With the potential to be one of the world’s most efficient and cost-effective powertrain technologies, Administrator Jackson stated that the hydraulic hybrid system could increase overall fuel efficiency 30-35 percent, and up to 60 percent in city driving, while reducing overall greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent. By increasing efficiency, emissions of other harmful pollutants are also reduced.

A hydraulic hybrid system developed and patented by the EPA has been integrated into a variety of commercial vehicles, such as delivery trucks, refuse collection trucks and yard hostlers. FEV was a key partner in the development and integration of the system into a number of test vehicles, providing such services as design, analysis, simulation, and fabrication of the hydraulic drive unit.

For the Chrysler/EPA project, FEV will support the engineering of a hydraulic hybrid system on a smaller scale, and the integration into a vehicle designed for comfort as well as family utility.
