The electric vehicle business will approach a massive $500 billion in 2025 with the traction motors segment capturing over $25 billion. Traction motors propelling land, water and air vehicles along can consist of one inboard motor or - an increasing trend - more than one near the wheels, in the wheels, in the transmission or ganged to get extra power. Complex trends in this industry are explained with this updated report, and future winning suppliers are identified alongside market forecasts. The information is especially important as hybrid vehicles may have the electric motor near the conventional engine or its exhaust, and this may mean they need to tolerate temperatures never before encountered in pure electric vehicles. Motors for highly price-sensitive markets such as electric bikes, scooters, e-rickshaws and micro EVs avoid the price hikes of neodymium and other rare earths in the magnets.

Legislative requirements to reduce CO2 emissions by 2020 have resulted in significant efforts by car manufacturers to explore various methods of pollution abatement. One of the most effective ways found so far is by shortening the cylinder stroke and downsizing the engine. This new engine then needs to be boosted, or turbocharged, to create the full and original load torque. Turbocharging has been and will continue to be a key component to the new technologies that will make a positive difference in the next-generation engines of years to come. Concepts in Turbocharging for Improved Efficiency and Emissions Reduction explores the many ways that turbocharging will deliver concrete results in meeting the new realities of sustainable, green transportation.

This popular report begins by examining transmission development drivers along with transmission development changes. It goes on to examine transmissions technology, with particular attention to Manual Transmissions (MT), Dual Clutch Automated Manual Transmissions (DCT), Automatic Transmissions, Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVT), Hybrid Transmissions and Electric Vehicle Transmissions. The Automotive Transmissions sector is now a critical technology that can deliver much needed benefits to a vehicle in a relatively cost-effective fashion. Transmission technology is critical to future powertrain development in terms of its ability to deliver both drivability and the emissions-reducing performance being demanded. As OEMs strive to differentiate their product offerings, transmission choice and performance have become an essential element of the ‘DNA’ of the vehicle.

Increasing pressure on global reserves of petroleum at a time of growing demand for personal transport in developing countries, together with environmental concerns, are leading to a requirement for more sustainable forms of road transport. Major improvements in the efficiency of all types of road vehicles are called for, along with the use of fuels derived from alternative sources, or entirely new fuels. Towards Sustainable Road Transport describes the evolution of vehicle designs and propulsion technologies over the past two centuries, before looking forward to possible new forms of energy to substitute for petroleum. It also discusses the political and socio-economic drivers for change, investigates barriers to their broad implementation, and outlines the state-of-the-art of candidate power sources, advanced vehicle design, and associated infrastructure.

The increasingly stringent emissions regulations faced by vehicle manufacturers have been driving the growth of more fuel-efficient conventionally powered vehicles. The ability of stop-start systems to improve vehicle carbon emissions by between 5% and 15% at very low additional cost has seen a dramatic increase in the proportion of vehicles being fitted with such systems. And this growth in demand for stop-start systems is set to increase substantially, especially in Europe, North America, China and Japan. The exclusive new report from ABOUT Automotive reviews the key market drivers for stop-start engine technology for the ‘micro hybrid’ segment and conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle applications. It sets out the market drivers and forecasts for the global stop-start systems market through to 2020 and reviews the technical advances made in stop-start technology, including the competing technologies, and the latest developments.

The exhaust and after-treatment market is set for considerable growth. The tightening regulatory environment has led to considerably increased revenues per vehicle and this is set to improve globally as emerging high-growth markets catch up with Europe and Northern America in terms of the level of equipment needed to meet regulations. The costly situation where different national and regional regulation and testing regimes that have required different emissions technologies and systems is being steadily eroded by the harmonization of emissions regulations. Having initially endured the difficult situation of meeting environmental regulations developed across different markets, OEMs and suppliers have found that emerging markets have largely been able to pick their regulation ’off the shelf’. This has meant that those suppliers that have successfully developed technology to meet those regulations enjoy a competitive advantage in the emerging markets.

Conventional fossil fuels will constitute the majority of automotive fuels for the foreseeable future but will have to adapt to changes in engine technology. Unconventional transport fuels such as biofuels, gas-to-liquid fuels, compressed natural gas, and liquid petroleum gas will also play a role. Hydrogen might be a viable transport fuel if it overcomes barriers in production, transport, storage, and safety and/or if fuel cells become viable. This book opens by considering these issues and then introduces practical transport fuels. A chapter on engine deposits follows, which is an important practical topic about how fuels affect engines that is not usually considered in other books. The next three chapters discuss auto-ignition phenomena in engines. The auto-ignition resistance of fuels is the most important fuel property since it limits the efficiency of spark ignition engines and determines the performance of compression ignition engines.

This report looks at the market drivers currently affecting the advanced powertrain sector, in particular fuel economy, CO2 emissions, and fuel prices. Furthermore, the report provides detailed analysis of spark-ignition, compression-ignition and combined spark and compression ignition engines technologies. Powertrain has always been perhaps the single most critical aspect of the automotive engineering; the decision taken in the early years of the 20th century to concentrate on internal combustion engines (ICE) rather than electric traction or sterling cycle heat engines has meant that throughout the last century development of ICE was absolutely critical, not only for the competitive aspects of the automotive and commercial vehicle industries, but also in terms of much of the military and civilian aircraft sectors, marine and stationary engines.

In the six years since the last edition of this report, the use of pressure charging techniques has expanded dramatically, and the number of applications has continued to grow. What we have seen in recent years is the ascendancy of the turbocharger and its use by almost every major manufacturer, as well as the adoption of new arrangements that combine turbocharger and supercharger technologies to deliver characteristics superior to what either technology could deliver individually. The global demand for turbochargers is rising fast; there are a number of key market drivers fuelling this growth, namely tightening regulation governing emissions and fuel efficiency, the high price of fuel, and the popularity of direct injection petrol and diesel-powered cars. The trend towards engine downsizing for improved fuel efficiency and lower emissions continues to gain pace, leading to increasing demand for turbocharging for petrol engines.
