Designed to be energy-efficient and safe, the compact powertrain enables flexible scalability. The development consists of two basic units, including a power unit (with an onboard charger, junction box, inverter and DC-to-DC converter) and a motor unit.

Panasonic claims the platform will reduce costs and lead time for vehicle development by scaling up or down the combination of basic units to meet specific vehicle specifications such as size, speed and torque.
