The paper presented herein, combines various aspects of hybrid electric powertrain technology with the mechanics of multi-axle drivelines. Starting with a review of why automotive engineers desire to implement electrified powertrain technology, the paper will then explore the reasons for multi-axle drivetrains and finally, will explore the benefits and challenges of combining hybrid-electric and multiaxle driveline technology.
