In a There was an error working with the wiki: Code[3], There was an error working with the wiki: Code[4], There was an error working with the wiki: Code[5]s, and the final drive (There was an error working with the wiki: Code[7]s, There was an error working with the wiki: Code[8], There was an error working with the wiki: Code[9], etc.). Sometimes "powertrain" is used to refer to simply the engine and transmission, including the other components only if they are integral to the transmission.

A vehicle's driveline consists of the parts of the drivetrain excluding the engine and transmission. It is the portion of a vehicle, after the transmission, that changes depending on whether a vehicle is There was an error working with the wiki: Code[10], There was an error working with the wiki: Code[11], or There was an error working with the wiki: Code[12].

Broader definition

In a wider sense, the powertrain includes all components to transform chemical, physical or nuclear energy into secondary energy and deliver it to the interface to the outer world for propulsion purposes. This includes the utilisation of multiple power sources and non wheel based vehicles.

From an energetic standpoint the weakest point is the first step: Internal combustion engines have limitations regarding efficiency, but the "There was an error working with the wiki: Code[13]" efficiency of There was an error working with the wiki: Code[14] systems are not considered any better.There was an error working with the wiki: Code[2] This refers to Fuel cells with additional reformer losses, Electric vehicles powered from the grid with low hydraulic and renewable energy share and also vehicles using energy storage with high losses (some battery types, ultra- or supercaps).

Hybrid powertrain and aftermarket kits

One can install conmarket or There was an error working with the wiki: Code[6]. The conmarket solution is used when the user buys the hybrid powertrain to the There was an error working with the wiki: Code[15] and recieves it installed in the car.
