29 March, 2012

Sevcon, which develops microprocessor-based controls for electric and hybrid vehicles in Gateshead, UK, as entered into a cooperation agreement with Singapore-based Flextronics Automotive to provide hybrid and electric vehicle drivetrain systems to automotive customers in Europe.

The companies will combine Sevcon’s motor controllers and onboard systems integration products with Flextronics’ high-voltage DC/DC converter, charger and battery management technologies, to produce complete drivetrains for hybrid and pure electric vehicles ranging from scooters to passenger cars and trucks.

“Partnering with Flextronics Automotive will enable us to scale our business to meet growing product demand in Germany and central Europe far more rapidly than we could on our own,” says Sevcon president and CEO, Matt Boyle. “We look forward to completing larger deals with major automotive OEMs that have the potential to dramatically accelerate our growth.”
