General Motors plans to introduce a hybrid version of its popular light-duty full-size (Silverado/Sierra) pickup truck. The program imperative of minimal vehicle architecture change drove a highly integrated powertrain solution. The hybrid powertrain features a novel, compact method of integrating an electric motor/generator between the largely unchanged engine and transmission, preserving their locations. From the targeted hybrid functions, power and energy specifications are derived. Specific design aspects and performance examples relating to the motor/generator packaging, torque converter, and overall vehicle driveabiltiy are discussed.
