Automotive and industrial supplier Schaeffler is expanding its range of powertrain electrification solutions for commercial vehicles, making another key contribution to meeting climate and sustainability targets amid a global tightening of pollution and CO2 restrictions. Schaeffler has secured a volume production order to supply electric motors to a key manufacturer in the commercial vehicle sector, starting in 2023. The 800 V motor, used in pairs in battery-powered vehicles, delivers a maximum continuous output of 180 kW and generates a maximum torque of 950 Nm. It also features rod wave winding technology, an innovation that makes installation less complex and increases power density. The motor plays an important role in the electrification of commercial vehicles and thus contributes to a marked reduction in CO2 emissions.
Schaeffler has also secured a volume production order for hybrid modules. Featuring the highly efficient P1 architecture, these modules enable the recovery of braking energy. The energy recovered is then used to power on-board systems, especially new exhaust gas treatment systems, thereby helping vehicle fleets to meet NOx and CO2 reduction targets. The start of production is scheduled for 2024.
