Research Review: A decade of EV transmission projects – lessons learnt

Drive System Design has been at the forefront of EV transmission technology for over a decade and in that time has worked on more than 70 EV transmission projects. In 2011, DSD commenced development of its own powertrain with an integrated multi-speed transmission called MSYS. The concept was ahead of its time with a revolutionary alternative approach to powershifting at the heart of the system.

We’ve often been asked why an electric powertrain needs a transmission at all. In this Research Review we answer that question and discuss many of the top level takeaways we have learnt over the last ten years. To read the review, please click on the image below.
