Currently, we are designing a power-shift transmission for a Plug-In Hybrid Sprinter. The two-stage spur gear unit is installed between the front drive shaft. It features a dog clutch system synchronised by the electric motor. Its advantage is that it allows the drive mode to be switched between combustion engine, hybrid and electric while driving.
