Mahle is developing a complete “fits all, off-the-shelf” modular hybrid-drive propulsion system for a wide range of automakers' models, designed to cut costs, improve packaging and provide a level of electrified-vehicle commonality not seen before in the auto industry.

Designated Mahle Modular Hybrid Powertrain (MMHP), the system is modular, scalable and dual-mode (parallel and series). It could be in production within two years, ready to power anything from compact sedans to hefty SUVs. The MMHP integrates an all-new turbocharged gasoline internal-combustion engine in twin- and 3-cylinder forms, customizable gearbox (1-, 2- or 4-speed) and a compact but powerful (choice of power/torque) electric traction motor.
