About Us

GKN Driveline is the market leader in the development and delivery of contemporary and electrified driveline systems and solutions.

With a comprehensive global footprint, we design, develop, manufacture and integrate an extensive range of driveline technologies for over 90% of the world’s car manufacturers.

A market leader in CV Joint Systems, all-wheel drive and electric mobility, our technologies feature in everything from the smallest ultra low-cost car to the most sophisticated and dynamic premium vehicle. Our capabilities span two-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, hybrid or pure electric vehicle architectures.

At the Forefront of Innovation

Driveline manufacturers are at the forefront of huge changes in the automotive industry. While the media is focusing the attention of the public and marketeers on autonomous driving, the big shift in the industry is actually a consolidation of platforms that have significant implications for manufacturing and sourcing strategies.

With megaplatforms underpinning a huge variety of different brands, vehicles and powertrains, automakers want innovations that improve efficiency and that can scale in mass-production, globally.

These powerful market forces are actually pretty favourable for GKN Driveline.

For decades the company has been a leading supplier to automakers of essential driveline components and all-wheel drive systems. Following a series of high-profile contract wins for more advanced systems on some high-profile vehicle launches, the company has emerged as the leading supplier of both torque vectoring and eDrive systems.
