The Intouro hybrid's technology is as simple as it is convincing. The energy generated by recuperation is stored in capacitors, also known as supercaps. These are ideal for continuous switchovers between charging and discharging when stopping and moving off. The second key component of its advanced hybrid drive is the electric motor. The unit is used in the Intouro hybrid between the combustion engine and the automatic transmission. It generates an output of 14 kW and a peak torque of 220 Nm. The electric motor supports the combustion engine in the event of high power requirements. It does not, however, serve to increase the maximum output, which is why the output and torque figures for the intercity bus remain unchanged. The electric motor acts as a supplement to the combustion engine, thereby noticeably reducing fuel consumption. Compared with other hybrid drives, the Intouro hybrid dispenses with unnecessary voltage: instead of a complex high-voltage system, it features a separate 48-volt system. This is classed as low-voltage technology and is therefore safer to handle. In this context, the new Intouro hybrid once again shows off its easy-to-use features.
