ISVR Engineering Research Seminar Series 2017-2018


The business of making premium cars is undergoing radical change as expectations of increased luxury, connectivity and customer experience meet with the necessities of reduced emissions and environmental impact. Premium vehicles always have refinement at their very core, but traditional noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) solutions can only go so far in addressing the challenges generated by these new advanced powertrain technologies. 

This talk will cover some of the advanced NVH technologies in use in the new Range Rover Plug-In Hybrid, and discuss how, by embracing the new challenges, Land Rover has created the cleanest and quietest Range Rover so far.
