Dana and UQM recently announced collaboration on the UQM PowerPhase® DT Drivetrain. This project has led to the important next step of adding the central Vehicle Control Unit (VCU) to the UQM system. UQM will now be offering its customer base more key components of the electric vehicle drivetrain.

This new Dana VCU will have key features such as torque based control architecture, vehicle stability system integration, battery management, regeneration, and thermal management and will eliminate the need for UQM’s customers to source, program and supply the central vehicle controller on their own.

Both companies will be presenting the merits of a combined UQM/Dana product offering at the upcoming Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo 2016, the premier USA showcase for electric and hybrid vehicle technology and innovation. The show will held on September 13-15, in Novi, Michigan.



Dana LLC has been in the United States since 1990. The OpenECU product family (Model-Based development Software Platform) is Dana’s signature product family and by 2019 there were more than 40,000 OpenECU based ECUs on the road in production vehicle applications.
