Vitesco Technologies delivers integrated axle drive to Chinese group Dongfeng
Vitesco Technologies, a leading international supplier of modern powertrain technologies and electrification solutions, has started the market launch of its fully integrated electric axle drives (EMR3) for Chinese auto group Dongfeng.
Dongfeng uses the axle drive for its brand-new all-electric version of the Yixuan car, a recent passenger car model which belongs to the Chinese A-segment that would internationally be considered a C-segment. At 1.5 tons of mass it offers a top speed of 155 km/h and gives the driver a range of around 400 kilometers calculated on the base of the NEDC.
Vitesco Technologies produces the electric axle drive system in China, currently the world’s largest and fastest-growing market for electric vehicles, and near to its customers. Product development has been done at the Vitesco Technologies locations in Berlin, Nuremberg (Germany) as well as in Shanghai and Tianjin (China).
