GM shaves two years off development time

GM shaves two years off development time of Two-Mode Hybrid powertrain using model-based design

Using math and simulation-based tools from The MathWorks helped GM to design a hybrid powertrain prototype within nine months, shaving 24 months off the expected development time. The complex control system is currently in production in the GMC Sierra Hybrid, GMC Yukon Hybrid, Chevy Tahoe Hybrid, Chevy Silverado Hybrid, and Cadillac Escalade Hybrid vehicles.
