Hybrid Supercar Transmission System Produced

Posted on 07. Dec, 2012 by in News

If you are one among those consumers who are day-dreaming about a hybrid sports car, then here’s something that would make your senses to get fully enlightened. As per the latest reports, hybrid power is gradually making its way in the right direction of sports vehicles, and hence the dream of a high-performing hybrid sports car could soon become a reality.

Recently, a leading high-performance sports car, and race vehicle gearbox expert, Xtrac has developed a hybridized auto-manual gearbox system (H-AMT), and it has been nominated as 1010 H-AMT. This latest dedicated gearbox is expected to have the capability to permit all the upcoming luxury super sports vehicles to precisely meet the standard emission requirement of around 95 gram per kilometer CO2, which is more likely to be initiated by the European legislators sometime within 2020.

Xtrac’s Auto and Engineering Business General Manager, Clive Woolmer, along with Chris Cholmeley, the main engineer, are expected to provide the particulars of the latest gearbox during the 1st week of December 2012 at the eleventh International CTi Exhibition and Symposium , which is more likely to take place from 3rd to 6th December 2012 in Berlin. It has been said that the prototype-ready new transmission system is targeted at car producers contesting, especially in the high progress segment of premium luxury super road vehicles, which consists of limousines, and exotics.

The latest 1010 H-AMT suits the identical compact gearbox envelope as the 1007 transmission system of the firm, with its exceptional torque driving potential, and ground-breaking transverse gear group orientation, as provided to Pagani Motors for the new mid power-train Huayra super sports car. The company strongly thinks that its characteristic transverse gearbox arrangement lends itself, specifically robust to hybridization, and provides a propelling resolution to the inclination of the supercar segment for maintaining high power, multiple-cylinder power-trains, while precisely meeting the upcoming 2020 standard emission requirements.

The electric car speed limit has been actually fixed marginally below 95-miles per hour, wrapping a majority of speed ranges with the exception of unhampered German Autobahns, permitting torque infill equal to fourth gear, particularly at times of high-performance speeding up, and in all transmission system’s gears up to nearly threshold speed at times of low-speed driving, thus greatly enhancing the overall fuel efficiency of the hybrid sports car.

The word “torque infill” associates to the use of extra torque by means of the gearbox system to the vehicle road wheel at times of a shift in the gear.
