Revolutionary Thinking

The mtu Hybrid PowerPack is the new generation of tried and tested PowerPacks. It is equipped with additional components and functions such as the use of power-dense electrical machines. The Hybrid PowerPack can easily be installed in the space under the floor. The modular design creates great flexibility in planning new vehicles with hybrid train engines or converting existing diesel trains. It satisfies all existing railway standards and can be arranged according to customer specifications.

Based on the hybrid train's specifications and the profile of the planned routes, mtu can simulate the lifecycle costs of specific projects. This means that we can design the perfect drive solution fitting your economical requirements. Together with you, we then determine an optimal concept based on your needs.
