    E-mobility is unstoppable.

    Not individual components but a turnkey solution

      The new Voith Electrical Drive System (VEDS) HD+ consists of the electric motor EVO 330 with 330 kW or EVO 390 with 390 kW, the electric transmission, which allows the right gear-shifting program for each application, complemented by the new inverter generation, our Future Inverter Platform, for high-performance range.

      Electric motors EVO 330 and EVO 390
      When it comes to the drive system, you can choose between two electric motors tailored to the respective application.
      The EVO 390 (390 kW) is ideal for applications up to 40 t gross vehicle weight with a high proportion of intercity and freeway travel, as well as for electric coaches.

      With the EVO 330 (330 kW), the focus is on refuse trucks and comparable applications in urban areas with frequent start-stop operations. Both motors have a very stable thermal design with high continuous output.

      Electric transmission
      The transmission developed by Voith allows the right gear-shifting program for each application, which optimally covers the power requirements of the vehicle with the lowest energy consumption.
      It is designed to work with maximum efficiency at high torque and high speeds. This also makes the transmission ideal for long-distance driving. It can deliver sufficient power to the axles even on steep inclines.

      Technical specifications

      • 4-speed (AMT) transmission
      • BLDC gear actuator for fastest shifting time
      • 99% transmission efficiency in 4th gear
      • Retarder interface for 650 kW braking power
      • Weight: 170 kg

      Future inverter platform
      The centerpiece of the VEDS HD+ drive system, the newly developed inverter, is also geared for use in the high-performance range.
      Not only can the innovative power electronics cope with the power of the two EVO motors, but they also offer the option of additional power classes. Directly cooled power semiconductors ensure a high-power density.

      Technical specifications
