The new generation of BMW electric drives provide a superior value in terms of power density, efficiency and performance. Our range of high efficiency electric motors and generators is able to cover a wide spectrum of applications.
BMW Synchronous Electric Motor.
The newly developed synchronous electric motor dazzles with enormous torque that remains constant from acceleration to maximum speed – for sustainable mobility with overwhelming agility. The electric motor is a proprietary development by the BMW Group and available within a power range from 75 to 125 kW.
Another convincing feature of the permanently excited motor is its smooth running and low vibrations, achieving the high standards expected of a premium powertrain.
Main characteristics of BMW synchronous electric motor:
High bandwidth with nearly constant power
Minimization of magnet and overall mass
High efficiency in wide load area
BMW High-Voltage Starter Generator.
The 15 kW belt driven electric motor acts both as a generator to supply the high voltage battery with electric power and as a starter to perform a smooth engine start.
