IndyCar Moves Forward With Hybrid Assist Plans

MOORESVILLE, N.C. — IndyCar may not be getting its 2.4-liter “Beast” of an engine, but it is moving forward with the Hybrid Assist Unit. For the past two years, MAHLE Powertrain has worked with IndyCar to develop an innovative, first-of-its-kind hybrid system for the NTT IndyCar Series to provide on-demand acceleration at the driver’s request. The new hybrid system is an important extension of the IndyCar’s objective to be the most sustainable motorsports series in the world. “We are delighted to have supported the NTT IndyCar Series to develop the new push-to- pass hybrid system,” said MAHLE Powertrain Managing Director Hugh Blaxill. “We appreciate the innovative solution initiated by MAHLE Powertrain and their hard work in the development of our new hybrid system,” IndyCar President Jay Frye said.
