Introducing TM4 SUMOTM

logo_sumo_

High torque electric powertrains

The TM4 SUMOTM systems are designed to interface directly with standard rear differentials and/or gearboxes and/or e-axles. It makes this series perfect for class 2 to 8 commercial vehicles and light to medium bus platforms.

This series consists of high-torque/low-speed reluctance-assisted permanent magnet motor and controller combinations that offer cost-effective solutions to vehicle electrification or hybridization.

The direct-drive advantage

Increase your battery’s efficiency by 10%

TM4 SUMO high torque motors can interface directly with standard rear differential without the need for an intermediate gearbox. A direct drive system allows for the following benefits:

  • Higher efficiency: a transmission can be responsible for approximately 5 to 10 % energy losses inside the powertrain due to mechanical friction
  • Better reliability: removing the gearbox means removing the most mechanically complex and maintenance intensive part of the vehicle
  • Easy to fit between the H beam of the truck or in the engine bay of the city bus: no need to modify the vehicle architecture
  • Lower maintenance: TM4 direct-drive motors require no maintenance
  • Faster ROI
