Powertrain Design & Engineering

Powertrain Design & Engineering

Stricter fuel economy and emissions regulations are driving automakers and suppliers to develop more efficient powertrains and vehicles. Vehicle teams must collaborate closely with powertrain engineers to reduce energy demands throughout the vehicle. These efforts include lightweighting, improving aerodynamics and other elements. 

Our powertrain design solution provides a state-of-the-art modeling environment to help your powertrain teams quickly create design studies to evaluate powertrains using digital mockups of the vehicle compartment, subsystems and components.
