Electric vehicles are expected to be disruptive to just about everybody in the commercial vehicle value stream, including those producing drivetrain components.
As such, many manufacturers are already looking to diversify their product offerings. Several drivetrain component manufacturers are developing products to meet the needs of electric vehicles and equipment.
Changes to traditional drivetrain system and component designs will vary. Some of the biggest changes will likely affect the type and amount of gearing and bearings necessary in a system.
