Otto and electro
In automobile manufacture, hybrid drives usually combine a combustion engine with an electric motor. Both drives can take on different tasks such as supporting acceleration via boosting, recovering energy during braking (recuperation) or charging a battery – through to pure electric driving.
The GETRAG dual clutch transmission can be hybridised according to the torque-split principle. This means the original drivetrain does not have to be changed as the electric motor is mounted directly on the transmission.
