IC Engine for Passenger Cars

AVL's development activities in the field of passenger cars stretch from the core area of engine development to the drivetrain and the complete vehicle.

AVL has a comprehensive network of technical experts to rely on, when forming individual project teams that include both customers and suppliers. From the prototype onward, AVL ensures the best possible customer support through to series production thanks to the commitment of its highly experienced production engineers.
This guarantees a perfect fusion of technology and application engineering that is oriented towards real practice.
For reaching this target, it is essential to be thoroughly familiar with the entire development process from design through to series production. AVL's development process, which is based on decades of experience and is continuously updated, enables a seamless connection to the customer and his own processes to be achieved. This allows the customer to participate in a flexible definition of the development program.

AVL Approach

Diesel and gasoline engines still have significant potential for combustion refinement. The emphasis is on developing the highest possible fuel economy at best performance and perfect driveability, while focusing on lowest possible engine-out emission. For its development work, AVL is using sophisticated test methodology and the latest test bed technology. By applying the best suitable development tools and the most advanced methodology, the optimum result is found faster and more reliably.
