PHEV Powertrain Solution

Uncompromised PHEV performance with superior efficiency and control

The EtelligentCommand is a technology demonstrator vehicle containing the dedicated hybrid drive DHD Plus at the front and the eDrive Mid+ at the rear axle. The system is designed for plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and full hybrid applications (HEV). The EtelligentCommand uses advanced software-based operating strategies, enabling future-oriented functions for uncompromised performance, efficiency, safety, and convenience.

The DHD Plus is based on proven and efficient dual-clutch technology, providing 120 kW peak power for high performance in all-electric driving. Vehicle launch is always electric, resulting in superior comfort, convenience, and controllability. An e-Crawler function adds outstanding creeping capability with increased wheel torque at low speed.

The eDS Mid+ drive at the rear is a highly integrated eDrive, offering 160 kW peak power. It includes a twin-clutch-based, highly responsive torque vectoring system. This increases cornering performance and safety, while significantly reducing the steering effort demand.
