Panasonic’s Scalable “ePowertrain” for Small EVs

16 January 2018

Japan’s Panasonic Corp. said it has developed a scalable “ePowertrain” platform, for developing small electric vehicles (EVs). Panasonic said the platform is a systematized application of devices used in the EVs of major global auto manufacturers.

The Panasonic powertrain features integrated compactness, high efficiency, and flexible scalability. It consists of basic units, including a power unit (with an on-board charger, junction box, inverter and dc-to-dc converter) and a motor unit. The platform is designed to help reduce costs and lead time for vehicle development by scaling up or down the combination of basic units in accordance with vehicle specifications such as size, speed and torque.

Panasonic has developed and delivered a wide range of components – including batteries, on-board chargers, film capacitors, dc-to-dc converters and relays – specifically for EVs, plug-in hybrids, and hybrid EVs.
