ZF announces new e-drive generation


“On this basis, we can optimally implement further individual customer requirements in e-vehicles of all segments.” “The great interest of manufacturers in our products in both the passenger car and commercial vehicle sectors is confirmed by our high order backlog in the high voltage business,” said e-mobility chief Stephan von Schuckmann. In addition, the design has very high structural rigidity, which enables superior noise behavior,” said Otmar Scharrer, head of development for electric drive technologies. Compared to common offset concepts, the new product reduces weight and installation space requirements without compromising efficiency, noise, and vibration. The announcement was made to UK media at ZF’s new hub in Shirley, near Birmingham, opened recently at a cost of GBP70m. The company emphasises ‘digital twins’ eliminating physical prototypes to bring new, fully tested, and productionised products to market more quickly.
