Remy mounted a display at the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis last week, and perhaps more importantly, its motors could be seen on several vehicles at the show.
BAE Systems is using Remy motors in its HybriDrive Parallel hybrid electric drivetrain for trucks, represented in Indianapolis in a Kenworth T800 dump truck. Startup Via Motors, which has huge plans for its range-extended battery trucks, plans to go into production with a non-rare earth inductive version of the current Remy line.
Also last week, California’s Enova Systems, citing “proven durability and power density,” disclosed a five-year contact for Remy motors for its electric and hybrid electric vehicle drivetrains. Enova’s software can handle the new non-permanent magnet inductive motors, too, says company president Mike Staran. Remy’s HVH motors, for High Voltage Hairpin, use a unique copper wire geometry to pack more metal into a smaller space.
There are more than 90,000 customer-validated Remy motors in service, states a release.
