The new electric motor had its global launch at IAA Transportation 2022

MAHLE recently presented its SCT (Superior Continuous Torque) electric motor as a world first at IAA.
It says this new motor solves a dilemma common to many electric motors: the great discrepancy between continuous and peak power.
While previous electric motors can only produce their peak power for a short time and then drop to about 60 to 70 percent, MAHLE says its SCT electric motor can be operated continuously at over 90 percent of its peak power.
In addition to this, MAHLE explains it is substantially 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 states that it achieved this technological leap by using an innovative oil cooling system.
MAHLE is a leading international development partner and supplier to the automotive industry with customers in the passenger car and commercial vehicle sectors.
With the introduction of the new electric motor, MAHLE becomes a full-range supplier in the field of electric drives. From pedelecs to passenger cars to heavy-duty commercial vehicles, MAHLE says it electrifies everything that has wheels.
The technology group, which was founded in 1920, says it is working on the climate-neutral mobility of tomorrow with a focus on the strategic fields of electromobility and thermal management as well as other technology fields to reduce CO2 emissions, for example fuel cells or highly efficient combustion engines that can also run on e-fuels or hydrogen.
