GKN Automotive and Delta Electronics have announced a joint development project that will enable the rapid advancement of three-in-one e-drive technology.
The collaboration will center on the development of two integrated e-drive families for application across different torque classes for the next generation of hybrid and electric vehicles.
The joint development of advanced e-drive technology will see inverters supplied by Delta Electronics and integrated with GKN Automotive’s e-motor and gearbox systems in a three-in-one solution.
Further aligning the two companies is a dedication to systems weight and packaging volume reduction, as well as a focus on simplifying OEM assembly processes for easier and better-quality component installations.
Liam Butterworth, CEO at GKN Automotive, said, “The e-drive market continues to accelerate as manufacturers are required to meet increasingly stringent emissions regulations demanding technological progression and speed.
“Our collaboration with Delta represents a significant milestone in the expansion of our portfolio of scalable, integrated three-in-one e-drive solutions and our capabilities in rapidly bringing new cost competitive technologies to market.”
