Energy Mix

A hybrid drive comprises a power source such as an internal combustion engine or a fuel cell and an energy storage device such as a battery or an ultra capacitor. With the ELFA traction system, vehicle manufacturers can address all of their requirements regarding the energy mix.

Hybrid with ICE

  • Power comes from an Internal Combustion Engine

  • Energy storage captures braking energy

  • ICE and energy storage power can be blended to drive the traction motor

  • Intelligent energy management reduce fuel consumption and emissions

  • Reduced noise and passenger comfort

  • Stop-start capability allows all electric operation for demanding inner-city travel
