Environmentally minded automotive technologies are expected to shift from conventional gasoline engines and evolve toward electric powertrain systems using electric motors and inverters, such as Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs), Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEVs), Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs).
Based on Hitachi group's tradition of innovation in railcar motor and control technologies for various trains including Shinkansen, the bullet trains, Hitachi Automotive Systems have been pioneering the development of electric systems and component elements required for electric automobiles. For example, in HEV applications, we offer integrated electromechanical solutions (energy management) for reduction in size and weight and enhancement of control efficiency by using a combination of our unique engine control and electric powertrain technologies.
