive system, which features the traction and stability advantages of an all-wheel drive system without an increase in vehicle weight or a loss in drive power, while also enabling a fuel saving of up to 20 per cent in comparison to standard mechanical all-wheel drive systems. Daimler AG is represented with their new generation of hybrid drives for rear-wheel-drive vehicles. A new li-ion module for hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as a new plastic housing module, is being presented by ElringKlinger AG. Schaeffler Technologies is demonstrating an electric vehicle featuring active electric differential with integrated torque vectoring functionality in its ACTIVeDRIVE test vehicle, while Bühler Motor is presenting an EC motor for start/stop applications.
