The TM4 Motive electric powertrain from TM4 features permanent-magnet technology to ensure good performance over a range of speeds while providing high power. The motor's approximately 1.3 kW/kg (0.59 kW/lb) power density offers package efficiency and materials benefits. Because 99% of its electronic components are automotive-certified, compliance with current industry best practices is ensured through the entire development cycle, according to TM4. The system, which includes power electronics, is built to endure real-world road conditions and allows for rapid integration and short time to market. As the firm’s first generic product intended for off-the-shelf applications, the powertrain will enable OEMs to shorten electric vehicle development time and minimize cost, claims the company.
