Combustion Development

The powertrain performance and emission development business is driven by increasingly restricted emission and fuel consumption requirements as well as increased performance demands.

AVL Approach

Development - and in particular combustion development - has 60 years of history at AVL. AVL developed the direct injected diesel combustion engine from the very beginning for all engine sizes and applications. Consequently, we pre-developed the first series production HSDI worldwide. AVL is also one of the pioneers in gasoline GDI and TGDI development. Today we combine this key know-how with aftertreatment and hybrid components to find the overall optimum for the future powertrain.
 
AVL provides experienced performance and emission development staff in the fields of:
  • Gasoline passenger cars
  • Diesel passenger cars
  • On-road commercial vehicles
  • Off-road commercial vehicles
  • Exhaust aftertreatment
  • Transmission
  • Hybrid
This expertise is available across all our global locations and includes professional project management in combination with high grade facilities, or, if required, on-site at the customer premises.
