MAHLE recently received two awards from the Chinese automotive trade media
MAHLE was awarded the “2021 Automotive Innovation Award” for its Inductive Externally Excited Synchronous Machine (IEESM). This innovative magnet-free electric motor requires no rare earths and, due to inductive power transmission, operates wear-free and particularly efficiently at high speeds. The prize is granted by the magazine “AI Automobile Industry”, which is published jointly by the German Vogel Media Group and the China Machinery Industry Information Research Institute. Dr. Bernd Blankenbach, MAHLE China Head of Traction Drive Systems, accepted the award on behalf of MAHLE.
MAHLE also received an award from the trade journal Automotive & Parts. The company won the “2021 China Automotive and Parts Industry Development and Innovation Award” for its innovative chargeBIG charging management system. To expand the charging system into the Chinese market, chargeBIG launched its first hardware demonstration program at the MAHLE Research and Development Center in Changshu this month. Additionally, chargeBIG is developing software tailored to the usage habits of Chinese consumers, which is expected to be released in the first half of 2022.
