Omit a large number of transmission parts to make the vehicle structure simpler.
For the traditional vehicle, clutch, gearbox, transmission shaft, differential and actuator are essential, and these components not only light weight, so that the vehicle structure is more complex, there is also need regular maintenance and failure rate problem. But the wheel motor is a good solution to this problem. In addition to the simpler structure, vehicles with hub motors can achieve better space utilization and drive efficiency.
A variety of complex driving modes can be realized
Because of the characteristics of a single wheel motor with independent wheel drive, so whether or four-wheel drive drive form precursor, after it can be easily realized, AWD drive in wheel motor vehicles is very easy. At the same time can pass around the wheel hub motor at different speed or even reverse similar implementation of differential tracked vehicle steering, greatly reduce the turning radius of the vehicle, under special circumstances can almost achieve the steering (but now wear on the vehicle steering mechanism and the tire is large), is very valuable for special vehicles.
Easy to adopt a variety of new energy vehicles technology
Many new energy models are powered by electricity, so the wheel motor drive has come in handy. Whether it is a pure electric and fuel cell electric vehicles, or extended range electric vehicle, can be used in wheel motor as the main driving force; even for hybrid models, can also be used as motor starting or rapid acceleration of the power, it is the use of a machine. At the same time, many technologies of new energy vehicles, such as braking energy recovery (i.e. regenerative braking), can also be easily implemented on hub motor drive models.http://www.neo-powers.com/
