Continental introduces new e-axle at Shanghai; to begin production of 48V mHEV system in China this year

20 April 2017

At Auto Shanghai 2017, Continental showcased a new compact, lightweight electrical axle drive. Weighing around 75 kilograms (165 pounds), the axle drive has a maximum output of up to 150 kW, a maximum torque of 400 N·m and overall dimensions of 400x500x320 millimeters.

Continental says that this product is a key component allowing Chinese vehicle manufacturers to expand the range of electric vehicles especially in the mid-size class. The axle module will be manufactured in China.

This year will also see Continental launch production of its 48-volt “people’s hybrid” system in the Chinese market.

Continental also introduced a new generation of advanced driver assistance cameras featuring an integrated high-pressure water pump for cleaning the lenses in the event of soiling.
