SKF Believes Electrification Has Power

Electrification of vehicles is key to reduce CO2 in cities and SKF produced a video to showcase this.

Bearing company SKF explained fully electric vehicles on the market today boast an average well-to-wheel C02 reduction of about 20 percent compared to traditional powertrains; that C02 reduction is even higher for those electric vehicles powered by renewable electricity.

SKF stated the company is committed to vehicle electrification and is pushing for more clean, renewable energy to drive EV’s globally – both in the automotive and industrial market.

In an effort to cut back on congestion, noise and C02 emissions in the city centre, Paris has put a car-sharing program into gear. This is done with the help of nearly 3000 Bolloré Bluecars, all featuring SKF bearings and sensor bearing solutions in the electric powertrain system.

In the video named Electrification has Power, SKF aims to shed light on knowledge engineer Carole Girardin and the E-Powertrain team behind this successful project. The video can be accessed in short or long form through the following links:
