Diesel Hybrids - The Logical Path towards Hybridisation 2009-28-0046

Concerns on emissions and their effects on climate changes are currently the drivers behind automotive technology. Diesels have been faring better with CO2 and fuel economy norms. However the state of art diesel engines emerging from various OEMs and trend as far as marginal improvements in the emissions and fuel economy potentials indicate that diesels are at the limits. In this scenario, diesel hybrid electric powertrains have shown promise to push the limits even further and offer the ideal platform to maximize benefits of hybridization. This paper shows that the diesel hybrids are the logical way to bridge the gap between conventional vehicles and electric vehicles.
