When the vehicle is in braking, the brake clutch 6 is merged, while the driving clutch 19 is detached, the wheel motor works as a generator, the feedback brake transmission component feedback the wheel moving energy to the brake pushing component through transmission components, brake pushing component respectively transmits the moving energy to the braking energy reusing component and the brake component, thus realizes the vehicle braking.
