Plot­ting the fu­ture of the car

The cen­tre­piece of the Scha­ef­fler booth at Tokyo Mo­tor Show was the “glass car” – a scale model pep­pered with ap­prox­i­mately 40 Scha­ef­fler prod­ucts and tech­no­log­i­cal devel­op­ments. It fea­tured im­pres­sive demon­stra­tions of Scha­ef­fler’s ex­per­tise in de­vel­op­ing ad­vanced so­lu­tions to en­hance fuel ef­fi­ciency, driv­ing dy­nam­ics and com­fort, while low­er­ing harm­ful emis­sions.

The model also had a dig­i­tal dis­play ex­plain­ing all the fea­tured prod­uct in­no­va­tions, for ex­am­ple the electro­mechan­i­cal ac­tive roll sta­bi­liza­tion in 12V and 48V ver­sions. ra­tion evel­oped n. xle ed

per­for­mance hy­brid and full elec­tric ve­hi­cles. Also fea­tured was the P2 high- high-volt­age volt­age hy­brid mod­ule from Scha­ef­fler, a new so­lu­tion for elec­tri­fi­ca­tion of the drive train which can be matched to a large num­ber of drive con­cepts on a mod­u­lar ba­sis con­sist­ing of an au­to­mated dis­con­nect clutch and elec­tric ma­chine.

The new gen­er­a­tion P2 hy­brid mod­ule, with its high ver­sa­til­ity and wide torque range can be used in both medium and very high per­for­mance pow­er­train con­cepts and con­trib­utes con­sid­er­ably to fur­ther re­duc­tions in fuel consumption.

The mod­ule can trans­mit in­ter­nal­nal­com­bus­tion torques of up to 800Nm 0Nm to the trans­mis­sion. Aimed at the grow­ing two-wheel ve­hi­cle mar­ket in South­east Asia, Scha­ef­fler un­veiled a tech­nol­ogy demonstration for an ef­fi­cient, cost­ef­fec­tive mo­tor­cy­cle for low to medium per­for­mance classes at its booth in Tokyo Mo­tor Show with in­no­va­tions for en­gines, trans­mis­sions and chas­sis. An­other high­light at the Scha­ef­fler booth was the pres­ence of FIA For­mu­lae-pi­lot Lu­cas di Grassi as well as his race­car, the ABT-Scha­ef­fler FE01.

The world­wide first race se­ries for e-cars, the FIA For­mula-echam­pi­onship rep­re­sents the most dy­namic form of elec­tri­cal driv­ing. From the very be­gin­ning Scha­ef­fler has been the ex­clu­sive tech­nol­ogy part­ner and has de­signed the en­gine and trans­mis­sion for the race­car.

“For­mula e is an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity to com­bine the emo­tions of car rac­ing with Scha­ef­fler tech­nolo­gies,” ex­plains Shinzo Yot­sumoto, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Scha­ef­fler Ja­pan. “This highly at­trac­tive race se­ries brings emo­tions to e-mo­bil­ity and we can ben­e­fit in our au­to­mo­tive prod­uct de­vel­op­ment.”
