GKN Driveline is exchanging hybrid technology from super hybrid cars, for example, the Porsche 918 Spyder and BMW i8 into little hybrid vehicles. The organization has built up an eAxle module that will empower C-segment hybrid vehicles to offer purchasers a plug-in hybrid choice.
The new eAxle is an advancement of the framework GKN intended for the Porsche 918 Spyder. The single-pace configuration minimizes weight to only 20.9kg while advancing effectiveness, establishment space and expenses for mass-market vehicle applications. The geartrain with a gear ratio of 12.5 gives up to 2000Nm torque and 65kW force in electric mode and adjusted wheel torques for all-wheel drive mode.
Improvement by GKN is moving the parity of force in hybrid cars from interior ignition towards electric drives. An ordinary C-segment plug-in hybrid could now have a motor yield of around 100kW, with a GKN eAxle supplying an extra 65kW of electrical force. The eAxle can enhance 0-100kph quickening times by a few seconds, give a useable electric range and decrease a vehicle’s CO2 emission rating to under 50g/km.
GKN has been spearheading the presentation of eAxle innovation since 2002, dispatching the business’ first high voltage eAxle applications with PSA Peugeot Citroen in 2010. The organization was granted Official Porsche Technology Partner status for its commitment to the plug-in hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder program.
