TMETC's Powertrain engineers have extensive experience in transmission and driveline design, development and calibration. This experience has been gained working within vehicle manufacturers, tier1 suppliers and engineering consultancies.

The Powertrain department is particularly experienced in the design, development and validation of all transmissions types for conventional, hybrid and electric passenger cars. It offers support to its clients with transmission selection and powertrain matching, and is supported by a full service vehicle engineering capability, with skills in all areas of transmission design, analysis, packaging, and test and development. Design and development processes are aligned with niche low volume or high volume manufacturing methods.

The CAE team has access to world class simulation tools and high calibre computing resources, allowing them to perform a complete range of engine and vehicle simulations thus optimising engine designs with regard to power, weight and durability.

The Powertrain Thermal Systems team is responsible for vehicle powertrain cooling and thermal management. Thermal system engineers design and develop systems to manage the heat generated by both conventional and low carbon vehicles.

As a part of thermal systems development activities, the team utilize CAE, custom built experimental rigs and extensive vehicle testing at climatic wind tunnel and in territory hot/cold climates.

The team is also involved in thermal systems research work on the Energy Storage Catapult, a collaboration between TMETC, Jaguar Land Rover and the University of Warwick, plus other Tata Motors-funded advanced engineering programs.
