Downsizing for performance
We aim to enhance performance and interior space by downsizing the drive systems in BEVs. The compact eAxle leverage technologies, a collaborative project with BluE Nexus, have been cultivated for hybrid vehicles (HEVs), including lubrication design and fluid analysis technologies, reduced PCU condenser capacity, and improved cooling performance. The motor is roughly 40% smaller than that of a hybrid, while the gear train and inverter are slimmed down by 53% and 58% respectively. These improvements lower the cargo area floor by 70 mm, freeing up 50 litres of additional interior space.
