Efficient Future Mobility: Schaeffler Shows Solutions For Reducing Fuel Consumption And Meeting CAFE Standards In Detroit

During the press conference, Schaeffler will present different components and systems in the "mobile development platform" of its Efficient Future Mobility North America demonstration vehicle. The concept vehicle is based on a current mid-size SUV that is popular in North America and – as is the case with the majority of North American vehicles – features an automatic transmission with a torque converter.

"The solutions on display take the market-specific demands and customer requirements in North America into account," explains Warmbold.

The Schaeffler innovations integrated in the Efficient Future Mobility North America vehicle include: engine start-stop solutions customized for vehicles with torque converter automatic transmissions; an innovative, individually adaptable thermal management module; and an all-wheel drive (AWD) disconnect clutch system for minimizing friction losses in the drive trains of AWD vehicles. Overall, these solutions enable an additional improvement in fuel efficiency of up to 15 percent.
