Hidria has already signed contracts for 110 million euros to supply major producers of diesel engines with the new plug. Diesel ignition systems are one of the key products of Hidria’s automotive division – the other being the development of high-end electric motors for hybrid and electric cars. This year Hidria developed electric motors for the exclusive hybrid edition of the Porsche Spyder 918. The technological corporation, with headquarters in Idirija, developed an electric motor for the Mercedes SLS E-Cell and was also selected to develop solutions for the new generation of hybrid Mercedes C and E-class cars.
