Passenger cars and light commercial vehicles with an electric powertrain are the great white hope of future mobility. This is clearly reflected in the vehicle registration figures. To sustain this growth, vehicle manufacturers offer a continually growing choice of electrified models globally. Vitesco Technologies is among the pioneering suppliers in this field with its integrated axle drive (EMR3) – which has received several awards from independent juries. This highly integrated and optimized unit comprising electric motor, power electronics and reducer, has set standards in terms of low weight, small dimensions and high performance. Plus, the integrated axle drive is easily and economically integrated into a vehicle. Consistent optimization at detail level makes it possible to use the next generation electric drive (EMR4) for vehicles of very different types which will benefit from its even higher energy efficiency and lower cost. The oncoming drive’s level of scalability and the standardization of components and interfaces will make this unit the product of choice for electric vehicles.
