Mahle recently presented its SCT (Superior Continuous Torque) electric motor at IAA Transportation 2022.
This new motor solves a dilemma common to many electric motors: the great discrepancy between continuous and peak power. While previous electric motors can produce their peak power only for a short time and then drop to about 60-70%, the company says the Mahle SCT electric motor can be operated continuously at over 90% of its peak power.
In addition to this, it is smaller and lighter than a conventional electric motor with the same continuous output. This makes it suitable for use in all vehicle classes, including heavy commercial vehicles. Mahle says it achieved this by using an oil cooling system.
