Dana, Valeo Team Up on 48-Volt Hybrid Tech
Dana Inc. and Valeo SA are partnering to supply 48-volt electric systems for all-wheel-drive hybrid cars and low-speed electric vehicles.
The systems will team Dana’s e-gearbox with Valeo’s electric motor and inverter. The first applications will be launched early next year on series-produced cars from an unspecified European carmaker.
