Rheinmetall wins contract for electric motor housings for Chinese EVs

KS HUAYU AluTech, a member of Rheinmetall Automotive, has booked a major order from a German carmaker for electric motor housings. The €100-million contract will run for seven years.

Production of the aluminum housings is scheduled to begin in mid-2018 at a Rheinmetall subsidiary in China. The components will be used in several all-electric models, which are destined for the Chinese market.

Rheinmetall, which has specialized in the production of aluminum engine blocks, cylinder heads and structural parts for decades, is using a special low-pressure casting technology for the production of these highly complex castings.

The company expects electrification to account for more than half of its sales in 2020.
