Bosch begins production of new electric drive unit for commercial vehicles

Bosch is beginning to produce a new electric drive unit designed for light commercial vehicles, including vans and medium-size trucks.

The drive unit is composed of a permanent-magnet synchronous motor and an integrated inverter. The unit weighs about 80 kilograms, and has a maximum power of 129 kW, continuous power of 100 kW and a peak torque of 430 Nm. Bosch says the inverter has an efficiency level of 97%.

The new unit is being produced at Bosch’s plant in Hildesheim, Germany. The company says the unit will be installed in an 8.5-ton Daimler truck.

“Compared to its predecessors, the new unit provides even higher power and torque density, and is even lighter and more compact,” says Bosch Board Member Dr. Markus Heyn.
