Powertrain control: unlocking the potential of hybrid

Assisting clients along the journey to e-mobility

Automotive OEMs and Tier 1 manufacturers are responding to society’s need for cars that offer performance and comfort, as well as a greener environmental footprint than traditional combustion engines. The car’s powertrain control module is therefore an important part of the solution. Until e-mobility becomes mainstream, brands are bringing hybrid vehicles to market with power-split engines that can drive ‘the last mile’ in electric.


Expleo works closely with clients on their journey towards full electric vehicles, including the delivery of serial hybrid motors, ideally fitted within the gearbox.

Turn-key solutions from adaptive engineering

We bring long-term project management experience at the interface between OEM and supplier. Our lean engineering and management solutions, including extensive nearshore capabilities, offer turn-key solutions for the adaption of existing ECUs to a new vehicle’s electronic architecture.   

Our services range from development of ECUs for combustion engines / electric / hybrid powertrains and gearboxes, system requirements analysis and design to model-based design, e.g. OBD, torque structure, air intake, depollution (NOx Trap, SCR).  

We deliver safety concepts, AUTOSAR software components, calibration of petrol & diesel engines and gearboxes, test of systems and functions (MiL, HiL & vehicle) incl. development of HiL test benches, ECU development follow up (hardware/software), prototype design and rapid prototyping (vehicle adaptation). 

We also take care of the development (design and management) and the serial life of engine components.
