Translation Summary: Carmakers from the United States and other countries are thinking about ways to manufacture and improve a technology called an e-axle or e-drive. This technology is fast becoming an area of competition in the automobile industry.
The e-axle, or e-drive, joins an electric vehicle’s gear, motor, and power-control electronics. It is the “brain” that controls how a vehicle uses energy stored in its battery.
The technology has become a competitive area, in part, because automakers are under pressure to cut electric vehicles’ manufacturing costs. The goal is to make them cost as much as cars powered by gasoline.
Progress in new technologies is also important for efforts to cut pollution, including carbon dioxide, also known as CO2.
Vehicle-based CO2 emissions are responsible for about 17% of emissions from all sources, says Zifei Yang. She is with the International Council on Clean Transportation in Washington.
