For MTU, the future is electric. For over a century, the internal combustion engine reigned supreme, powering everything from huge oceangoing vessels to the monster machines used in mining and construction. But now there is a new contender – the electric motor. But while electric motors are already widely used in automobiles, the use of a straightforward electric drive in an off-highway vehicle remains the absolute exception – the power density gap between diesel fuel and a battery being simply too wide. The solution lies in the hybrid drive, which takes the electric motor and all the virtues it undeniably possesses and offers the best of both worlds.
