BOSTON, April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
It is no longer contentious to say that the future of land, water and air vehicles is to be more and more electric. The detail of how this is being achieved is rich and varied and it revolves around the electric motor and its variants far more than the more-discussed battery. By definition, an electric vehicle is driven by an electric motor for some or all of the time and these are becoming more sophisticated and multipurpose and there are more per vehicle. In their new report "Electric Vehicle Traction Motors, Belt Driven & Integrated Starter Generators 2016-2026", IDTechEx Research forecasts that rotating electrical machine systems (REMS) will take a considerable share of the $980bn EV market in 2026.
In this report IDTechEx Research discusses the seven reasons for more than one REM per vehicle. Integrating other functions is another trend we analyse such as merging with power electronics and gearing, often in-wheel or in-propeller. REMs are now providing electricity for a rapidly increasing number of on-board devices as they proliferate and as existing devices are electrified for better efficiency, control, versatility and safety.
"Electric Vehicle Traction Motors, Belt Driven & Integrated Starter Generators 2016-2026" explains how REMs for converting traditional ICE powertrains to 48V mild hybrid. This is to meet the onerous 2025 and 2030 emissions regulations that cannot be met by traditional ICE powertrains in C and D cars and larger vehicles but other benefits accrue. At a fraction of the cost, this gives most of the features of a strong hybrid that does not plug in, so potential is large.
Only IDTechEx Research forecasts the global electric vehicle industry in 46 categories, presented here by land, water and air. The main business is cars and buses and the emphasis of the report reflects that. Future winners and losers are identified among the powertrains and devices. This report presents unique insights through analysis of over 160 manufacturers, material recently presented at events worldwide and interviews with key players.
