GKN and Delta Electronics eDrive partnershipGKN Automotive (a leading supplier of electric drive, all-wheel drive and driveline technology and systems) and Delta Electronics Inc (a leading provider of power and thermal management solutions) have announced their collaboration on a joint development of next-generation integrated 3-in-1 eDrive systems (inverter, motor and transmission fully integrated) for power classes from 80 to 155kW. T

he joint development will see inverters supplied by Delta Electronics integrated with GKN Automotive’s eMotor and gearbox systems in a 3-in-1 solution.

Liam Butterworth, CEO of GKN Automotive (www.gknautomotive.com), said: “The eDrive market continues to accelerate, as manufacturers are required to meet increasingly stringent emissions regulations.

"Our collaboration with Delta represents a significant milestone in the expansion of our portfolio of scalable integrated 3-in-1 eDrive solutions and our capabilities in rapidly bringing new cost-competitive technologies to market.”

Simon Chang, COO of Delta Electronics, said: “Delta is dedicated to enabling low-carbon green transportation by providing EV powertrain solutions and power electronics products, including traction inverters, traction motors, on-board chargers, DC/DC converters and EV charging solutions.

"We are pleased to work with the leading company GKN Automotive to produce integrated eDrive units for the next generation of electric and hybrid vehicles.”

The new collaboration will centre on the development of two new integrated eDrive families for application across different torque classes for the next generation of hybrid and electric vehicles.

Within three years, the new 3-in-1 eDrive units will be available for a multitude of vehicle types, from A-segment city cars to D-segment executive cars and SUVs, supporting a range of torque outputs from 2,000Nm to 3,800Nm.

These solutions will cover a large proportion of the future eDrive market, which is projected to be worth more than £12 billion by 2030.
