Parallel hybrid propulsion system

Parallel components

We deliver propulsion and power management performance with innovative electrification products and solutions that advance vehicle mobility, efficiency, and capability. We widely market HybriDrive® series propulsion to the transit market and have developed HybriDrive parallel propulsion specifically for truck vocations such as refuse, construction, and delivery.

HybriDrive Parallel systems use both simplified and proven components and controls. The system is based on a single electric machine integrated with the engine and the transmission and can be installed with minimal impact to the vehicle. Propulsion is enhanced through an optimized blending of power from a conventional power source and from the electrical power source. Our hybrid electric truck system’s energy management and control capabilities ensure all energy flow — such as propulsion and braking energy recuperation — occurs in the most efficient fashion, resulting in lower fuel consumption.

Hybrid power management solutions for rail

Locomotive solutions

We offer power management capabilities and product solutions for the rail market. Our products provide hybrid power management for more than 8,000 hybrid locomotives in the U.S. alone.

Light rail

Our experience in power management has been helping urban transport with solutions for better fuel savings and decreased emissions for more than 20 years. Our hybrid train propulsion system incorporates efficient energy storage for optimal operation of the engine at constant speeds and load but also allows brake energy recovery for increased savings.
