NEW YORK, Nov. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Comparative Analysis of Automotive Original Equipment Manufacturers' Powertrain Strategies for Euro 7 Compliance : Focus will be on Particulate Matter Number and On-board Diagnostics

This research service provides a detailed analysis of how European automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are expected to comply with Euro 7 emission reduction standards. It delves into spending needed to create a compact and strong aftertreatment package. A technology road map will provide insight about expected modifications of gasoline and diesel engines. Aftertreatment components of passenger vehicles have undergone tremendous changes over the last decade; the introduction of Euro 6 created a need for higher research and development investments. Targeted emission particles and greenhouse gas vapors are listed. The study period is from 2012 to 2020; the base year is 2014.

Key Findings

1 LNT, low-pressure EGR, and SCR penetration is expected to increase in diesel engines; VVT, VGT, and GDI to see increased penetration in gasoline engines.
Euro 7 is expected to be phased in around 2019 or 2020, with more stringent values for NOx, CO, and PM numbers.

2 For passenger vehicles, SCR, EGR, and LNT in different configurations are expected to be key aftertreatment options for Euro 6b compliance. More advanced DPF, GPF, and DOC are expected to be adopted by the introduction of Euro 7. The downsizing trend is expected to continue for 2016, with more engines adopting boosting technology to meet power requirements.

3 For diesel engine technology, engine downsizing has been a popular trend among European OEMs, with several 2014 and 2015 engines reduced to less than 2.0L. Moving forward, diesel engine downsizing is likely to slow—mainly in order to meet NOx limits—but a marginal increase in the average diesel engine displacement is expected by 2020. All diesel engine aftertreatment technologies are likely to have penetration rates of to %, with LNT and cooled EGR. DPF is expected to be at % penetration by 2020.

4 Euro 7 test cycles will play an important role in tailpipe, low ambient temperature, and idling speed emissions; exhaust gas opacity; and the proper functioning and regeneration of aftertreatment systems. Among the areas of key interest for OEMs to meet norms are exhaust systems' evaporative emissions and crankcase emissions; OBD is expected to be key in meeting Euro 7 targets.

Key Questions this Study Will Answer

- What are the key technologies that OEMs will use to comply with Euro 7 norms?
- What are the focal points for the European Commission towards 2020?
- How are technology trends effecting CO emissions and PM numbers?
- What are the platform standardization strategies of global OEMs to meet Euro 7 norms?
- What strategies are expected to be major market drivers for OEMs?
