The electrification of road-going vehicles is gathering momentum like nothing the automotive industry has seen for a while. Which electric vehicle transmission to use is one of the questions automotive designers are grappling with as they rush to develop new electric cars to meet demand. As the company that supplied electric vehicle transmission solution to the Formula E race series at the start of the decade, it’s no surprise we’re leading the charge to put electric cars on the road as well. Hewland supplied the full grid in the inaugural season of the Formula E and are still a significant supplier into this series.
Outside of motorsport Hewland have worked on a variety of Electric and Hybrid projects ranging from 3.5T commercial vehicles to niche volume EV supercars to working with the team that holds the electric land speed record to name a few.
Hewland have off-the-shelf high-performance EV transmissions or our in-house design office can develop a new EV transmission to meet your requirements using the latest race-proven modelling software ensuring optimal performance, weight and packaging efficiency.
Hewland’s designers work closely with our customers to define the best powertrain architecture, understanding the customers end-requirement such as range, acceleration or top speed.
