DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "48V Issues and Prospects: Unlocking the Opportunities - 3rd Edition" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
48V is clearly going to be a very important technology in the coming decade. Some senior OEM executives say it should be one of those fundamental technologies that should be adopted by all ICE vehicles in the future.
Key benefits for 48V are that it is is a system that augments combustion engines to reduce fuel consumption, reduces particulate emissions in diesels and improves the driver experience by increasing the responsiveness of the vehicle.
48V systems can help OEMs deliver most of the reductions in CO2 emisisons required by regulations at a fraction of the cost of full electrification - a real benefit in a world of political uncertainty about the future of EV subsidies - and without having to tackle the barriers to adoption (such as range and cost) thrown up by more fully electric solutions.Key Topics Covered:
