Hybridisation of manual transmissions: Schaeffler presented its E-Clutch transmission system. It enables fuel saving while “sailing” or driving electrically and can thus be integrated into vehicles with manual transmissions. The system works on three levels of automation that go from the help of an actuator to purely Electronic Clutch Management (ECM).
Inductive cooperation: Korean utility firm Korea Electric Power Corp. (KEPCO) and wireless carrier SK Telecom Co. join forces to push wireless EV charging technology. The same goes for “Vehicle to Infrastructure” (V2I) systems that connect cars with the road and conditions around them.
New Mission: Electric motorcycle brand Mission Electric has been taken over by Vayon and will keep its focus on electric drivetrain and EV component development. Vayon will also provide further testing capabilities for the Mission Motor Company, including for high voltage batteries and climate chambers.
LG Chem goes maritime: Corvus Energy announced a multi-year agreement with LG Chem to supply Li-ion cells for its hybrid and electric maritime ESS. They will power passenger and commercial vessels, both hybridised or fully electric.
