Better drive-trains for third-generation electric vehicles are the target of a European Horizon 2020 project, headed by the French research lab Leti. Called ModulED, the three-year project will cover boosting drivetrain performance, improving manufacturing efficiency, reducing environmental impact and vehicle cost. The subjects include for example use of Gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductors, manufacturing motor magnets with reduced rare-earth content and modular motors for easier production. BRUSA is proud to participate in this project.
