Hybrid Vehicles (HEV)

The market for Hybrid Transmissions has been growing strongly over the last decade, together with the CO2 regulations worldwide.

Hybrid Transmissions run under very specific operating conditions such as ultra-high speeds using large size motors and generators or low-viscosity oil. Conventional products would not fulfil these specific requirements, our latest innovations in this area enable the hybrid systems to reach the highest possible efficiency combing performance, low-friction and long-life.
As a leading bearing supplier for Hybrid Transmissions, NSK continues to develope new concepts based on four core technologies: Tribology, Materials, Numerical Simulation and Mechatronics.
