The Steyr Hybrid Drivetrain Konzept was entered into the Design Concept category, for design concepts and prototypes. As a winner in this class, the Hybrid Drivetrain Konzept will feature in the next edition of the Red Dot Design Yearbook and be showcased in the winners’ area of the www.red-dot.org website.
