Driven - - Tech Tune-Up -

Along with its cut­ting-edge tyre tech­nolo­gies, Con­ti­nen­tal is one of the lead­ing elec­tri­fi­ca­tion pioneers. Th­ese range from 48-volt mild hy­brid ap­pli­ca­tions to high-volt­age pow­er­trains for elec­tric and hy­brid ve­hi­cles. Con­ti­nen­tal’s com­po­nents have reached a high level of prod­uct ma­tu­rity and are used among other ap­pli­ca­tions for high­per­for­mance, high-volt­age pow­er­train mod­ules. With its com­pact di­men­sions and low weight, th­ese mod­ules set new bench­marks in terms of power den­sity. Con­ti­nen­tal’s 48V tech­nol­ogy achieves doc­u­mented fuel sav­ings of ap­prox­i­mately 21% in real-world ur­ban driv­ing. Con­ti­nen­tal will also be pre­sent­ing a new demon­stra­tor ve­hi­cle, the Su­per Clean Hy­brid Diesel, which shows how 48V hy­bridi­s­a­tion and in­no­va­tive cat­alytic con­verter so­lu­tions can be used to com­bine in­creased ef­fi­ciency with si­mul­ta­ne­ous re­duc­tions of up to 60% in real-world NOx emis­sions.
