Systematic continuation of high-voltage strategy for Europe
For the European market, customers expect a different performance spectrum for electrification solutions. SEG Automotive has already developed a scalable e-machine platform for this purpose, which sets standards in particular in terms of efficiency and smooth operation.
The e-machines based on this platform can be used flexibly in the powertrain: in the transmission environment of combustion engines for 48V hybridization, for example, or as the sole e-drive on the rear axle. In addition to scalable voltage and power – from 48V to 800V and from 15 to 150kW, SEG Automotive offers an equally flexible modular system for software and electronics.
"With our EM product family, we efficiently and dynamically cover a wide range of customer requirements in the passenger car and commercial vehicle segments for the European market. From individual components to high-impact 3in1 system solutions together with partners, all depending on the customer's needs," says Rüdiger Benz, senior vice president engineering at SEG Automotive. "The foundation is our comprehensive development expertise for e-machine hardware, software and electronics as well as their interaction."
The market entry in Europe is lead by the HQ in Stuttgart together with the European production sites. As part of the global HV approach, there will be intensive exchange between Stuttgart and China with regard to technology, market and customer activities.
"The investment in the high-voltage development center in China not only leverages local market opportunities. It also strengthens the further development of competencies and technological capabilities of the entire company," says Ferdinando Sorrentino. "In this way, we will extend our role as technology leader for 12V and 48V solutions to the high-voltage market as well."
