Flexible 48-V Electrification with an Optimum Cost-benefit Ratio
- 13 Downloads
The development of innovative solutions for future vehicle drivetrains poses a major challenge to the automotive sector. Mahle is rising to this challenge and has developed a modular construction system for an affordable and high-performance 48-V drive system with 30 kW of mechanical power. This system can not only be used as a single source of electric power in compact city cars, but also as a hybrid stage in larger vehicles.
Call for new vehicle and drivetrain concepts
The automotive sector faces great challenges: Since legal air pollutant limits are being regularly exceeded, vehicles with purely conventional combustion engines will increasingly be denied entrance into inner cities. In parallel, laws and regulations demand a further reduction of CO2 emissions. In Europe, for instance, a decision by EU environment ministers requires that new vehicles emit 37.5 % less CO2in 2030 than in 2021. To fulfill these legal requirements, solutions must be found that maintain both comfort and...
