two leading international automotive suppliers Continental and Schaeffler are
taking advantage of the 35th International Vienna Motor Symposium (May 8 to 9,
2014) to present the Gasoline Technology Car (GTC).
to a company statement, joint GTC project demonstrates how a networked
integration of key mild hybrid technologies can cut fuel consumption as well as
CO2 emissions by an additional 17 percent in the case of an already highly
efficient car with downsized 3-cylinder gasoline engine – the Ford Focus 1.0 l
these components and the intelligent operating strategy, the GTC prototype not
only ups fuel efficiency by 17pc overall. It also meets the limits set by the
upcoming Euro 6c emissions standard (2017/2018).
achieve this level of hybridisation, we have integrated and systematically
networked key technologies from the Continental and Schaeffler portfolios into
the GTC. The results we achieve with the vehicle point up the potential of this
strategy in a car whose engine was nominated "International Engine of the
Year 2012 and 2013” for its efficiency and performance," says José Avila,
Member of the Executive Board of Continental and President of the Powertrain
Peter Gutzmer, responsible on the Schaeffler Executive Board for Research and
Development, explains what sets the engine apart. "Thanks to the
interaction between components and technologies in the GTC, we can leverage
effects to offer the motorist tangible on-road advantages in terms of fuel
consumption and driveability, " he said. The automotive suppliers stress
that with the integrative GTC approach, the whole is more than the sum of its
parts. The formula 1 + 1 = 3 sums up this effect.
