48 Volt Technologies

48V technology facilitates smart hybrid operating strategies that can be implemented in both gasoline- and diesel-engined cars. Continental’s 48V technology achieves documented fuel savings of approximately 21 percent in real world urban driving. One of the most recent production breakthroughs for electrification came with the launch of 48V diesel hybrid versions of the Scénic and Grand Scénic models from French manufacturer Renault.

These models already boast a highly efficient engine and this is now being taken a stage further through their electric drive system from Continental.  With the production vehicle, both the fuel-saving hybrid driving functions as well as the enormous gain in convenience of a 48-Volt hybrid will be made tangible.
