The only high power hybrid powertrain research facility in the UK, allowing detailed studies into the interactions occurring between the components which will in turn develop robust insight into performance before the vehicle is even available on the market.
Its unique chassis dynamometers, sometimes referred to as a rolling road, will bring the real world into the laboratory with the highest levels of precision, flexibility and data availability.
Turbocharger Gas stands will allow the behaviour of turbomachinery to be assessed in a pulsating environment. Supporting this will be Sub 500kW powertrains which are able to investigate traction control, before the final vehicle development.
This facility will be a unique combination of capabilities under one roof.
