NEW SPICER ELECTRIFIED E-AXLES FOR HYBRIDS AND EVS
Dana Incorporated (NYSE: DAN) has introduced a new portfolio of integrated motor, control, and e-drive technologies for electric propulsion systems. The new Spicer Electrified products are designed to address each of the company’s end markets – light, commercial, and off-highway vehicles – and to complement its Long line of battery-cooling solutions.
Currently in production, the Spicer EV Drive for electric vans manages speed and torque from the e-motor to the wheels. Planned for launch in 2018, Dana’s new e-axles for electric transit buses and city delivery vehicles feature a fully integrated motor and gear box.
Dana is also working with automotive manufacturers to develop AWD e-axles that meet customer demand for AWD functionality paired with traditional front-wheel-drive hybrids.
