IE Drives Is The Leader In The Development Of Drivetrains And Drivetrain Development For Hybrid And Electric Vehicles
For over two decades, IEdrives and its people have had extensive experiences supporting the development of drivetrains and drivetrain balance of plant components for electric and hybrid series electric vehicles.
These activities began with the simpler tasks of converting belt driven engine accessories such as air conditioners, power steering pumps and high pressure superchargers to be electric motor driven. These early activities in the “electrification” of passenger vehicles were followed by extensive development work in support of fuel cell power systems as well as other types of hybrid power sources.
IEdrives’ personnel have participated in multiple programs for both OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) customers and DOE (Department of Energy) programs. Programs such as PNGV (Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles) and FreedomCAR (Cooperative Automotive Research) resulted in extensive activities in support of fuel cell power plants.
IEdrives personnel have participated in a significant number of clean sheet drive train development projects. These activities included definition, build and analysis for a number of specialty and one-off vehicles. Among the more notable projects was the initial design and fabrication of the original Proterra electric bus.
