Excerpt

ZF intends to focus increasingly on electrified vehicles, as representatives of the company explained. No more powertrain components will be developed that are suitable for the assembly in vehicles with only combustion engines. "We will no longer be developing for combustion engines. There will be no more conventional ZF transmissions," said Dr. Michael Ebenhoch, Head of Development in the car driveline technology division. However, the company is working on the basis that hybrid and electric cars will be in use in parallel for many years to come, because they have different applications. "The precise breakdown between the two is not yet clear and so we are working closely on both types of powertrain," explained Ebenhoch. ZF is continuing to develop Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles with a much longer range in pure electric mode than has been the case in the past.
