GKN accelerating 800V eDrive tech
GKN Automotive says it’s accelerating work on subsequent era 800V drive techniques in response to rising EV demand.
GKN Automotive is accelerating its growth of subsequent era eDrive applied sciences in response to the quickly rising world demand for electrified automobiles.
Future eDrive techniques, utilising 800V applied sciences, are already at superior levels of growth and being examined in real-world circumstances. GKN says it’s working with the world’s main automotive producers to make these superior eDrive techniques a manufacturing actuality.
Future eDrive applied sciences, utilizing 800V expertise, promise advantages for EV homeowners together with quicker charging instances and superior efficiency. The higher techniques efficiencies they create may also result in an elevated driving vary – presently a key impediment for customers eager to make the change to a battery electrical automotive. Efficiencies might additionally result in automotive makers opting to make use of smaller batteries, lowering car price, complexity, and weight.
Liam Butterworth, CEO GKN Automotive mentioned: “World demand for EVs is accelerating quick and now could be the right time for GKN Automotive to underpin its management in eDrive techniques by way of next-generation applied sciences.
“These high-tech 800V techniques will create quicker charging automobiles with higher battery vary, improved driving efficiency and even higher efficiencies. GKN Automotive intends to proceed delivering an more and more electrified future”
GKN says its fast growth of subsequent era eDrive techniques is being enhanced by way of working in Method E as a companion to Jaguar Racing. It says fixed testing to enhance effectivity, efficiency and lengthening the vary of batteries within the ultra-competitive world of electrical motorsport creates a direct hyperlink from race to street.
Chopping-edge developments presently being developed for Jaguar Racing will seemingly be out there on near-future street automobiles in simply three years, GKN says.
