At Wards Intelligence, we’re strongly aware that the development of electrified vehicles is at the top of every automaker and supplier technology list. MAHLE, as a leading global automotive supplier and a technology pioneer, is drawing on its traditional strengths to develop a portfolio of new technologies to support the electrification revolution.
Join us for this informative 60-minute webinar that will outline the global outlook for battery-electric vehicles and related motor and battery demands. We’ll take a look at some of the challenges facing OEMs and suppliers as it relates to batteries and motors. We will then take a deep dive into the advanced solutions offered by MAHLE’s innovative Immersion-Cooling Batteries and Magnet-Free Electric Motor technologies.
- MAHLE, the specialist for thermal management, i.e., the heating and cooling of the vehicle interior and components, has developed a completely new cooling system for batteries. MAHLE’s innovative battery-cooling system is designed for faster charging of electric vehicles which significantly shortens charging time, allowing the batteries to be more compact and resource-efficient.
- MAHLE has developed a highly efficient Magnet-Free Electric Motor that combines the strengths of different electric motor concepts into one product, allowing for a cost-efficient, resource security and environmental compatibility solution.
- MAHLE is a leading international development partner and supplier to the automotive industry as well as a pioneer and technology driver for the mobility of the future. As part of MAHLE’s dual strategy, the company is working both on the intelligent combustion engine technology for the use of hydrogen and other non-fossil fuels and on technologies that will help the fuel cell and e-mobility achieve broad acceptance in the markets.
