Passenger Cars _TI

Passenger Cars

Powertrain solutions from conventional Gasoline or Diesel engines & transmissions up to complex Hybrids and Battery Electric Vehicles, from single components up to complete systems.

AVL Approach

Comprehensive system optimization utilizing synergy effects between the single powertrain elements provides leading edge technology with most attractive trade-off between cost, performance / driveability and fuel economy / CO2.

  • Upfront system configuration incl. concept definition & operation strategies
  • Design & simulation, prototype procurement & manufacturing
  • Supplier management, production & plant engineering
  • Combustion, exhaust gas aftertreatment & mechanical development
  • Reliability engineering & warranty cost prediction
  • Control strategy & software development
  • Calibration, driveabilty & NVH optimization
  • Production launch & worldwide field support

Benefits at a Glance

AVL is an independent engineering services company with no high volume production intentions. Our long-term expertise in the field of powertrain development and excellent relationship to most automotive suppliers enable AVL to be an ideal partner for the development of advanced powertrain propulsion systems. The experienced team has developed powertrain solutions for OEMs that range from powertrain concept design (including demonstration vehicle builds) through series production. Additionally, internal research projects guarantee a head start in the field of new and advanced technologies. Results are innovative solutions for the end customer.
