Swiss power electronics supplier BRUSA Elektronik has introduced a new electric drivetrain unit that combines a motor and gearbox. The DTSP1 “is optimal for use in sports cars and vans as well as light commercial vehicles due to its low weight and high power density.”
BRUSA’s HSM1-10.18.22 motor offers continuous power output of 145 kW (194 hp) and maximum output of 220 kW (295 hp), with up to 460 N·m (339 lb-ft) peak torque.
The gearbox is water-cooled and optionally equipped with a parking lock.
The DTSP1 unit can be used as an axle or four-wheel drivetrain set. “By using the differential on the axles, powerful yet weight-optimized drives can be realized,” says BRUSA. “With the adjustment of the axle differential every application can be achieved with the right ratio.”
A similar BRUSA motor/gearbox powers the Electric Sprinter commercial transporter made by Kreisel Electric, which has a 3.5-ton payload and a range of up to 350 km.
