DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Global Mild-Hybrid Vehicles Market - Forecasts and Trends (2016 - 2021)" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
Controlled Power Technologies (CPT), one of the pioneers in providing environmental friendly automotive technologies, had shown great interest in 48V mild hybrid vehicles. It has planned to launch switched-reluctance (SR) motor-generator technology for these vehicles. The company has also shown interest in developing portfolio of electronically controlled electrical machines known as COBRA, Speed Start and TIGERS suited for these vehicles. The product is expected to bring about significant CO2 and NO2 reduction through different applications of switched reluctance technology, which is also helpful as it eliminates the need for permanent magnets and earth metals in an electrical machine. The prospect for the mild hybrid vehicles market has started attracting a lot of similar automotive technology vendors in the market.
Evolution in vehicle emissions regulations would result in difficulties to meet the standards with the conventional vehicle technology. However, a shift to the fully hybrid and pure electric powertrains involves considerable cost in building different infrastructural platforms. Thereby, an intermediate technology like that of mild-hybrid is a very effective development where the vehicle has the capacity to incrementally improve fuel efficiency from the traditional powertrains. A significant extent of braking energy can be regenerated in this system than the micro-hybrid ones. The alternator is replaced with a reversible 48 V electric machine with a large battery. Mild hybrids make use of stop-start and regenerative braking but they tend not to return as high of EPA-rated mpg compared to full hybrids or that of an electric vehicle.
The electric machine provides the much required torque boost and assist in providing considerable downsizing of the internal combustion engine. The improvements and developments permit the 48V mild hybrid to have increased acceleration, noiseless start stop, and smooth take-off that would significantly improve driver experiences almost pilfering the advantages of hybrids, at less than half the cost and structure. Some common example of these vehicles would be General Motors eAssist and Honda's Integrated Motor Assist.
