Oerlikon and Continental to cooperate on motor and transmission systems for hybrid and electric vehicles

Swiss high-tech industrial group Oerlikon and international automotive supplier Continental have entered into an agreement to cooperate on the development and marketing of integrated motor and transmission systems for hybrid and electric vehicles.
The aim of this collaboration is to further improve the efficiency of electrified powertrains through integrated optimization of both the electric motor and the transmission. “Electric drive is a field where integrated system-level optimization is the only way to offer significantly improved customer benefits,” said Ralf Schmid, head of research and development at the Continental powertrain division's hybrid electric vehicle business unit in Berlin. “
Oerlikon will contribute its know-how in the development, production and design of high-performance transmissions, while Continental's powertrain division will bring to the table its expertise in the development of conventional, hybrid and all-electric passenger car powertrains. Together, these two technology companies will follow an integrated systems-based approach that they hope will deliver “significantly improved customer benefits”. The agreement covers both development and marketing of these integrated motor and transmission systems. Which of the two partners assumes the role of systems supplier for a given project will be decided on a case-by-case basis.
