KMD launches constant-velocity driveshafts for EVs

Kalyani Mobility Drivelines (KMD), a manufacturer of driveline components, has introduced a lineup of constant-velocity (CV) driveshafts for EVs and other specialty vehicles.

KMD’s CV driveshafts are designed using high-strength steel for optimal performance under high torque generated by EVs, military, specialty and motorsports vehicles, and are engineered for a range between 7,000 and 16,000 Nm of torque at speeds up to 8,000 rpm.

The company says its driveshafts offer design flexibility with no need for the equal angle alignment required by cardan designs. They’re also designed to provide smooth operation and long life, even under the most extreme operating conditions faced by military and specialty vehicles.

“EVs and other vehicles that create high torque put tremendous stress on driveline components. We engineer our CV driveshafts to survive under loads that would cause other driveshafts to fail,” said Dave Moore, Engineering Manager at KMD.
