Instead of finding ways to engineer better mechanical components for an internal combustion engine, R&D is now focused on creating efficient electric powertrains.

To meet customer demands, ZF plans to hone in on efficiency, performance, and cost, among other major requirements drivers may have. The company's next-generation platform includes the electric motor, power electronics, transmission, and control software to help it all run properly.

As noted by Stephan von Schuckmann, member of the ZF Board of Management, in a press statement: "The great interest of manufacturers in our products in both the passenger car and commercial vehicle sectors is confirmed by our high order backlog in the high-voltage business. With the next generation of electric drives, we are consistently continuing our strategy of developing sustainable and efficient mobility for the future."

Automotive OEMs will be able to accelerate the electrification of their auto portfolios, while car drivers enjoy better range efficiency, increased power, and shorter battery charging times. ZF has an 800-volt technology that will go into production before the end of 2022, with the company's new generation of e-drives expected to reach the market in 2025 as a complete system.

Since automakers have struggled with supply chain issues - and shortages - there is a perfect opportunity for companies such as ZF.
