Getting to Electric: New Designs and Processes for EV Powertrains

Smaller, cheaper, better are the keys to the next generation of electrified powertrain components. Limited driving ranges—and the concurrent range anxiety—make all-electric driving unfeasible for some car owners, while the additional cost for hybrid vehicles is a market barrier.

At the same time, the reversed torque flow during the energy recuperation phase of electric driving puts additional strain on drivetrain components.

Optimizing the efficiency of every component and/or reducing its weight is critical, while reducing costs remains essential. Continue reading
