GKN Automotive finally let its eTwinster technology show its real face to the world, as automakers continue to test the torque vectoring electric drive system.
This thing is a plug-in hybrid module that they showcased at the company’s Wintertest which proved to be a unique all-wheel drive drive-line option.
The eTwinster is build to offer automakers a combined solution for plug-in all-wheel drive and hybrid platforms. Simply put, it is a combination of eAxle technologies that the company provides for companies such as BMW, Porsche, and Volvo.
A total production of 1,770 lb-ft of torque is sent through the dual clutch system, with ratios of course. A practical and efficient invention, indeed.
