In 2022, we consolidated our e-Drive expertise under the Helix brand. It is the culmination of 12 years’ experience building high-performance electric motors and inverters.
Between 2009 and 2015, we developed our first motors and inverters for specialist electric powertrain applications including top-level motorsport and some of the first hybrid hypercars. Their requirements were characterised by extreme duty-cycles and exposure to vibration, yet they demanded the highest possible power density. The result was a range of electric powertrain solutions offering an unmatched combination of product performance, efficiency and robustness.
Today, our motorsport heritage continues to inspire and drive our work, the relentless search for advantage among our focussed, multi-disciplinary teams powering the innovation needed to maintain motor and inverter performance leadership.
Meanwhile we have invested to increase the accessibility of our products and deliver high-performance electric powertrains to more clients at greater scale. Key to this goal, our Scalable Core Technology embodies a unique DNA, combining high performance with exhaustive design for manufacture (DFM), and the processes required for series production to the highest industry quality levels.
Scalable Core Technology is available at three product levels, Stock, Configured and Custom, enabling clients to access the right level of customisation to match their requirements with high confidence and minimum non-recurring engineering (NRE) and leadtime. Headlining this investment, we created our new Shenley Technical Centre and commissioned an IATF16949-compliant series production Flexible Manufacturing Facility (FMF).
