Volkswagen Group unveils its new electric drive system.

In addition to the battery and electric motor, Volkswagen Group is developing in-house pulse inverters and thermal management systems, which are compatible with the next generation of the Modular Electric Drive Toolkit.

Volkswagen Group revealed its latest development in electric drive systems. At Tech Day 2023, the company announced that it would be introducing a complete drive system that includes batteries, electric motors, pulse inverters, and thermal management systems.

The innovation will provide efficiency and cost benefits for Volkswagen, with an increase in up to 20 percent efficiency through the optimal combination of individual components. The development of all central electric drive components is also focused on scalability, as Volkswagen seeks to capitalize on economies of scale to reduce costs.

Volkswagen is taking steps to become a leader in the electric vehicle market. The unveiling of the new electric drive system at Tech Day 2023 is a significant step toward achieving that goal.

The pulse inverter acts as the brain of the electric drive train and is largely responsible for efficiency and performance. Volkswagen has recently designed its first pulse inverter, with the developers completely rebuilding the hardware and software of the core component. Using the modular toolkit principle, the new pulse inverter can be integrated across Volkswagen’s range of vehicles, from entry-level models to high-performance sports cars with outputs exceeding 500 kW.

While the technology is still being fine-tuned for series production readiness, it is already compatible with the next generation of the Modular Electric Drive Toolkit (MEB), which is currently in development.

Volkswagen is also working on new thermal management systems. The new thermal management systems will have a highly compact and integrated thermal module that will handle the air conditioning for the entire vehicle, including the high-voltage battery. This innovative solution will significantly improve the vehicle’s range and fast-charging capabilities. Furthermore, the all-in-one module is lighter, more robust, and more efficient than current systems.

Oliver Blume, Chair of the Board of Management of the Volkswagen Group, said: “The Volkswagen Group and its brands stand for first-class products and technologies. Thanks to the size and breadth of the Group, as well as our in-house expertise, we can leverage enormous economies of scale. This benefits our customers and makes our vehicles even better.
