Swedish translation:tillverkning av kraftöverföringskomponeter
Explanation:
According to references (see for instance below or search "powertrain" + dictionary on the Internet) it is a physical "thing" not a method. It cannot be "drivlina" since this includes the motor.

However I do find sources that claim that the powertrain does include the motor... So - there seems to be some confusion in the English speaking world re. this!

See:

If it includes manufacturing of motors, the above sentence should be:
Tillverkning av drivlinor
