2 Speed Powershift EDS
Facing the challenge of shifting for e-drives

Joachim Trumpff (Getec Getriebe Technik GmbH)

The arrangement of the electric motor(s) has become a question of philosophy. As always in technology, there is never one golden road. The advantages and disadvantages always have to be balanced against each other. Analysis results show, that more gears can be beneficial for the efficiency, especially for high performance applications or heavy cars. Customers for e-mobility require comfortable driving – no interruption of acceleration during shifting. Facing this challenge, a powershift able 2 speed EDS concept is developed and will be introduced.
