GKN Driveline’s (Auburn Hills, MI) complete electric-drive system for plug-in hybrid vehicles will help automakers more easily incorporate eDrive systems into their vehicle lines and eliminates the integration of individual components from multiple suppliers. Tighter integration of electric drivelines improves system efficiency and gives automakers more packaging and assembly options, GKN claims. The new module integrates a water-cooled electric motor and inverter with a single-speed eAxle reduction gearbox. Generating a maximum 65 kW, the system can deliver up to 2000 N·m (1475 lb·ft) of torque to the rear wheels. The complete eDrive module measures 300-mm (12-in) high and 325-mm (13-in) wide and with a mass of 54 kg (119 lb), making it around 20 mm (0.79 in) narrower and 2.5 kg (5.5 lb) lighter than comparable systems. According to GKN, production starts in 2019 on a global platform from a European vehicle manufacturer. For more information, visit www.gkn.com/en/our-divisions/gkn-driveline/.
