  • Publication number: 20200247229
    Abstract: A hybrid drive module (1) for a motor vehicle includes a housing (GG), a torque converter (TC), and an electric machine with a rotor (R) and a stator (S). The rotor (R) is arranged on a rotor carrier (RT), which is fixedly connected to a hub (N). The hub (N) is rotatably supported via at least one first bearing (L1) and is supported in radial and axial directions against a bearing shield (LS). The hub (N) is rotationally fixed to a converter housing (TCH) of the torque converter (TC) via a rivet joint (RI) or a screw connection. A drive train for a motor vehicle including such a hybrid drive module (1) is also provided.
