ADEPT applies 48V technology in Ford Focus demonstrator

LinkedIn +

The ADEPT (advanced diesel-electric powertrain) project has applied its advanced 48V technology, which utilizes a lead carbon battery, to a Ford Focus demonstrator.

Key ADEPT project achievements have been to show that the integration of hybrid and emissions control systems in the manner envisaged by the project can deliver a Euro 6b-compliant package offering up to a 10-12% reduction in fuel consumption, which is equivalent to sub-80g/km of CO₂ emissions (NEDC).

The package offered by the project can also offer improved responsiveness and acceleration as a result of the increased full-load powertrain torque available through the hybrid systems.
