Brose North America has developed a full electric oil pump, with the company noting stop-start engine solutions are estimated to increase fuel economy by as much as 6%.
“Brose has truly emerged as a leader in transmission electrification,” said DTA North America customer team director, Richard Illingworth. “We used our product knowledge and grasp of market trends to create solutions that are flexible and quick to meet evolving customer needs.
“When combined with the eOP, the stop-start system shuts down the internal combustion engine when stopped in traffic, saving fuel while maintaining transmission oil pressure.
“The eOP delivers a significant improvement in driveability compared to mechanical methods of maintaining oil pressure.”
