Efficient Multi-Mode Transmission For Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles

Cover Story October 2019 GKN Efficient Multi-Mode Transmission Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles

A new type of hybrid transmission, which is also called Multi-Mode Transmissions (MMT) or Dedicated Hybrid Transmissions, works only through the combination of an internal combustion engine with one or more electric motors.

As part of a joint project sponsored by the Federal German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, GKN and the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences have together developed an efficient MMT concept for plug-in hybrid vehicles. On the basis of test bench experiments already carried out, the concept is to be further developed to series production readiness.
