“We are pleased to partner with Emotors and value the opportunity to
support them in one of their product lines,” said Jeff Lowinger,
president, eMobility. “Eaton’s power-dense inverters help deliver a
safe, reliable and comfortable driving experience.”
Eaton will provide its power-dense inverters to Emotors, who will
integrate it with the motor and ship the finished system to its
customers for assembly into the battery-electric vehicle.
Leveraging Eaton’s expertise managing high-voltage power, eMobility
developed the vehicle inverters with a power density of 35 kilowatts per

electric, plug-in hybrid, hybrid electric and mild hybrid electric.
Eaton’s inverters can be used in all types of electric vehicles, as well
as other alternative fuel vehicles, such as hydrogen fuel cell cars and
