Product: eMobility Gearbox

On the rise.

The motive. VDS sets new innovative standards – with the entry into the eMobility world, our experienced team once again underpins its leadership claim.


The advantages.

The innovative solutions of the VDS-eMotion series offer customers and vehicle users a whole range of technical and economic advantages:

Above all, the outstanding energy efficiency must be pointed out here – minimum points of contact on the components with the lowest friction torques, highly efficient minimum volume lubrication, state-of-the-art smooth-running gear oils and bearing the shafts in extreme smooth-running tapered roller bearings from the market leader – all this underlines the benchmark ingenuour of these VDS products.

Our engineers ensure maximum weight advantages through robust minimum wall thicknesses on the housing parts, targeted calculation-supported ribs, slim construction of the gears, hollow shaft design and optimum material selection for cast and steel.

We achieve the minimum noise of the eGear series on the one hand by ground gears with high overload, along with almost friction-free bearing and on the other hand by the design of the gearbox housings.

The topic of functional safety in operation is also at the top of VDS’ list of priorities, which is why we also offer an integrated safety brake in our transmission solutions upon customer request.

Ultimately, we offer our customers a true complete module with the eAD transmission series, which covers all challenges between the electric machine and the drive wheels.

The exceptional service friendliness of the VDS transmissions provides the right answer to the reality of driving – who really guarantees the regular execution of transmission oil changes for a 100% – so our products not only have excellent emergency running characteristics, but also the maintenance intervals are generously dimensioned.

Ultimately, the eTransmissions of the VDS were successfully subjected to extensive and long functional and service life tests under the highest load profiles, thus giving customers maximum safety.

Technical description

Emission-free for the future – light, robust, reliable

eDrives with perfection

The eGB and eAD transmission series cover a wide range of requirements in terms of input speeds, input power and torque, as well as transmission ratios and output speeds.

The eAD series also includes an integrated differential unit, which can also be equipped with a locking function on request.

The gearbox construction is optimally designed in terms of robustness and functionality, in addition to a multifunctional main housing, the end cover covers the entire outer unit. High-quality aluminium casting was deliberately used as a housing material to withstand the enormous loads in driving mode. High-strength insert steels in top quality can be found inside the gearboxes, whereby the toothing in polished design has a particularly high coverage in order to reduce the acoustic emissions to a minimum.
