DETROIT—The annual North American International Auto Show, unlike most similar events in the US, is remarkably well attended by automotive suppliers as well as major OEMs like Bosch. The tier one supplier used the latest show to debut its new eAxle, a compact unit that's modular and scalable in design.
As you'll see in the video, the eAxle really is a lot more compact than combining the company's current individual systems together. "We can realize five-to-ten percent efficiency over standalone components when we move to an integrated unit," explained Bosch's Jon Poponea. Look in an electric vehicle on the roads right now, and you'll probably see a whole bunch of different components, all connected with thick orange-wrapped leads.
