A look at the current registrations of hybrid and electric cars clearly shows that these vehicle categories are gaining essentially more importance worldwide. GKN supports this growth with a broad portfolio of electrical transmissions and axles, and advances the development of increasingly powerful and efficient driving units. Now, with the development of the GKN eTWINSTER, another fantastic development stage has been achieved in electric drive systems, significantly improving the drive performance of hybrid vehicles.
