The Schwarz-booth became a „Schwarz-Motodrom“: The visitors could experience on the big Carrera-Racetrack what we are building in reality: Electric motors for nearly all vehicles as cars, industrial trucks, snowmobiles or boats and so on.

Schwarz at the eCar-Tec 2015 - big success

We first presented the Mazda MX5 converted to a fully functional electric car. Also our currently strongest electric motor for conversion the Porsche 911 to an electric car. 

Our electric motors are designed especially for electric mobility: 
• Low-voltage (24 – 144 V) and high-voltage technology (200 – 900 V): always the right motor!
• In air-cooled and water-cooled versions.
• Can be attached directly to the gearboxes of the respective vehicle types.
• For vehicle types from small vehicles through classic cars to large vehicles. The range is constantly being expanded.
• The modular design allows rapid adaptation to new vehicle models.
• Performances up to 140 kW and 400 Nm possible.
• Also for agriculture and forestry.

Enjoy the advantages of e-mobility:
- Environmentally friendly mode of transport
- Zero emissions
- No fine dust pollution
- Comfortable, smooth ride
- Quiet mode of transport (no engine noise)

Top 100 seal for Schwarz - outstandingly innovative

Schwarz Elektromotoren is one of the most innovative medium-sized German companies /
Tribute by Ranga Yogeshwar

Success through entrepreneurial vision: At the German medium-sized business summit on 26th June 2015, Schwarz Elektromotoren GmbH was distinguished as one of the most innovative medium-sized German companies. “Top 100” mentor Ranga Yogeshwar honoured the company from Rehau with the “Top 100” seal, which has been awarded for over 20 years. Before this, Schwarz Elektromotoren underwent a two-stage academic analysis process.

In the “Top 100”, Schwarz Elektromotoren GmbH stood out particularly for its innovation strength and for the promotion of innovation by the top management. Since owner and Managing Director Markus Schwarz became independent with the company 15 years ago, he has developed one new product after another. With success: the “Top 100” company generated half of its turnover in 2014 with innovations and product optimisations, which it launched on the market ahead of the competition. Markus Schwarz generally works on the innovations himself – supported by three or four designers.

Sales of one of his newest developments, a battery-powered electric motor that works with virtually no wear and adjusts the wings of wind turbines, have now reached over 60,000. At eCarTec 2014 in Munich, the engineer presented his latest idea: the prototype of a water-cooled electric motor with integrated transmission.
