Heavy Duty


Light duty vehicles are consuming a significant amount of fuel of all transportation activities. Autonomie has been used to evaluate the fuel displacement potential of numerous technologies, including:

Below are some of the many examples of studies performed at Argonne to evaluate the vehicles fuel consumption. With the engine remaining the main propulsion source for the near future, Argonne has worked with the University of Michigan to evaluate the potential of HCCI engine for different powertrain configurations over direct injection (for conventional) and Atkinson (for electric drive) engines.
