This unique report is presented in very detailed wide format slides. Only a global up-to-date view makes sense in this fast-moving subject. Therefore the multilingual PhD level analysts have travelled intensively in 2016 and 2017 to report the latest research, conferences and expert opinions and to analyse how the markets and technologies will move over the coming 15 years. Original tables and infographics pull together the analysis.
The comprehensive Executive Summary and Conclusions embraces market forecasts for 48V systems in cars and for the different types of electric car which compete with 48V systems to replace conventional cars. For clarity, many infographics are presented. This is analysis by experts not simply a consolidation of information out there. The new, original figures for the addressable market for 48V cars is plotted alongside the figures likely to be achieved for this period.
The 48V technology roadmap is put in context by overall electric vehicle technology trends in infographics. Based on Volkswagen methodology, the four generations of 48V system are scoped in time this extra information from the analyst giving a wider opportunity than that normally addressed. For example, many forms of multiple energy harvesting and recuperation will be enabled.
There is then a Technology Analysis which includes a look at the synergy with 48V pure electric powertrains. The widening range of 48V parts being added to the basic 48V systems is investigated as they progress towards 48V alone. The relevance to small vs large cars and premium vs mainstream cars is clarified by year then the progress with the different building blocks is examined in depth. In particular, the reversible torque assisting motor generator is examined, comparing the different options being pursued such as permanent magnet vs switched reluctance synchronous and the option of asynchronous.
Throughout, the views and forecasts of leading vehicle manufacturers and their Tier One suppliers is surfaced as well as those of the innovative small companies. The component analysis is thorough, embracing, for example, lithium-ion vs Advanced Lead Acid batteries and what comes after them. Latest progress with the most significant collaborative programs is revealed and the proliferation of energy harvesting and recuperation options is studied in detail.
