In vehicles based on a motorsports design, the powertrain has particularly tough requirements to meet. And the bar is constantly being raised: Modern plug-in hybrids need more and more drive components to fit the limited installation space, with the components required to produce more and more power without compromising reliability.
Particulate matter doesn’t stand a chance: as of September 1 of this year, all new Porsche models with gasoline engines will be successively outfitted with particulate filters, with six- and eight-cylinder models receiving two filters, one for each cylinder block.
Porsche Engineering has developed a fast-charging solution and for the first time, economic viability and user-friendly design are brought together in a charging solution that will help electromobility gain greater acceptance.
Porsche is actively pursuing the future of electromobility—where the journey is going and where challenges await is discussed in this interview with Otmar Bitsche, Director of Development Electrics, Electronics, Electromobility at Porsche and Michael Kiefer, Director of High-Voltage Systems at Porsche Engineering.
