ConMet Partners to Develop Electric In-Wheel Drive System

May 02, 2017

Congratulations is due to our customer Consolidated Metco on their newest venture. The company has partnered with Protean Electric on an electric in-wheel drive system that provides hybrid-electric solutions for the medium and heavy-duty commercial vehicle markets.

The ConMet/Protean in-wheel electric drive system will deliver a robust and efficient hybrid propulsion system designed for commercial trucks, tractors, and trailers. This will enable ConMet’s OEM and fleet customers to address the continued tightening of safety and emissions regulations, increasing demands for improved fuel efficiency, weight and drivetrain packaging optimization. It also addresses trends with vehicle demands for long-haul and urban delivery.

The jointly developed electric wheel end system is compatible with existing vehicles. Other goals for the product include vehicle packaging advantages, reduced complexity, and minimized drivetrain losses for truck, tractor, and trailer applications.

ConMet featured the new electrified hub in its booth at the MidAmerica Trucking Show March 23-25, 2017 in Louisville, KY.
