Dana Says Electrification Necessitates Purposeful Engineering

Development of drivetrains and other systems for electric vehicles requires more, well thought out engineering to ensure an optimized solution is achieved.


This week on OEM Industry Update we speak with Jeremy Frenznick, Senior Director, CV Engineering at Dana Inc., about current electrification trends for drivetrains and commercial vehicles. He says a different design approach is needed for the new, more complex systems used by electric vehicles. Full-vehicle and architecture requirements now need to be taken into consideration, creating the need for drivetrain and commercial vehicle manufacturers to shift their way of thinking when designing electric vehicles.       

OEM Industry Update covers various technologies and trends in the heavy equipment engineering and manufacturing industries. Click here to find past episodes of the OEM Industry Update podcast.
