48V 15-25kW Electric Drive

Last update: 12 Jul. 2024

What is Valeo 48V electric drive?

The Valeo 48V eDrive (electric drive) or powertrain is a system embedding a high-efficiency electric motor with its associated inverter and a reducer.

It improves the fuel consumption (up to 15% CO2 benefits on WLTP), the driver comfort by providing full electric mode, efficient regenerative braking and four-wheel drive capability in 48V.

Providing right-sized power (18kW continuous and up to 25kW peak) in a small package at an affordable cost, the 48V Electric Drive is a breakthrough in hybridization, which can also address light electric vehicles (LSEV or small BEV).

This solution is a clear option to help automakers meet the challenge of reducing CO2 emissions by shifting hybridization and electrification from niche to mass market.
