Transporting people or goods with heavy-duty vehicles accounts for 34% of US greenhouse gas emissions and about 70% of all US oil use. Electrification is key in the race to net-zero, but heavy-duty in particular faces technology obstacles.

In heavy-duty vehicles, weight is a top consideration. To date, to meet heavy-duty’s long-range needs, a heavier battery is needed, which requires greater energy and power output. Powertrain efficiencies, battery optimization, and creative charging solutions are essential in the transition from diesel to electric, and heavy-duty is ripe for disruptive, clean energy solutions that optimize performance and lower costs.

In this session, we'll explore how an intelligent traction drive system integrates with standard direct-drive and axle powertrains and how intelligent coil switching optimizes the powertrain, enhances torque, improves performance, while reducing costs in heavy-duty electric vehicles. Plus, learn how next-generation technology can reduce the number of power electronics required, lowering overall vehicle cost and increasing efficiencies in weight and space in the vehicle.
