Teardown showcases applications for PM in hybrid electric vehicle market

Following on from a teardown project in 2017, where a team of engineers at Höganäs AB stripped back three new vehicles to their component parts, the company recently repeated the exercise with a hybrid SUV from Chinese automaker BYD.

The four-wheel drive BYD Tang is built for China’s domestic market, and provided the team at Höganäs with the opportunity to establish a better understanding of the use of Powder Metallurgy in hybrid vehicles, as well as highlighting potential future applications. Anders Flodin, Application Development Manager at Höganäs AB, reports on the project.
