Schaeffler starts mass production of electric motors for hybrids and EVs

Schaeffler, a manufacturer of electric drivetrain technology, will begin mass production of hybrid modules, hybrid drive units and all-electric axle transmissions. 

Along with a series of mass production orders for electric motors in the passenger car sector, Schaeffler has recently entered the heavy-duty applications segment for commercial vehicles. The company has announced a mass production order for electric motors featuring “wave winding” technology, which is designed to provide high power density and ease of assembly.

Starting in 2024, Schaeffler will deliver an entire drive unit comprising two electric motors and transmission with integrated power electronics. The company says the system power rating of 120 kW offers high performance with low fuel consumption.
