Hyperdrive - Hybrid Driveline

Production Readiness Competition

Using hybrid propulsion to downsize engines while retaining performance

Project Highlights

  • Development of a hybrid powertrain and e-clutch for vehicles with manual gearboxes, enabling engine downsizing
  • The technology offers flexibility through selection of different drive modes for full EV, hybrid or conventional combustion engine propulsion
  • Powertrain engineered an fitted in a demonstration vehicle – knowledge gained can be applied to other vehicles
  • Potential for fuel economy and CO2 savings across a range of platforms
  • £500,000 project value with £250,000 funding from the APC
