Follow-up Report, 9th International CTI Symposium USA – Automotive Transmissions, HEV and EV Drives, 20-21 May 2015, Novi, Michigan
Efficient Drives: A Reality Check
Crude oil became significantly cheaper in 2015, not least because the USA is now an oil exporter again, and there is a global surplus. How long this cosy situation will last remains to be seen, but as the 9th CTI Symposium in Novi, Michigan (May 20-21) again showed, it has an impact on the debate over tomorrow’s drives. Even more than last year participants discussed, which and how much fuel-saving technology is needed to effectively reach fleet consumption targets like CAFE.
The Motor of the Automotive Future
9th International CTI Symposium + Transmission Expo
Automotive Transmissions, HEV and EV Drives
18 – 21 May 2015, Novi, Michigan, USA
Düsseldorf/Novi, 8 April 2015. Upcoming American regulations for the average C02 emissions of auto manufacturers’ fleets – known in the USA as Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) – foresee a reduction in emissions from light duty (i.e., passenger) vehicles from 250g C02/mile in 2016 to 163g C02/mile in 2025. Using new developments in conventional drives, and by electrifying drives with electric motors and power electronics, the aim is to reduce emissions with no loss of comfort or safety. The 9th International CTI Symposium Automotive Transmission, HEV and EV Drives (18 – 21 May 2015, Novi, Michigan) will present the latest developments on this topic and provide perspectives for the coming years. In more than 70 specialist lectures, renowned international experts from the USA, Asia and Europe will discuss the technologies and strategies that are shaping our automotive future. The 9th International CTI Symposium will be flanked by the specialist exhibition Transmission Expo. Continue reading

Call for Papers
Futureproof drive concepts – more efficiency through a holistic approach
The ongoing discussion on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions underscores how important it is to develop futureproof drive concepts.
Innovative hybrid concept for compact cars
Small, economical and affordable – that’s how customers like their city cars.
Yet despite the wide range of models, pressure on the international automobile transmission industry is growing. The reasons are future government ceilings for CO2 emissions, and intensifying competition from manufacturers in emerging markets.
