UQM develops and manufactures power-dense, high-efficiency electric motors, generators, power electronic controllers and fuel cell compressors.

New Eagle applies model-based design to embedded systems, and has progressed from engineering to the supply of controls for production vehicles.

‘Turn-Key Solutions’

Their goal is to provide “turn-key solutions for rapid prototype development that will lead to successful production programs” using UQM’s PowerPhase hardware and New Eagle’s supervisory control software.

“Working with UQM brings a higher ease of integration to the end customer,” New Eagle president Rich Swortzel says in the UQM announcement. “UQM has an impressive record of successful performance at a very competitive price point,” he said.

‘A Growing Need in the Marketplace’

“Our electric commercial drivetrain customers will benefit from this combination.”

“UQM has seen a growing need in the marketplace for integrated drivetrain solutions,” said UQM president and CEO Joe Mitchell. “We see this collaboration as a great step towards providing the end customers with a variety of integrated platforms by vehicle class that will lead to more commercial electric vehicles on the road.”
