In July 2007, a bespoke Hewland transmission system equipped the very first hybrid motorsport vehicle to win a race – the Toyota Supra HV-R. Competing in the Tokachi 24-hour race, the car completed 616 laps, finishing 19 laps ahead of second place.

In September 2014, the world’s first all-electric race series, Formula E, proved to the world the potential of electric technology; once again a Hewland transmission was at the heart of the project.

The current electric world land speed record holder, the Venturi Buckeye Bullet 2.5, also uses a bespoke Hewland transmission. Produced by Ohio State University, this vehicle holds the current record at a little over 300 mph. Hewland have also equipped their next generation vehicle, the BB3. Redeveloped from the ground up, and with a brand new transmission, this vehicle intends to breach the 400 mph mark!

Hewland has also provided transmissions for a variety of OEM electric sports cars and prototypes. Recently, our EV work has expanded to include tracked, all-terrain exploration vehicles, working with high-profile clients to ensure that the challenges of working in the world’s most extreme conditions were overcome to provide strong, durable and reliable transmissions.

With involvement in various other high-profile, automotive applications, Hewland is vastly experienced within the world of electric transmission supply. If you have a project in mind, the chances are we can make it a reality, so please get in touch with us today to see how we can help.
