DETROIT, Oct. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- American Axle & Manufacturing's Electric Driveline Technology has been named a 2020 Automotive News PACE Awards finalist. The Automotive News PACE Awards recognize supplier advances in automotive technologies and processes that have reached the market. Jaguar's first all-electric production vehicle, the I-PACE, features AAM's all-wheel-drive front and rear Electric Driveline units.
"AAM's Electric Drive technology is designed for optimal power density providing high performance in a compact package," said David C. Dauch, AAM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We are incredibly honored that Automotive News recognized this work on the Jaguar I-PACE and thank the judges for naming AAM Electric Driveline technology a PACE finalist."
AAM's Electric Driveline Technology delivers 394 kW of high-performance AWD power and 700 Nm of torque via two electric drive units. AAM's system is designed to maximize power but minimize system space and help contribute to the vehicle's low center of gravity. AAM's independently controlled drive units provide immediate torque and all-wheel drive for optimal control and maximum safety. The award-winning powertrain accelerates the I-PACE to 60 mph while producing no tailpipe CO2 or particulates.
AAM designed and engineered the I-PACE Electric Driveline system at the company's Trollhättan Technical Center in Trollhättan, Sweden. The system is built in Poland at AAM's Świdnica Manufacturing Facility, which is dedicated to producing precision-engineered AAM driveline systems and components.
PACE award winners will be announced at the Automotive News PACE Awards ceremony on March 23, 2020, at the Max M. and Marjorie S. Fisher Music Center in Detroit.
