Efficiency, low development costs, and quick market maturity are well within reach thanks to Bosch’s electric axle. The eAxle integrates the motor, power electronics, and transmission in a single unit – a concept referred to by manufacturers as the all-in-one principle. The resulting synergies reduce costs, save time, and, in turn, increase efficiency. For example, the motor and inverter share the same cooling circuit, eliminating the need for costly copper cables running between the two components. What’s more, the versatile eAxle is suitable for a range of different vehicles thanks to its scalability. As a result, it functions as a kind of “start-up powertrain” for electric vehicles – even for established manufacturers.

Charging apps are Bosch Software Innovations’ answer to a big problem: drivers of electric vehicles often have to register with multiple different charge spot operators to charge their cars. Thanks to the charging app, that is now a thing of the past. The idea: 20,000 charge spots, 20 networks, 10 countries, and one app. Using the app lets customers access everything they need in one place and conveniently pay for the charging process. With this solution, Bosch is making the charging infrastructure even more user-friendly. Integrating the application into the vehicle display is a further step towards achieving holistic connectivity for mobility solutions.
