On January 22, Chinese technology giant applied a new patent for "reducer, powertrain and vehicle", according to data provider Qichacha.

The reducer can be applied to pure electric vehicles, hybrid vehicles, electric vehicles with extended-range technology, plug-in hybrid vehicles, and other new energy vehicles.

The reducer realizes power-shock-free gear shifting by eliminating synchronizing rings and controlling turning angle and speed. It shortens the shift stroke and synchronization time, saves cost, and solves the problem of long shifting time and shock-prone shifting process of synchronized shifting achieved by synchronization ring friction.
