Hybrid Design

Hybrid powertrain applications combine the best of two worlds – with the right emphasis between combustion engine and e-motor (micro, mild or full hybrid) the achievement of stringent emission legislation and fuel consumption targets is possible. Within this context the optimal solution for a specific application does not only depend on targets for emissions, performance, efficiency, reliability and comfort, but also on its costs and its manufacturability. AVL's engineering approach takes all these topics into account. Based on our vast experience in customer projects and internal R&D activities, we strongly rely on a multidisciplinary function-oriented system approach to gain synergy effects to design leading edge solutions for every purpose and application.
