There are strong alternatives now for the con-
ventional drive-train of combustion engine, gear-
box and drive axle: these are hybrid drives and
electric drives with batteries or fuel cells. ZF
Friedrichshafen AG has made significant contri-
butions to this new variety. In addition to the new
development of purely electric drives, ZF is work-
ing on the further optimisation of parallel hybrid
drives that are already available on the market.
Whether passenger car or commercial vehicle –
ZF makes a major contribution to resource and
environmentally friendly mobility. And this not
only in theory: ZF’s products for drive-train elec-
trification are economical, practical and ready for
serial production. From electric machines to hy-
brid modules, control units, power electronics and
complete hybrid drives. We supply it all. ZF uses
its expertise in drive-train electrification; the tech-
nology company developed an electric drive for
small and medium-sized passenger cars, which
they customised for the future requirements of
urban traffic – the central drive module located on
the axle features 90 kW of mechanical power and
high torque at low revolution speeds. The result
is an acceleration potential that equals that of big
combustion engines.
ZF demonstrates the potential in the special com-
bination of electric mobility and lightweight con-
struction in their innovative product for small cars.
Lightweight chassis components complement the
electric axle drive and power inverter, which si-
multaneously extend range and improve the driv-
ing dynamics of the electric vehicle.
