Testing hybrid engine technology Essentially a vehicle's powertrain is the system that powers the car - traditionally a combustion engine - and transfers that power to the transmission, drive shaft and finally to the wheels of the car.

Electrification of the powertrain is shaping the future of developments in vehicle technology – along with influence from sustainable energy drivers to push high fuel efficiency or to be compliant with relevant CO2 emission legislation. In addition, key technology drivers are now focusing on improved drivability and durability along with newly applied techniques such as inverter technologies to power the electric motor or used to charge the battery as a result of regenerative breaking.
