DETROIT – May 30, 2023 - - American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings, Inc. (AAM), (NYSE: AXL) is helping grow young engineering talent and improve electric vehicle efficiency through a Visionary Sponsorship of the EcoCAR EV Challenge. In the four-year student competition, university teams compete by engineering next generation battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and use automation and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) to create new vehicle features and technologies that decarbonize the automotive industry.

“AAM has a long history of supporting STEM education at all levels and helping grow the next generation of automotive talent,” said David C. Dauch, AAM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “As a Visionary Sponsor of the EcoCAR EV Challenge, we are helping students learn about sustainable mobility and fuel their engineering passion.”

AAM’s four-year sponsorship is comprised of financial contributions as well as “In-Kind Credits” such as software and engineering support. Most significantly, AAM is supplying five college teams with its premier 3-in-1 configurable platform electric drive unit. This next-generation EDU combines a high-speed motor, compact gearbox and integrated inverter, offering a 40-percent reduction in packaging space. AAM’s EDU provides best-in-class improvements in mass and volumetric efficiency, power density and reduced power loss. It also has the potential to improve range – further helping EVs create a carbon footprint advantage.

Through its sponsorship, AAM is developing relationships with premier engineering talent – a total of more than 2,600 diverse students from across North America are participating in the EcoCAR EV Challenge. AAM plans to host a winter workshop at its Detroit Campus in early 2024 where students can see firsthand the innovative products and processes being developed by AAM engineers.
