Schaeffler scores contracts for commercial EV motors

Schaeffler has announced new series orders for electric motors and hybrid modules for use in trucks. One series order relates to the supply of electric motors from 2023 for an unnamed commercial vehicle supplier. Schaeffler can book another major order in the field of hybrid modules.

“The commercial vehicle sector is facing major challenges,” says Matthias Zink, Member of the Executive Board for Automotive Technologies at Schaeffler AG. “We are bringing our considerable systems expertise in the field of commercial vehicles for shaping how the world moves. The fact that we won two major contracts recently shows that we are on track to being a preferred technology partner for our customers in this sector.”

One series order relates to the supply of electric motors from 2023 for an unnamed commercial vehicle manufacturer. The 800-volt motor that is used in battery-powered vehicles in two versions, delivers a maximum continuous output of 180 kW and a maximum torque of 950 Nm. The electric motor uses rod-shaft winding technology which is designed to reduce assembly complexity and increase power density.

Schaeffler has booked another major order from a similarly unnamed customer in the field of hybrid modules. This involves the system in P1 arrangement. The start of series production is planned for 2024.

Schaeffler only just announced the start of series production for this year at the end of January when it became clear that the supplier has its eye on the truck sector as well as the passenger car sector. Schaeffler wants to position itself as an all-rounder in the electric mobility supply market. Now the German company’s range extends from components to complete drive systems, with an offer across all degrees of electrification.

Dr Jochen Schröder, President of the E-Mobility business division, says: “We have positioned our electric mobility business very effectively. Schaeffler offers solutions for all powertrain electrification options, from 48 V hybrid to plug-in hybrid to full electric. All development and production of our components and systems can take place in-house, which puts us in an ideal position to partner our customers in these diverse markets.”
