Schaeffler shapes the mobility for tomorrow - today.
Schaeffler is bundling its numerous activities relating to electric mobility in an eMobility Systems Division – and is thereby pursuing a holistic approach that integrates the expertise of both the Automotive and Industrial Divisions. In this interdisciplinary centre of competence, Schaeffler is driving forward work in this increasingly important subject at a systems level. The product range already includes a large number of highly varied solutions relating to electric mobility. The range extends from sensor bottom brackets for so-called pedelecs, start-stop solutions and hybrid clutches right up to electric drives. Schaeffler has made a name for itself with the hybrid solutions presented in the vehicle full of ideas, the "Schaeffler Hybrid", and the wheel hub drive eWheel Drive. A further example is the innovative concept vehicle ACTIVEeDRIVE: This makes it possibly to experience how pure electric driving feels in reality. At its heart is the E-Differential, making Schaeffler a pioneer in innovative vehicle dynamics control. This opens up undreamt-of areas of application – from highly dynamic sports vehicles through classic cars to agricultural machinery.
As a leading technology partner, we are playing an active role in shaping electric mobility, whose future prospects and future capabilities will be decisively influenced by the contribution made by our innovations. With the eMobility Systems Division, we are also creating structures at an international level that will enable us to cover this important field in its entirety – and to bundle our numerous developments and products in this field in a systematic form.
The eMobility Systems Division is further evidence that we are systematically driving forward the development of electric mobility and participating in actively shaping a future based on renewable energy.
The Schaeffler ACTIVeDRIVE: an all-electric vehicle with four wheel drive and a total power rating of up to 210 kW. The 18 kWh Lithium-Ionen battery has a range of up to 100 km.
