GKN Automotive has reported that more than two million electrified vehicles are now using its eDrive technology on the road globally.
Rising demand for electric vehicles has enabled GKN Automotive to increase the range and volume of its products to its existing customers, which make up 90% of OEMs globally, as well as target newer players in the industry.
Meanwhile, last month, GKN Automotive announced its next generation inverter using 800V technology, which enables faster charging times, increased vehicle range, and improved performance for electric vehicles of the future. Its improved efficiency also creates the potential for manufacturers to reduce the weight, complexity, and cost of their electric powertrains without sacrificing performance.
Liam Butterworth, CEO, GKN Automotive said: “Reaching the two million mark is a significant achievement for the business and is a testament to the efficiency, high-performance and quality of the product as well as our talented engineers across the world. Electrification isn’t new to us, we have spent the past 20 years producing eDrive technologies for our customers, as we continue to lead the industry in innovative next-generation drive systems.
“Powering electrified vehicles forms a crucial part of our mission to make the automotive industry more sustainable, and this milestone is an indication of our strong progress to date. We look forward to powering many more vehicles on the road as demand for a more sustainable mode of transport continues to accelerate.”
