Vitesco Technology, a leading international provider of modern drive
technologies and electrification solutions, announces another step
forward on its 800 V technology roadmap: After announcing an 800
V inverter customer order only a half year ago, the technology
company has now received an order for development and
production of 800 V electric traction motor technology in China. The
motor fits to the overall EMR4 platform, which was introduced at the
Transmission Symposium in China on July 8, 2021. Stator and
rotor will be part of a leading Chinese OEM’s electric vehicle
Vitesco Technologies will manufacture this technology at its Tianjin
site on a new line. The base development of the 8-layer hairpin
stator was a global project. The SOP for the 800 V motor technology
is scheduled for 2023.
“We are proud to contribute to the impressive growth of our Chinese
customer by delivering technology for an 800 V platform. This
business success is based on our R&D and manufacturing presence
in China and was supported by our global footprint. We are bringing
our proven 800 V expertise and also long-standing hairpin
manufacturing know-how to this project”, said Thomas Stierle,
Executive Vice President Electrification Technology business unit,
Drive technology to strengthen the market position
New Energy Vehicle (NEVs), including electric vehicles (EVs), are a
a quickly growing part of the important Chinese market: Based on
CAAM figures NEV sales may well surpass 2 million units in 2021.
As the numbers of NEVs are surging, it becomes more important for
each EV manufacturer to differentiate its products in the market. The
shift to 800 V technology is part of this process because it offers
faster charging, higher overall energy efficiency, and attractive
“The Chinese market is not only of paramount importance on the
global scale. It is also a competitive market that welcomes and
appreciates innovation and premium quality”, said Changsong Yu,
head of the Electrification Technology business unit Asia. “The 800V
technology significantly enhances our competitiveness in the
electrification market position in China. Our pioneering technology
fulfills our mission of powering clean mobility”, added Yu.
With its EMR3 platform, Vitesco Technologies is already mass producing prize-winning and highly efficient axle.
The addition of 800V motor technology for the EMR4 platform further completes the portfolio which now spans everything from components to full axle drives with a choice of voltage level. Cutting edge silicon carbide technology (SiC) gives the new 800V motor a high efficiency. Its 8 layer hairpin design ensures an optimum copper fill factor which translates into more power from compact dimensions. For Vitesco Technologies the stator and rotor are the first series application of its 800V motor technology. It is also the first traction motor design for oil-cooling.
