UPDATED: The quarterly research update adds analysis, discussion and revised forecasts to assess the likely impact of the Trump election and potential revisions of the 2025 CAFE standards in the US, and adds new analysis of likely developments in battery costs.
The report looks at technical trends and developments in each of these areas, and projects how those trends might develop by 2025 to 2030. It establishes the consensus view about developments, and then challenges it with Key Uncertainties, Trends and Potential Disruptors.
Non-linear improvements in computer power have caused profound disruption in many industries. In automotive, a lot of attention has been focused on smart cars and connectivity.
But a huge disruption is already happening in powertrain development, driven by the electronic control units (ECUs) in light duty vehicles, as they improve and engineers learn how to use them.
The 21st century powertrain is an integrated and jointly developed combination of IC engines, batteries, transmissions (sometimes), generator/motors and complex control systems. While these hybrids started out as a specialist choice, most automakers agreed that electrification of most powertrains will occur to some degree by 2025.
So, electrification will become the new normal. The question is how much electrification.
21st Century Powertrain: Electrification, Fuel and Future examines the impact of these developments on the five major elements of the future powertrain:
- Internal combustion engines
- Control Systems
- Electric Motors
Key Topics Covered:
Chapter 1: Introduction
Chapter 2: Overview of market drivers and regulatory requirements worldwide
Chapter 2 Summary - forecasts and uncertainties
Chapter 3: Gasoline engine developments for light duty vehicles
Chapter 4: Diesel engine developments for light duty vehicles
Chapter 5: Electric battery storage
Chapter 6: New business models and user acceptance of electric vehicles
Chapter 7: Trends and projections - a scenario approach
- Hitachi Automotive Systems
- Magneti Marelli
- ZF Friedrichshafen
