Press Release: Powertrains for the Chinese Market
Challenges in the Development of Global Powertrain Technologies
Possessing a comprehensive insight into the specific economic boundary conditions and the dynamics of the Chinese market is one of the greatest challenges affecting the development of global powertrain technologies. Therefore, during the conference, presentations ranged from topics such as legislation to viable powertrain solutions and technologies. This way more light was shed on the conference theme.
In 1988 AVL hosted the Engine and Environment conference for the first time to provide an independent, neutral and international platform to promote the interdisciplinary discussion of key aspects in engine and vehicle technology in a wider social context – environmental and energy issues as well as legal framework conditions.
AVL is the world’s largest independent company for the development, simulation and test engineering of powertrains (hybrid, combustion engines, transmissions, electric motors, batteries and software) for passenger cars, trucks and large engines. AVL has more than 8,050 employees all over the world. In 2015, sales revenues reached EUR 1.27 billion.
