The Poclain Hydrostatic Transmission For An Affordable 4x4 Solution
October 20th, 2015
Auto-Innovation.com talks about Addidrive:
Poclain Powertrain’s technical proposal is a surprise in the automobile industry: a hydrostatic transmission in order to enjoy four driving wheels at an affordable cost. The Poclain group generally delivers this type of product on construction equipment and some heavy trucks. The Addidrive system thus allows a transmission to be installed on the rear axle of an automobile or a light-duty commercial vehicle without having the longitudinal shaft hole constraints and for an additional weight of less than a conventional 4x4 transmission. This solution has already appealed to a leading manufacturer who should market it from 2018.
