BOSTON, Massachusetts, March 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
The brand new IDTechEx Research report "Future Powertrains 2016-2026" presents a new and detailed roadmap for 2016-2036 covering both technology and market development. Ten year forecasts are given for 46 categories of electric vehicle including 48V mild hybrids transitioning to be electric vehicles. No one else has this level of detail. Original IDTechEx tables and infographics pull together the analysis making it easy to absorb.

The unique IDTechEx Research report, "Future Powertrains 2016-2036" is almost entirely based on the very latest information gathered and interpreted in 2016. IDTechEx analysts have travelled intensively worldwide to report the latest research, conferences and expert opinions and to analyse how the markets and technologies will move over the coming 15 years. A typical 10 year forecast is misleading here. For example, IDTechEx sees the reinvented traditional ICE powertrain in the form of the 48V mild hybrid peaking just after that and a huge market for the new energy independent vehicles will appear even later.
Conferences were attended and extensive interviews carried out worldwide in Taiwan, Korea, Japan, Germany, Ireland, UK, USA and elsewhere, clarifying such things as the window of opportunity and potential performance of the different options.
Uniquely, IDTechEx presents a bigger picture of opportunity than that addressed by other observers and participants. For example, it is commonly taught that 48V mild hybrids can provide and store four times as much electricity for new clients, but we show that accepting many new high power inputs of electricity from harvesting and regeneration is equally important. Pure electric vehicles are typically seen as the end game in contactlessly charged form but, beyond that, we show the many energy independent forms appearing, some already on sale. We show how shaped components can evolve further into structural electronics and variants of the supercapacitor can compete with or enhance batteries. We benchmark what is happening in the air and on water but the focus is on land vehicles, on and off-road. The future is very different from that commonly portrayed and much more exciting.
