The Challenge

Find the ideal transmission / powertrain for the future

How does the future powertrain look like?

Which optimum powertrain / transmission system fulfills the needs in terms of efficiency and cost?

Can the existing vehicle be upgraded with the latest transmission & hybrid technology?

How can emission challenges, drivability, NVH or comfort issues be solved?

Handle transmission, powertrain or vehicle work packages in a cost effective manner

Manage internally or outsource transmission design, testing and validation or software, controls and calibration tasks?

Is there a local partner that is able to solve specific transmission problems?

Can tasks be outsourced to cope with vehicle variant complexity?
