Modular electric drive systems

Prime mover advantage

GKN Automotive’s family of modular electric drives makes driveline electrification simple. Automakers use our electric drive systems to boost performance, regenerate kinetic energy more efficiently and offer a more refined pure electric driving mode.

GKN Automotive’s modular strategy makes integrating the right system for each application simpler, delivering the best combination of intelligent dynamics, efficiency and cost.

Electric drives can be supplied as 3-in-1 with inverter, motor and transmission fully integrated, sourced as 2-in-1 systems, or as single modules.

GKN Automotive’s all-wheel drive expertise means the system integration and driving modes deliver outstanding safety and performance.


Modular electric drive system for electric vehicles

Innovative vehicles are driven by proven technologies.

Whatever your packaging requirements, we have the solution, with offset, co-axial and planetary gearset modules.

GKN Automotive’s G200 single-speed transmission for electric vehicles turns electric power into instant torque at the wheels.

Engineered for superior NVH and efficiency, its compact modular design makes it easy to integrate with different eMotor concepts. Integration is quick and simple.

Modular electric drive system for compact cars

The single-speed G250C electric drive system is the smallest and lightest of GKN Automotive’s solutions for pure electric and hybrid applications. Its space-saving design enables it to package in the same space as a platform’s rear drive module.

The low weight is achieved through the semi-integration of the electric drive module. A unique electronic disconnect differential (EDD) module decouples the electric motor from the driveline at higher vehicle speeds to enhance system efficiency and prevent overspeeding.

Modular electric drive system for mid-sized cars

The single-speed G400 electric drive system offers a breakthrough in performance, size and cost, making it ideal for both primary drive for mid-size pure electric cars and secondary drive for large hybrid vehicles.

The scalable unit generates up to 4,000Nm of additional torque and power – enough for pure electric mode and a highly dynamic eAWD mode making it simpler to electrify the rear axle in front-wheel drive platforms.

Modular electric drive system for large pure electric vehicles

The single-speed G550 electric drive system offers unmatched performance, making it the ideal solution for larger vehicle applications.

The compact modular design generates up to 5,300Nm of torque – enough for a dynamic pure electric mode for large BEVs.
