Magna E-Car Systems

 While the EcoMakers have received help from all of the sponsors, one sponsor has been extremely helpful: Magna E-Car Systems. Magna E-Car Systems is a global supplier of components and systems for hybrid and electric vehicles, which offers a wide array of products including lithium-ion cells and battery packs, electric drive motors, generators, inverters, converters, onboard chargers and powertain control modules.

Purdue was one of the few universities that received an entire motor assembly from Magna E-Car Systems. This integrated motor, inverter, and gearbox unit significantly reduced the effort that our team had to expend in integrating the electric drive in the Malibu, and as a result also reduces risk. There are many aspects and complexities in integrating such a component, and by Magna E-Car Systems providing the motor as an integrated the unit, it significantly reduced the complexity of such an integration.

In addition to their generous donation, Magna E-Car Systems was also extremely helpful in providing our team with CAD drawings and quick response via email and telephone conversations. Without this help from Magna E-Car Systems, our team would not have been as successful as we have been during the vehicle design process.
