Recorded On: 05/25/2022

As EVs continue to evolve and OEMs convert the majority of their fleets to electric power, automotive aftermarket companies have a vast opportunity to capitalize on the EV market. In order for manufacturers, product developers, and businesses to seek out these new opportunities, they must first understand how EV powertrains work.

Join Brent Dreher, NVH/Durability Manager at Faraday Future, during this live webinar to learn the major components of an EV powertrain, the functions of each system, and how batteries, motors, and charging systems are evolving.

The session will leave you better prepared to understand the needs of your customers as they transition over to an EV powertrain, and it will help you create a strategy to meet the needs of future EV consumers.
