Technology rules: Chinese Techrules unveiled its Turbine-Recharging Electric Vehicle (TREV) in Geneva. Its hybrid system comprises six motors powered by a battery, which is in turn charged by a micro-turbine fuelled by liquid or gaseous fuel. Specs set peak power at 768 kW and top speed at 350 kph. All-electric range is estimated at 93 miles (150 km), while 80 litres of i.e. aviation kerosene extend range to an estimated 1,243 miles (2,000 km).,,

ZF-electric-axle-motorModular electric drive: ZF presents an integrated electric axle motor. The modular approach makes it suitable for rear and front-wheel drives as well as electric, hybrid and fuel cell vehicles. The asynchronous motor develops up to 150 kW and will be seen in action by 2018.

Exhaust energy recovery: The Energy Heat Recovery System by Faurecia recovers otherwise lost exhaust energy for the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid. A gas or fluid heat exchanger is integrated in the exhaust line and transfers up to 3 kW of energy that is used to warm the engine and cabin.

Super Truck II: The DoE is launching an 80m dollar funding opportunity. 12m dollars from the Super Truck II initiative are dedicated to plug-in powertrain technologies for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. Bosch, Cummin and McLaren are to benefit.,
