Magna’s etelligentDrive methods shall be on show at CES 2018. The corporate’s e1 idea car shall be used to reveal completely different electric-drive (e-drive) ideas and methods, in addition to reveal Magna’s car integration capabilities. The e1 system consists of 1 extremely built-in e-drive system on the entrance axle and one on the rear axle with two electrical motors (e-motors).
Magna says the demo automobile achieves superior longitudinal and lateral dynamics mixed with glorious car stability for extra security. Every e-drive system within the demo car makes use of 3x 140-kilowatt AC induction motors, including as much as an total efficiency of 420-kilowatt peak (560 hp)
The Tesla Mannequin S based mostly e1 idea car demonstrates improved stability and dealing with with digital torque vectoring (eTV). The powertrain options an built-in eDrive 140 kW peak AC induction on the entrance axle whereas the rear axle has an built-in eDrive with 2 x 140 kW AC induction motors linked to a summation gearbox and axle lock clutch operated by the eTV management system to supply torque vectoring.
Triple electrical motor all-wheel-drive powertrains providing dynamic yaw management by way of torque vectoring characterize the following era in excessive efficiency EVs with Honda, Audi, Mitsubishi and most lately Tesla’s 2020 Roadster all both in manufacturing (Honda NSX, RLX SH-AWD) or quickly to be. The final word in torque vectoring requires a quad electrical motor AWD powertrain however right now the one OEM identified to be contemplating such a system for quantity manufacturing is Honda with their subsequent era NSX due in 2023.
Magna is chargeable for offering the e-motor, digital management module/inverter and the transmission for the Ford Focus BEV and Magna has equipped Volvo with the electrified rear axle drive system (eRAD) featured on the Volvo V60 and S60 plug-in hybrid fashions. Magna’s eRAD system gives a number of hybrid driving modes whereas additionally including electrical all-wheel-drive functionality.
Extra lately, the corporate introduced a three way partnership partnership with Hasco in China to provide a excessive quantity e-drive system for a German automaker.
