Aeristech exhibited with MAHLE Powertrain at the NVN Symposium

25th March 2014

This month, Aeristech and MAHLE Powertrain exhibited the outcome of a successful collaborative project to validate the concept of integrating Aeristech’s electric supercharger (eSupercharger) to MAHLE’s range extender engine for Range Extended Electric Vehicle (REEV) at the 2014 Niche Vehicle Symposium.

Aeristech Commercial Director, Julien Servant, was invited to present Aeristech’s technology and give an overview of the successful “eSupercharger  for Super-compact Range Extender” project, in the Advanced Propulsion Technologies session at the NVN Symposium event in Gaydon on 18th March.

The primary objective of this collaborative project with MAHLE Powertrain was to demonstrate the novel concept of integrating Aeristech’s electric supercharger (eSupercharger) to increase the power output of MAHLE’s Range Extender (REx) engine from 30 kW to 50 kW to broaden the scope of Range Extended Electric Vehicle (REEV) applications for the REx engine.

Implementing Aeristech’s eSupercharger technology to achieve this power upgrade from 30 kW to 50 kW required minimal changes to the base engine design, and therefore enables MAHLE Powertrain to offer an optional power upgrade for larger / heavier vehicle applications.
