Dana Holding introduces Spicer PowerBoost, a line of integrated hydraulic-hybrid powertrain concepts for the off-highway market. Deployed through series or parallel hybrid configurations that fit into existing vehicle designs with minimal adaptation, Spicer PowerBoost supplements all types of transmission architectures. Spicer PowerBoost captures kinetic energy otherwise wasted throughout the drivetrain and the working hydraulics, then uses this recuperated energy to help power the vehicle, reducing fuel consumption by 20 to 40% compared to conventional drivetrain concepts, depending on vocational application and duty cycle. Spicer PowerBoost also can reduce total owning and operating costs by increasing productivity, reducing maintenance, and through the use of a downsized engine.
