  • Patent number: 10837525
    Abstract: A motor vehicle transmission for coupling an electric machine to a drivetrain of an electrically driveable motor vehicle. The motor vehicle transmission includes a planetary transmission for converting a torque that is introducible by the electric machine. An internal gear of the planetary transmission has an input toothed gear for forming a spur gear stage with a drive shaft of the electric machine. A brake immobilizes a sun gear of the planetary transmission with a static housing. A clutch rotationally conjointly connects the sun gear to the internal gear. The brake and the clutch at least partially overlap as viewed in a radial or axial direction. By virtue of the overlap, it is possible for axial and radial structural space, respectively, to be saved, such that a motor vehicle transmission with a small structural space requirement is made possible.
