The expected impacts resulting from the project correspond directly to several desired impacts identified in the LC-GV-07-2020 call, i.e.:
Implementation of all the selected technologies in an existing demonstrator vehicle and idy in real driving conditionsts testing by an independent bo according to themethodologies developed for PHEVs in RDE regulation with (i) 15% higher V x apos values in urban, extra urban and motorway real driving segments, (ii) use of raw emissions with no weighting, (iii) a 2000 m limit on altitude gain, and (iv) no time limit on 165 km/h maximum test speed.
Engine peak efficiency reaching at least 47% to guarantee high efficiency also in areas not covered by battery propulsion.
Incorporation of a battery consistent with a WLTP range of at least 80km, or its mass simulated for RDE testing, which will however be performed in charge sustaining mode, with a full passenger load.
Reduction of the real-world environmental impacts of vehicles consistent with the level of ambition defined for the European commission Horizon Prize for cleanest engine of the future, thus simulating compliance with possible future regulation and ensuring a low impact also when running on the combustion engine.
