IVECO’s FPT Industrial created the working gear for the Maserati Gran Turismo Folgore, the primary automobile within the model’s historical past to undertake a 100% electrical powertrain. IVECO is thought extra for its massive business car purposes.
The brand new automobile from Maserati runs on FPT Industrial’s ePropulsion system, which relies on 800V battery and motor expertise and has been developed with cutting-edge Components E technical options. It’s outfitted with three 300 kW permanent-magnet motors built-in into entrance and rear FPT Industrial electrical axles, delivering as much as 761 hp to the car. This highly effective and environment friendly system permits for an astonishing 2.7 sec 0-100 km/h time, with a prime velocity of 325 km/h.
“To be chosen as expertise companion by Maserati means going through challenges that require the very best ranges of expertise and experience, mixed with the suitable flexibility,” Andrea Cugnini, Head of FPT Industrial’s ePowertrain Enterprise Line, mentioned in a press assertion.
Light-weight & Excessive Energy Density
A single-motor electrical axle on the entrance and a two-motor electrical axle on the rear ship as much as 4.83 kW/kg, also referred to as “energy density” — the EV equal of power-to-weight ratio. These axles are a primary from the FPT Industrial model, and have a compact and light-weight design, due to their absolutely aluminum construction. The eAxles are manufactured within the ePowertrain plant, the Iveco Group’s first carbon-neutral premises, positioned in Turin, created not solely to conform however “to ship FPT Industrial’s sustainability focus.”
In line with FPT Industrial, “each the entrance and rear eAxles stand out for being an entire resolution in a really compact design. All elements, together with the inverters, are completely built-in into the eAxles, avoiding the necessity to place them elsewhere within the automobile construction. This presents important advantages by way of house and weight distribution, particularly for a high-performance automobile like the brand new Maserati Gran Turismo Folgore.”
On one hand, the eAX 300-F entrance electrical axle boasts a peak energy output of over 300 kW and most wheel torque of three,100 Nm. It additionally incorporates a parking lock system for enhanced security, stopping car motion whereas parked. Alternatively, the eAX 600-R dual-motor rear electrical axle options peak energy of over 600 kW and most wheel torque of 6,500 Nm.
The 2 motors built-in into the patented rear axle are completely decoupled, with no transmission connecting the wheels. This design makes it attainable to independently handle the torque of every wheel. The Torque Vectoring delivers significantly greater ranges of security, stability, and management to the Gran Turismo Folgore in any scenario.
The brand new 100% electrical Maserati Gran Turismo Folgore was offered to the press on the finish of January 2023, whereas it was unveiled to the general public through the Motor Valley Fest in Modena, Italy.
“I’m proud to say that the crew went the additional mile to beat all these challenges, giving FPT Industrial a gap into the high-performance automobile section and making it an integral a part of a real new Italian masterpiece. We’ve got mixed tailored expertise, sustainability, and the fun supplied by solely the very best high-end automobiles,” Cugnini concluded.
