DeepDrive announces partnership with Infineon Technologies

DeepDrive News: 12.09.2022

We are very proud of our partnership with Infineon Technologies. Because we aim to rethink electric mobility with our in-wheel motor, we need to work with market-leading solutions and best-in-class engineering teams: Thus, it is a no-brainer to collaborate with Infineon. The revolutionary DeepDrive e-powertrain has a 20 % efficiency advantage over the current state-of-the-art, an extremely high torque density, and is not only built very lightweight but also designed for low-cost series production. The powertrain module with integrated power electronics is scalable and compact and allows integration into any type of vehicle, both as central drive as well as in-wheel unit. With its powertrain technology, DeepDrive tackles the two biggest issues with electric vehicles: range and cost. 

Using Infineon’s motor control semiconductors and combining them with DeepDrive’s breakthrough technology creates a well-integrated, highly efficient powertrain system and builds on year-long experience in the automotive field.

 

“We at DeepDrive aim to rethink electric mobility and push technological boundaries. To achieve these ambitious goals, we need to work with market-leading solutions and best-in-class engineering teams: Thus, it is a no-brainer to collaborate with Infineon"

About DeepDrive

DeepDrive is a Munich-based high-tech startup offering e-motors for EVs. With our revolutionary new electric motor technology, we address the main problems of today’s electric vehicles by significantly reducing their cost by €3,000+ and increasing vehicle range by 20%. In addition, the technology is so compact that, instead of a central position, it can be integrated inside the wheels. At DeepDrive, we combine a radically new design with proven, deep expertise in the industrialisation of powertrains and develop a technology made for low-cost large-scale production. We received huge interest from the automotive industry and are working with 8 of the top 10 automakers in multiple development projects. With main partnerships already set up, we aim to start small series production by 2024 and proceed with large-scale series production by 2026.

DeepDrive is backed by renowned high-tech investors such as UVC Partners and Bayern Kapital, as well as business angels Jonas Rieke (COO of Personio) and Peter Mertens (former board member at Audi and Volvo).
