“From 2018, our electric cars will be equipped with asynchronous motors. We are convinced they offer higher efficiency levels than synchronous motors.”
Stefan Knirsch, Audi’s head of Research & Development, says that because there are asynchronous motors with a similar output as synchronous ones but with more rev, the manufacturer can promise a unique driving experience.
“Cadillac doesn’t have to be the technological leader for all of GM.”
Cadillac CEO Johan de Nysschen has no real ambition when it comes to electrification. He confirms that we won’t see an all-electric Caddy before 2020. The manufacture just recently dropped its ELR plug-in.
