Technology announced a step forward on its 800 V technology roadmap. The
company has received an order for development and production of 800 V electric
traction motor technology in China.
The motor fits
to the overall EMR4 platform, which was introduced at the 13 th Transmission
Symposium in China on July 8, 2021. Stator and rotor will be part of a leading
Chinese OEM’s electric vehicle powertrain platform. Vitesco Technologies will
manufacture this technology at its Tianjin site on a new line. The base
development of the 8-layer hairpin stator was a global project. The SOP for the
800 V motor technology is scheduled for 2023.
Executive Vice President, Electrification Technology business unit, Vitesco
Technologies, said that, they are proud to contribute to the impressive growth
of Chinese customers by delivering technology for an 800 V platform. He added
that, they are bringing their proven 800 V expertise and also long-standing
hairpin manufacturing know-how to this project.
As the numbers
of New Energy Vehicle (NEVs) are surging, it becomes more important for each EV
manufacturer to differentiate its products in the market. The shift to 800 V
technology is part of this process because it offers faster charging, a higher
overall energy efficiency and attractive driving performance.
Technologies is a leading international developer and manufacturer
of modern drive technologies for sustainable mobility. With intelligent system
solutions and components for electric, hybrid and combustion drive trains,
Vitesco Technologies makes mobility clean, efficient and affordable.
