IN THE HOT SEAT: @nationalrenewableenergylab, @hyundaiusa, and Gentherm Inc. recently joined forces to test drive Hyundai's plug-in hybrid electric vehicle in the extreme heat of Death Valley in California.
Engineers Cory Kreutzer (NREL), Matthew Scott (Hyundai), and Jim Gallaher (Gentherm) are evaluating technologies associated with air conditioning and thermal load reduction, to improved vehicle range and performance. These engineers do rigorous testing that assures durability, reliability and quality for every facet of every vehicle Hyundai America Technical Center, Inc. touches.
In partnership with commercial and government fleets, NREL conducts in-service performance evaluations of hybrid electric vehicles compared to similar conventional vehicles.
