  • Ricardo to show advanced low carbon, clean propulsion technologies at LCV2016

    08 September 2016

    Ricardo’s leadership across multiple domains of future vehicle technology will be on show at LCV2016 – the UK’s premier low carbon vehicle event, to be hosted at Millbrook on 14-15 September – where the company will display a range of new technology vehicles, as well as its class-leading capabilities in air quality measurement.

    In the external display area, Ricardo will exhibit low carbon demonstrators, including battery electric and range extended vehicles, as well as hybrids demonstrating the concept of ‘intelligent electrification’. A key attraction in this respect will be the ADEPT (advanced diesel-electric powertrain) project demonstrator, which will be available ...

  • Unplugging the EV

    30 June 2016

    Thanks to the latest generation of wireless electric vehicle charging technologies such as Qualcomm Halo™, the inconvenience and hassle of using power cables to connect to charging points could soon be a thing of the past for EV and PHEV drivers. Anthony Smith reports

    Plugging in for a recharge has to be the least glamorous aspect of driving an electric vehicle (EV) or plug-in hybrid (PHEV). Whereas most drivers of conventional diesel or gasoline fuelled vehicles might typically need to visit the service station to refill their tank once every week or two, plug-in vehicles should ideally be recharged rather more frequently, requiring them to be parked close to a ...

  • Advanced ADEPT 48V affordable hybrid on path to meet future ultra-low vehicle emissions

    29 June 2016
    • Ricardo-led ADEPT programme aims to demonstrate technology capable of providing near full-hybrid equivalent fuel economy at significantly lower cost
    • ADEPT consortium successfully applies advanced mild hybrid technologies with 48V ‘intelligent electrification’ to a Ford Focus project demonstrator
    • Results of almost three years of intensive development and road and laboratory testing of ADEPT technology will be revealed at LCV2016

    Following almost three years of intensive testing, development and validation of advanced mild hybrid technologies with 48V ‘intelligent electrification’ applied to a Ford Focus project demonstrator, the ADEPT (advanced diesel-electric powertrain) consortium partners have announced ...

  • PlugVolt and Ricardo to collaborate on automotive battery education

    07 June 2016

    Ricardo will offer a behind-the-scenes look into its automotive battery, hybrid and electric vehicle analysis workshop to attendees of the July 2016 PlugVolt Battery Seminar in Detroit.

    While electric cars remain a small fraction of new vehicle sales in the United States and Europe, market analysts are seeing increased global demand for electric vehicles on the short term horizon, primarily driven by the Chinese automotive market. Engineers at the major automakers and their suppliers continue to advance battery and alternative energy storage technologies to remain competitive in a dynamic industry under heavy pressure to reduce costs and innovate. Educational events such ...

  • Champions of our air

    11 March 2016

    Street-level air quality in European towns and cities is running significantly above EU limit values in any densely populated areas. Most problematic is the rise of harmful NO2 at street level – largely an unintended consequence of the past 15 years of regulations focusing closely on CO2 and diesel particulate emissions. Air quality experts from Ricardo Energy & Environment explain to Tony Lewin how the excess NOx arises and how new models in the pipeline promise to make tomorrow’s diesels clean on all counts

    There can be little doubt that Europe has a problem with nitrogen dioxide (NO2) emissions. This is ...
