Frost & Sullivan Award to In-Wheel Direct Drive Motor Company

Frost & Sullivan presented the “2008 European Automotive Powertrain Entrepreneurial Company Award” to e-Traction Europe B.V. for having demonstrated entrepreneurial excellence with its in-wheel direct drive motor technology and e-Traction system.

The e-Traction system is a complete module that includes auxiliary power unit (APU), universal rear axle and in-wheel direct drive motors (TheWheel). This design offers flexibility in terms of retrofitting with current components within a vehicle.

The company recently won a contract for the conversion of 5 Volvo buses with e-Traction system for the Town of Apeldoorn (Netherlands). The company has also collaborated with the Boudesteijn Group, Nedstack (Netherlands) to implement the e-Traction system in a 7.5 ton city delivery truck that was introduced at the European Road Transport show in 2007 and won the European Road Transport Show Innovation Award.

The Frost & Sullivan Award for Entrepreneurial Company is presented each year to the small company that demonstrated superior entrepreneurial ability in its industry during the research period.
