Special Report on 48V Technology In the Global Auto Industry 2017: Key Regulatory Drivers are in Place to Compel the Industry to Make the Switch - Research and Markets

DUBLIN--()--The "Special Report on 48V Technology In the Global Auto Industry" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

With ever-tightening regulations to reduce CO2 emissions and improve fuel economy levels, global automakers and their suppliers have turned their attention to a range of technologies including the electrification of powertrains. Now the focus is on 48V mild hybrids, a more affordable alternative, though giving less bang for the buck in reducing emissions and improving fuel economy.

This report will provide you with a better understanding of the system technologies, the value equation in terms of cost and benefit, current activities by OEMs and suppliers, obstacles and opportunities, and forecasts.

Against the backdrop of ever-tightening regulations to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions and improve fueleconomy, global automakers and suppliers have turned their attention to a range of technologies, including the electrification of powertrains. Toyota introduced the Prius, the world's first gas-electric hybrid in 1997. Thirteen years later, in 2010, Nissan launched the Leaf electric car employing a lithium-ion battery. In between, automakers tinkered with various combinations of partially electric-powered cars including plug-in hybrids. The Chevrolet Volt went on sale in December 2010, the same month as Nissan's all-electric Leaf.

Yet, as the industry strives to meet more stringent fuel-economy and emissions targets, hybrids and fully electric vehicles have struggled to gain a foothold in the market, while the cost of building those vehicles has remains high. OEMs are looking for other, less expensive and less disruptive ways to hit fuel economy and emissions targets.
