The powertrain combines challenges from mechanical and electrical engineering. To implement wheel-hub motors, the electrical motors and the gearbox must be tightly packaged and the design must be well-coordinated. Adding to the interdisciplinary character of the assembly, cooling and control systems needed to be designed from scratch as well.
About our Powertrain
The powertrain pushes our car forward and has a great impact on the overall car performance. For the first time in the history of KaRaT we use a 4WD concept for the 2021 season. This enables us to develop much more precise power delivery in all situations. This search for optimal performance goes hand in hand with the control units inside the drivetrain and provides exciting new challenges.
