The latest design of the Innas hydraulic transformer (IHT) and the Hydrid hydraulic serial hybrid drivetrain for passenger cars and off-road equipment from Innas and NOAX half a vehicle’s fuel consumption and reduce CO2 by 50%, according to the companies, without compromising weight, size, traction, or top speed. In a Hydrid, the complete mechanical drivetrain is replaced by a full hydrostatic transmission, allowing energy recuperation and efficient engine operation. The concept requires efficient hydrostatic pumps, motors, and transformers, all based on the floating cup principle. Hydrid components can be manufactured using mass production technologies without the use of copper or battery packs to minimize costs.
