Dana and Valeo Collaborate on 48-Volt Electric Vehicles
Dana and Valeo announced this year a global collaboration to develop and supply 48-volt electric-vehicle systems for new-mobility applications, including low-speed electric and hybrid e-AWD vehicles. The first system is scheduled to launch in early 2020 with a major European automaker on series-produced cars.
The joint development will provide customers with complete electromechanical systems for three- and four-wheeled low-speed electric vehicles, as well as hybrid e-AWD applications for passenger cars and crossovers. The systems will be equipped with a Dana-designed Spicer® Electrified™ e-Gearbox, and a Valeo-developed electric motor and inverter.
