“CES is the premier event to showcase the full breadth and depth of our innovative solutions and tell our story to a broad range of partners,” said David C.

This includes performance sedans, SUVs, light- and heavy-duty trucks and skateboards, empowering OEMs to create cleaner and more efficient vehicles.”

AAM said it will showcase many of its technologies and products in its booth #6827, located in the West Hall, with a focus on:

Electric Drive Unit (EDU) Technology

AAM will showcase its EDU technology for both hybrid and fully electric powertrains. The Mercedes AMG GT 63 S E Performance sedan will be in the booth, which features AAM’s award-winning EDU providing a power/torque output of 150 kW/204 hp, the company said.

AAM said it will showcase a uniquely-designed battery electric light-duty truck, featuring AAM’s 3-in-1 high-speed EDUs. The light-duty pickup truck, built entirely by AAM engineers from a production ICE platform, features a single 150kW EDU driving the front wheels and a 425kW e-Beam in the rear.
