With electric-vehicle introductions coming hard and fast between 2020-2023, OEMs and suppliers are anxious to build the correct vehicle for each market niche. Much of the ongoing differentiation in EV drivetrains is expected to come from traction motors and their associated transmissions. While single-speed transmissions have been the preferred initial thrust, several suppliers and third-party developers see multi-speed transmissions as offering significant potential for increased energy efficiency and driving range.
This 60-minute Technical Webinar from the editors of SAE International presents the latest thinking in EV transmission engineering and the vital testing and simulation that accompany these efforts.
An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
