MAGSPLIT uses electronic control of a magnetic gear to give a continuously variable ratio. The flexibility of the system makes it especially suited to hybrid vehicle transmissions and it has been realised in passenger car and truck applications. The concept is extended and a smaller variant is used to drive engine ancillaries (e.g. AC compressor) at their optimum speed, leading to high fuel savings.

MAGSPLIT has just two rotating elements and can be controlled with conventional electronics. The system has the unique ability to filter torsional vibration from an internal combustion engine without a loss in efficiency.


Power-split hybrid architecture provides all of the benefits of a parallel hybrid and a series hybrid. With MAGSPLIT you have the optimum solution for a Dedicated Hybrid Transmission.
