Nexteer Expands Driveline Portfolio for Electric Vehicles
AUBURN HILLS, Mich., March 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Nexteer Automotive, a leader in intuitive motion control, continues expanding its Driveline portfolio with new Halfshaft technologies that are tailored to meet the unique demands of electric vehicles (EVs).
Nexteer's Halfshaft technologies solve EV challenges by enhancing durability and efficiency while optimizing noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) performance and low mass.
Unlike internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, EV architectures utilize Electric Drive Units (EDUs) integrated into the front axle for front wheel drive (FWD), the rear axle for rear wheel drive (RWD) or both for all wheel drive operation (AWD). While ICE vehicles often used a variety of Driveline technologies, EVs rely on Halfshafts for the critical task of transmitting torque from the EDU's to the wheels.
"The global automotive industry's commitment to electrification continues to increase, and Nexteer's Driveline innovations help overcome automakers' EV challenges so they can create comfortable and durable electric vehicles to achieve consumer preferences across global markets," said Robin Milavec, Senior Vice President, Executive Board Director, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Chief Strategy Officer (CSO), Nexteer Automotive. "Our vast experience with Driveline and our commitment to relentless innovation make Nexteer a preferred technology partner as OEM customers work to meet the unique needs of EVs."
Nexteer's Driveline technologies include:
"Nexteer's portfolio of Halfshaft technologies are essential to transferring and controlling power from an EV's Drive Unit to its wheels – providing a smooth ride, increasing control and limiting disturbances for drivers and passengers. We are proud to support automakers as they drive toward a more electric future," said Milavec.
