Swindon Powertrain: Swindon Powertrain launches compact 80 kW ‘Crate’ electric motor; to hit production in June


LONDON: Swindon Powertrain UK has launched a compact electric motor Crate that will generate 80 kW of power for low volume sports cars, light commercial and recreational vehicles in the UK market.
The company said, “Swindon Powertrain’s High-Power Density (HPD) EV system will ease the transition for manufacturers currently frustrated by the lack of compact, high power EV systems available to buy in low volumes,”
HPD project will develop tooling, including castings, and identify manufacturing techniques to have the unit in production by June 2020
The electric motor weighs 70 Kg and would measure 600mm wide by 440mm and 280mm tall.
Swindon Powertrain’s Managing Director Raphael Caille, said, “When you factor in development costs, specialist OEMs haven’t been able to electrify their vehicles as quickly as they would like. Our ready-to-install ‘crate’ powertrain will accelerate EV adoption in sectors poorly served by the larger tier one manufacturers and integrators.”
The new motor will assist OEMs in their endeavours to electrify their new products. Other sectors set to benefit include OEMs that could use it as an e-axle for hybrid passenger car applications as well as the growing number of retrofit classic cars being converted to EVs.
