GETRAG has secured a proposal from Volvo Car Firm to supply the electric force unit 1eDT240 for the utility Volvo C30.
Volvo is building up a smallish fleet of test electronic Volvo C30 vehicles serves with regard to research purposes, and may use a leasing unit to selected customers such as companies and governmental bodies. To this point, the car is not obtainable for end-customers.
Currently the highest-performance single-motor drive product 1eDT240 in the group’s product or service portfolio uses a entirely excited synchronous machine having a maximum output of 82 kW (at a small voltage of the electric power storage device of Three hundred and sixty volt). The coaxial commute unit was especially developed for the stressful requirements of virtually silent purely utility driving. It is seen as an the partial intergrated , of the electric motor and therefore for its very streamlined design.
The development method placed particular concentrate on noise-optimized gearing and very high efficiency. The utmost drive torque of two,400 Nm offers plenty of traction force to make even sporty acceleration probable. The 1eDT240 drive product benefits from use of large-scale series production parts within the GETRAG modular system.
If necessary, the 1eDT240 can also be with a higher-performance electric motor giving up to 145 kW. It can be supplied during three different signal ratios.
GETRAG has been mixed up in the field of electric commute systems since ’92 and has already acquired several series production orders and a great number of development contracts in this region. Several electric-drive test fleets elizabeth.g. of the 320i repair MINI, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class F-CELL and also the Necar Series, have already been equipped with GETRAG drive technology.
