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.
The partners predict that 48-volt power systems will be used in one-third of all new vehicles worldwide by 2030.
According to Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet truck marketing director, “We engineer and build our trucks with customers’ expectations in mind.”
Ford has made an accomplishment that will never be bested, never even be tied.
Although the RAV4 has plenty of heritage in the small crossover segment, competition has gotten a whole lot tougher, so Toyota has made significant changes to the fourth-generation model.
