The next step change for electric vehicles, the compact eAxle, is poised to add appeal to BEVs thanks to direct cooling and multiple speeds.
Bringing together electric motors, power electronics, reduction gearing and differentials in a compact eAxle saves space, improves efficiency and increases vehicle range but a major challenge for any eMotor is adequate cooling. Cooling technology is therefore evolving fast, in parallel to eAxle development, and the key to unlocking the full potential resides within the lubricant used.
Read our article which explores the new demands of the lubricant to facilitate for this new eAxle technology.
