Follow-up report on the 14th International CTI Symposium
7-10 December 2015, Berlin, Germany
The next generation of hybrid transmissions
At previous CTI Symposia, it became increasingly clear that hybrid transmissions call for an integrated view of powertrains. As a logical consequence, DHTs (Dedicated Hybrid Transmissions) were defined and discussed in public for the first time in Berlin. DHTs are a new breed of hybrid transmissions, and more than just an add-on solution. Two other forward-looking topics were also in the spotlight in Berlin: the impact of autonomous driving on transmission and drive technology, and the question of what energy forms tomorrow’s mobility needs. There is still ample scope for development – not just for electric cars, but for fossil and regeneratively produced fuels too.
Futureproof drive concepts – more efficiency through a holistic approach
The ongoing discussion on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions underscores how important it is to develop futureproof drive concepts.
Innovative hybrid concept for compact cars
Small, economical and affordable – that’s how customers like their city cars.
Yet despite the wide range of models, pressure on the international automobile transmission industry is growing. The reasons are future government ceilings for CO2 emissions, and intensifying competition from manufacturers in emerging markets.
