The new generation of more compact power electronics, which will be launched in August 2015, controls the power of hybrid and electric vehicles even more efficiently.
The range of the electric drive is determined by the battery; its acceleration characteristics by the electric motor. Yet in both cases, there is another decisive factor: the efficiency of the entire electric drive system – and this is determined primarily by the power electronics. The system is of central importance for the electric drive's power, and makes it fun to drive.
To reduce fuel consumption and emissions even further, Continental has bridged the gap between the reasonably priced 12-volt start-stop systems and the more expensive hybrid solutions with voltages from 110 volts. With this in mind, the international automotive supplier has developed its "48-Volt Eco Drive" system.
