The demand for Hybrid Vehicles has been rising rapidly thanks to the low fuel consumption and low emissions realised through a more efficient integration of the engine and electric motor. There is a growing need to reduce torque loss in the bearings used in the transmissions of the new generation hybrid cars. NSK new Low-Torque Ball Bearings for Hybrid Vehicle Transmissions enable a 50-65% improvement in frictional loss compared to conventional bearings, contributing therefore to improved fuel efficiency and lower emissions. This innovative product is featured in the new Toyota Prius.
