As Seen In Automotive Design & Production

The Bio-Hybrid. Electric motor meets human power. Jeff Hemphill, CTO of Schaeffler North America, says the vehicle is a “last-mile solution.” Schaeffler has spun off a company that will produce these vehicles.

Schaeffler Addresses E-Mobility
The changing landscape requires not only new approaches to powertrains—but even new types of vehicles. Here’s how one supplier is addressing these changes.

Euro Consortium Developing Better Laser Surfacing
The objective of ultraSURFACE is to develop equipment that will reduce surface processing time to a tenth of conventional approaches—and costs by half.

The all-new Audi A8. For the first time, Audi is offering the car as a mild hybrid, standard.

Audi Goes Electric
The electrification of the powertrain is now standard for Audi. And it is a matter of course in Formula E.

Race on Sunday, Plug-In on Monday
Formula E, the electric vehicle (EV) offshoot of Formula One racing, completed its third season in dramatic fashion with back-to-back races in Montreal in late July.

Innovation for Comfortable Rides
As the pursuit of greater fuel efficiency, whether it’s for achieving miles-per-gallon increases or carbon dioxide emissions decreases, continues with seeming increased vigor, it seems as though “energy on demand” is something of a mantra, whether this means providing energy to throttle response or simply to provide what’s needed to actuate something only when needed.

Improving Powertrains— Conventional and Advanced
Schaeffler Group makes products ranging from bearings to differentials. Here’s a look at some of its recent developments.
