New Electric Powertrain Development Facility

Ilmor is pleased to announce the completion of a new EV powertrain development facility at our site in Brixworth.  This rig has been designed to allow Ilmor to conduct performance, efficiency and attribute development programmes for motorsport and on-highway customers, with rapid data acquisition and high levels of precision.

The new facility allows the development of EDU and e-axel systems and includes a pair of wheel speed AC dynamometers, fluid conditioning, power analysis and battery simulation.  It allows Ilmor to build on its race-winning expertise in traditional combustion engines, electronics, and manufacturing.

“We are very pleased to have successfully commissioned this new facility at Brixworth, which strengthens our capability and allows Ilmor Engineering to develop and test EV and PHEV powertrain for our motorsport and automotive customers.  Along with our eMachine, Power Electronics, Design, Simulation and world-class Manufacturing facility, Ilmor Engineering is now able to offer a concept to finished product service in both ICE and EV powertrain.”  Steve O’Connor, Managing Director of Ilmor Engineering

Ilmor offers a wide range of EV and ICE powertrain design, simulation, manufacturing, research and development solutions for motorsport, on-highway, off-highway and marine sectors, both in the UK and USA.
