Suzuki to Jointly Develop 2-speed EV Transmission with Inmotive
Suzuki Motor Corporation (hereinafter “Suzuki”) has signed a joint development agreement with Inmotive Inc. (Headquarters: Ontario, Canada; CEO: Paul Bottero; hereinafter “Inmotive”) for the development of a 2-speed EV transmission for a future Suzuki electric vehicle.
Inmotive was founded in 2010 in Toronto, Canada. They developed the IngearTM 2-speed transmission, a lightweight, compact, and efficient technology to enhance the performance of EV powertrain units. Inmotive aims to accelerate the global evolution to affordable zero-emission mobility and play an important role in mitigating climate change.
With this joint development agreement for the 2-speed EV transmission, Suzuki believes that it has the possibility of extending electric vehicle range through efficient use of motor torque while also lowering costs due to using a smaller electric powertrain unit and improving driving performance in various driving scenes.
Suzuki will continue to build relationships with companies that possess unique technologies, to accelerate the development of next generation mobility and provide a variety of transport solutions that will benefit people and society.
