Massive improvements make 48V the future hybrid

Massive improvements make 48V the future hybrid
The 48V mild-hybrid powertrains from 25 car brands will extend factory and platform life. They rise to a flood in 2020. Most use belt-driven alternator replacements for starter, torque-assist for downsized engine, and primitive regenerative braking. The reduction in carbon dioxide emission keeps things legal as emissions laws tighten. It is quieter and uses less fuel.  By Dr Peter Harrop, Chairman at IDTechEx

Enhanced reliability in highly automated vehicles

Enhanced reliability in highly automated vehicles
By 2030, it is predicted that 50% of newly registered vehicles will be electrically powered, connected or automated. This dramatic upsurge in functionality requires a new system approach in vehicle architecture to support electromobility and highly automated driving.

Post-vehicle value of retired electric vehicle batteries

Post-vehicle value of retired electric vehicle batteries
The rapid penetration of electric vehicles (EVs) has led to questions on its most expensive component, the battery. What happens to the batteries after eight to ten years of service when they retire from EVs due to capacity fade? Volkswagen announced their ambitious target to build a million EVs by 2025 and has already got a plan for their used EV batteries.

EasyPACK modules with CoolSiC MOSFETs for EV charging

EasyPACK modules with CoolSiC MOSFETs for EV charging
Demand for energy efficient charging solutions is rising fast. In order to address the fast growing demand for Silicon Carbide (SiC) solutions in this field, Infineon Technologies launched two new EasyPACK modules of the 1,200V family. Both, Easy 1B and Easy 2B, integrate CoolSiC MOSFETs aiming not only at this market but also at UPS applications.

The future metal requirements of EVs and hybrids

The future metal requirements of EVs and hybrids
For anyone keeping pace with the automotive sector - or general news for that matter – it’s easy to predict the future. Electrification is here to stay, with sales of full EVs and hybrids growing exponentially year on year. This revolution has forced OEMs to create entirely new vehicle platforms to accommodate new, innovative powertrains - resulting in mass redesigns across all of the major brands. This focus on delivering optimised platforms for future dynasties of electric vehicles is bringing aluminium components to the fore, and of course, the Tier 1 suppliers such as Mark Aluminium Die Casting (MADC) who provide them.

WiFi takes EV charging infrastructure to next level

WiFi takes EV charging infrastructure to next level
Around the world, the electrification of road vehicles shows no signs of slowing down. Driven by their reduced environmental impact, low operation and maintenance costs, and, crucially, government monetary and non‑monetary subsidies, a growing number of individuals and businesses are opting for electric vehicles (EVs) over vehicles powered by conventional internal combustion engines.

Here come 48V full hybrid electric vehicles

Here come 48V full hybrid electric vehicles
The new Hyundai Tucson switches off the engine when coasting or braking at under 30kph. This is a bridge to the 48V full hybrids that IDTechEx foresaw some time ago. IDTechEx correctly predicted that they would come sooner rather than later and not just as cars - thus the title of the new IDTechEx report embracing it all, ‘48V Mild Hybrid and 48V Full Hybrid Vehicles 2020-2030’.
