Concepts and Technologies for Minimum Emissions and Maximum Efficiency
IAV is preparing the way for zero-emission driving – including an optimum powertrain and alternative drive systems. For all-electric cars, IAV has developed a modular electric drive unit for various powertrain configurations.
We will be presenting these solutions at the 26th Aachen Colloquium Automobile and Engine Technology on October 9-11:
The new generation of electric drive units from IAV makes it possible to create an all-electric car. The modular concept consists of an electric motor and a transmission with one to three speeds. The solution that we have developed provides high torque across a wide speed range, takes up little package space and can be mass-produced cost-effectively. The modular electric drive unit ensures high hill-climbing ability and, at the same time, maximum efficiency. It can also be used flexibly and is suitable for various powertrain configurations, such as battery-powered and fuel cell vehicles. (...) More
In order to meet all the different development targets (CO2 emissions, performance, ride comfort, weight, costs etc.) for 2025 and 2030, OEMs are looking for the most sustainable scenarios in view of the trade-off between fleet consumption, modular systems and costs. The powertrain plays a pivotal role in this search. Fundamental decisions are hugely important and extremely difficult to rectify at a later stage. The targets, requirements and framework conditions are so complex that it is no longer enough to simply optimize the powertrain components using conventional development methods. This is why we are supporting our customers with IAV powertrain synthesis. (...) More
CNG-fueled vehicles are real climate protectors. Operating on CNG (compressed natural gas), they emit around twenty percent less CO2 than a comparable gasoline engine vehicle. If the gas comes from renewable sources, a reduction of 80 percent is even possible. Added to this are the lower energy taxes on natural gas, making the vehicles attractive for their users from an economic point of view as well. (...) More
