Summary
From the technical point of view, in the last years full HEVs have shown to be a viable short-medium term solution to ensure at the same time:
  • the Social and Environmental Needs: lower consumption (with the related CO2 emissions) and acoustic/regulated emissions reduction
  • the Customer Demands: enhanced performance, improved driveability, high thermal comfort.
In this field, nowadays, the European market, in comparison with North American and Far East, is the most difficult one for a wide hybrids penetration due to the large diffusion of low cost and low consumption diesel base solutions.
Hi-CEPS aims to operate, with an effective synergy approach on the devices, a strong step forward to reduce this gap with European environmental friendly and fun to drive solutions at an acceptable cost and customised for the European application conditions.
