AxleTech International has announced a partnership with motor manufacturer TM4 to develop integrated electric axles (e-axles) for heavy-duty vehicles.
As part of AxleTech’s Electric Drivetrain Systems product line, the company is developing e-axles with multiple-speed gearboxes that are integrated with electric motors. These integrated drivetrain systems are designed to be compact, light, quiet, and easy for OEMs to integrate into a variety of vehicle platforms and chassis.
AxleTech aims to bring the new electric axles to the market soon.
“TM4 is proud to cooperate with AxleTech on this new program,” said Patrice Dupont, Business Development Manager at TM4. “We believe that by aligning each company’s strengths, AxleTech will bring to the market a competitive and innovative solution.”
“Our customers are seeking new electric drivetrain solutions, so having industry-leading partners such as TM4 enables us to jointly develop complete drivetrain systems that meet their requirements,” said Jason Gies, Business Development Manager at AxleTech.
