NEW DRIVETRAIN FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES

The Motion Control and Industrial Applications Centre (MCIA UPC) is designing and developing a new drivetrain for high-performance electric vehicles for urban mobility and municipal services. The drivetrain achieves the electrical and electronic integration of all the components required for electric traction in a compact, low-cost powertrain that is fault tolerant and highly efficient. The project is being carried out through a consortium of Spanish and Mexican companies, together with the Faculty of Science and Electronics of the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (Mexico).
