The electric drive is increasingly becoming a key component of personal mobility. Particularly in cities, hybrid and electric cars can display their strengths, which include fewer local emissions and a quiet, yet fascinatingly dynamic propulsive power. These characteristics make vehicles with an electric powertrain more environmentally friendly and convenient – with built-in driving enjoyment.
With powertrain technology from Bosch, electromobility not only becomes the means of choice in individual traffic but it is also increasingly more attractive for the mass market and more economically viable for manufacturers. The purely electric range of vehicles is increasing while emissions continue to decline. This is made possible by innovative technology from Bosch such as the eAxle and the fuel cell-electric drive.
The Bosch portfolio not only includes highly efficient and compact components, but also complete solutions whose easy integration in the vehicle permits swift market maturity. Beyond the powertrain, Bosch is also optimizing energy flows throughout the entire vehicle with smart thermal management, for example, for particularly efficient air conditioning.
With manufacturing and development sites worldwide, Bosch is strongly committed to electric mobility and familiar with the local particularities and demands of individual markets. For example, Bosch serves China as an important lead market for electromobility with suitable solutions and even manufactures the eAxle and 48-volt battery there.
